Tourism Cares Marks Growth And Progress With Updated Mission

Press Release – NORWOOD, MA – JUNE 29, 2017 – Tourism Cares, the philanthropic community of the travel & tourism industry, has updated its mission:

We advance the travel industry’s social impact to help people and places thrive.

“The ways our community gives have evolved and strengthened over the past 15 years, thanks to our members and supporters,” said Derek Hydon, chair of the board of directors for Tourism Cares. “We’ve updated our mission statement to reflect where we are on this journey together, and where we’re going.”

The revised mission is highlighted in the organization’s 2016-17 annual Community Report, released this week. The report focuses on stories illustrating Tourism Cares’ work over the past year, including:

  • investing $600,000 in U.S. national parks through Tourism Cares for Our National Parks industry volunteering and the Centennial Tour Operators cause-related marketing program,
  • supporting global destinations like Peru and Nepal, and launching a new program in Jordan in 2018,
  • and training more than 500 Good Travels Advisors as experts in helping travelers give back through volunteer service and philanthropy.

“We’re proud of our community and what we have accomplished together,” said Mike Rea, CEO of Tourism Cares, “We’re excited about what the future holds.”

Tourism Cares’ members reflect all sectors of the industry, including tour operators, travel agencies, lodging/hospitality, cruise, attractions, information technology, online travel agents, media/public relations, airlines/transportation, financial/professional, and destinations.
