Goway has joined Tourism Cares, the charitable arm of the travel and tourism industry.
Tourism Cares brings the entire travel and tourism industry together to make a greater impact on issues that matter to everyone, such as investing in emerging tourism destinations or those in crisis, and supporting a strong workforce. Tourism Cares helps the industry make the most of its giving and volunteering, for the benefit of employees, destinations and the travelling public.
“We are pleased to announce Goway’s support of Tourism Cares, to enhance our existing social responsibility issues,” commented Goway marketing manager Emma Cottis. “Our diversity of staff is reflected in our variety of passions; for the local community, people, heritage, culture, animals and the environment to name a few. To prove our commitment to our core values, Goway encourages the staff to give their time and resources to a select group of charities and initiatives.”
Tourism Cares membership complements any corporate giving effort, offering a range of services and benefits: powerful outcomes and the satisfaction that come from working together; employee engagement and volunteering; B2B recognition and visibility; storytelling and advocacy; peer sharing of best practices; disaster response programs, co-ordinating the industry when the needs are greatest; and even consulting and custom programs tailored for individual companies.
“We are thrilled to have Goway as part of our community,” said Tourism Cares CEO Mike Rea. “The stronger our membership, the greater our impact can be. It’s an honour to work with companies and employees so dedicated to giving back.”
In related news, Goway has joined efforts with Tourism Cares’ Nepal Recovery Fund in the long-term recovery of Nepal and helping the country revive its largest industry, which is tourism.
“We cannot forget about Nepal now that the dust has settled. They need our help more than ever,” says Maureen Atkinson, product manager for Goway Asia. “We encourage the travel industry, in addition to any relief efforts they are supporting, to please allocate a portion of your Nepal donation budget to the Tourism Cares Nepal Recovery Fund.”
