This GivingTuesday, Book the Gift of Travel and Give the Experience of a Wish

CruisesOnly will donate $5 to Make-A-Wish® for every cruise vacation booked, up to $25,000

Wilmington, Mass. (November 24, 2020) – GivingTuesday, a global generosity movement, has quickly become one of the most popular days to do good by giving back. In celebration of this holiday, CruisesOnly, America’s Largest Cruise Agency, announced for its 10th consecutive year that it will donate $5 to Make-A-Wish® for every cruise vacation booked, up to $25,000. The chance to give back starts at 12 a.m. on GivingTuesday, December 1, through 11:59 p.m. on December 2. Customers will also have the chance to make an additional $5 donation.

“Wishes don’t happen without the support of individuals and sponsors like World Travel Holdings,” said LuAnn Bott, vice president of revenue partnerships and services for Make-A-Wish America. “For a family with a child fighting a critical illness, every day of waiting for a wish is one too many. With the help of our supporters, we will bring joy back into families lives this holiday season.”

CruisesOnly and its employees have proudly supported Make-A-Wish since July 2011 through its shared initiatives raising more than $1M since inception, with more than $230,000 coming from this particular promotion.

“A lot of non-profit organizations have struggled for donations this year due to COVID-19 so we are excited to be able to support our signature charity Make-A-Wish,” said Loren Kennedy, senior vice president of Customer Care for CruisesOnly. “Our customers are looking to the future and excited about traveling again and this allows them to easily give back to such a worthwhile cause.”

Since then, Make-A-Wish has become the world’s leading children’s wish-granting organization, serving children in every community in the United States and in nearly 50 countries worldwide. Together, generous donors, supporters, staff and more than 34,000 volunteers across the U.S. unite to deliver hope to wish kids and their families when they need it most.
