MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Radisson Rewards™, the global rewards program of Radisson Hotel Group™, has introduced a new program with SOS Children’s Villages, allowing members to redeem Radisson Rewards points for monetary donations. SOS Children's Villages is the world’s largest non-governmental organization dedicated to building loving, stable families for orphaned, abandoned, and other vulnerable children. Operating in 135 countries, including the United States, SOS Children's Villages exemplifies Radisson Hotel Group’s commitment to caring for people and communities.
“The points donated through Radisson Rewards will go toward furthering the SOS Children’s Villages mission of providing children with a stable and supportive family, a safe home and warm bed, education and empowerment, emergency and medical care, and more,” said Inge Huijbrechts, Global Senior Vice President, Responsible Business and Safety & Security, Radisson Hotel Group. “Through Radisson Rewards donations, members will have the power to transform the lives of millions of children and families.”
Members may donate points to SOS Children’s Villages by visiting www.radissonhotels.com/rewards/sos to help provide children with items such as school supplies, clothes and even some special surprises. For example, 12,000 points donated can provide a child in an SOS foster family with a backpack or enough school supplies for a semester. There is no maximum number of points a member may donate.
“There is no better time to launch this initiative,” said Meron Mathias, Senior Director, SOS Children’s Villages USA. “For so many people, the holiday season represents family, friends and fellowship. Children who lack protection and a support system are increasingly vulnerable. Through the simple act of donating Radisson Rewards points, millions of members can make individual gestures of generosity that – collectively – change the course of young lives.”
