We recently donated $2,500 to Hunkapi Programs after the therapeutic riding program received the most votes in our crowdsourced giving contest, beCause Destination Matters. ResorTime presented the check to Terra Schaad, executive director of Hunkapi, at the non-profit’s headquarters in Scottsdale, Arizona.
“We are humbled and grateful,” said Terra. “I want to thank ResorTime for what you do and for considering us in your contributions.” Hunkapi entered the contest for the second quarter of 2015, competing with two national organizations, the Pro Player and Project Athena Foundations.
Let’s Raise the Bar!
ResorTime also launched another 10 for 10 offer. Vacation for Good to save ten percent, and we’ll donate ten percent of the proceeds to Hunkapi. The goal is to raise an additional $2,500 to provide 30 hours of therapy to a local child with autism.
“Our giving program, beCause Destination Matters, is special because it supports the causes that matter to our customers,” said Renee Wagner, Director of Marketing at ResorTime. “It provides everyone an opportunity to give back at any level. You can submit a story, vote, share, or book a vacation.”
In a gesture of gratitude for the donation, Hunkapi provided a two-hour therapeutic riding session to Arizona resident Renee F. and her seven children, four of whom have special needs.
Renee F. received a sponsored vacation from Grand Pacific Resorts in May 2015 as part of the company’s Extraordinary Vacations program with Send Me on Vacation, a non-profit that works with breast cancer survivors.
Hunkapi touched the hearts of the people who matter to us (that would be you!), and we wanted to do more than just write a check. We were thrilled when we realized this special family lives in the area and could benefit from Hunkapi’s services.
“We had so much fun! The kids keep asking to go back and visit their horses,” said Renee F. afterwards. “We’ve actually wanted to go horseback riding before, but it wasn’t possible with our large family and all the medical bills. Thank you to everyone who made this happen!”
We were so inspired by Hunkapi, we’ve decided to extend our 10 for 10 offer through the end of October 2015. Go here for details. Then take a look at all the destinations you can visit with ResorTime.
