Happy New Year! It has become our new tradition to make a donation—in your name, our esteemed and loyal travelers, travel advisors, and friends—at the end of each year to an organization that is doing charitable work in a region we visit, or for a cause we support. This year, we decided to leave the decision-making up to you. We chose three organizations and asked our travelers, via e-mail, to choose their favorite cause and then divided up our donation dollars based on the number of votes each organization received. We are pleased to announce the following allocations for our 2010 “World of Thanks” donation:
• Children in the Wilderness – 46%
• Henderson Island Project – 22%
• Save Our Seas – 31%
Thank you for traveling with us and for making this donation possible. We hope you had a happy holiday season and wish you a healthy and prosperous 2011!
