As we have for the last two years, AirPlus will again host a charity March Madness tournament for the travel industry. We have chosen to direct the funds we raise this year to the Care & Share organization again. Last year the nearly $3,000 we raised was used to purchase a tanker that now brings fresh water to the community in India.
As much as we lament the challenges we face day-to-day, they pale in comparison to the real life issues faced by millions around the world that do not have anywhere near the opportunities or resources that we enjoy...both individually and as a society. AirPlus is deeply committed to finding small ways to make a difference and we hope that you will join us.
The NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament is one of the most watched and discussed sporting events each year. It also accounts for one of the most commonly cited distractions at the office each March. Through this fundraising event we endeavor to bring meaning to this annual rite of spring.
Here is how you can join in. Visit our online donation site here
and add to our goal of sending even more to the children in India than we did last year. Once we reach the individual donation target of $2,500, AirPlus will add in another $1,000 on top.
Everyone who donates though the FirstGiving site will then receive an invitation email from the CBSSports.com site with instructions for setting up your online user and making your selections. This year AirPlus will award the winner a new 32GB Apple iPad.
Selection Sunday is March 16 and the games start a few days later so act quickly to get involved. Thanks for the support.
