Burien’s Giving Zone Bringing America’s Soldiers Home
We got an email from Hope Kerkof, Public Relations Director for Burien-based The Giving Zone, announcing a new fundraiser:
Due to the current economic crisis, many of Americaâ€™s soldiers will not be able to afford to come home for the holidays.
The Giving Zone, a Burien-based nonprofit organization, is launching Operation Home for the Holidays, which is seeking people to donate airline miles or credit card rewards to help these soldiers come home.
Monte Regier, Executive Director of The Giving Zone, explains, â€œWatching the economic crisis daily on the news, it very apparent the military families, our soldiers, will be hit the hardest this holiday season. Therefore, the reason for launching Operation Home for the Holidays. We at the Giving Zone, already being an airline miles and credit rewards donation portal for charities, are in the perfect position to make a difference for our American Heroes. We are asking for Americaâ€™s help. Even though main street has been hit hard in their pocketbooks, they can still make a difference and help our soldiers thru donating their airline miles.â€
The Giving Zone is a global reward incentive trading portal where dollars, points and miles earned as incentives from air travel, hotel, credit card purchases and other incentive programs can be donated to Giving Zone‘s registered projects. The Giving Zone is helping charities around the world ranging from food banks, homeless shelters, orphanages, medical research, national disaster relief projects, abuse shelters, missionaries, and many more.
Your airline miles and credit card reward points can be converted to cash equivalent for charities. Although this is a time cumbersome process for individual charities to do on their own, the Giving Zone is a mega website where non-profit organizations can be listed and people can go to the Giving Zone website to donate their miles and points or cash donations to the charity of their choosing. The Giving Zone takes care of all the details of converting the points to cash donations!
Make a difference today, and help Americaâ€™s finest men & women come home for the holidays. Support Operation Home for the Holidays, donate your airline miles and credit card reward points at www.GivingZone.net.
