Travelers Support the International Red Cross via Tripping.com
Imagine if booking a beach bungalow in Fiji or an apartment in NYC could help support the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC). With the launch of Tripping.com’s new search platform, travelers will not only have access to over 500,000 listings from sites including HomeAway, Flipkey, Roomorama, iStopOver and 9flats, but they will also be able to contribute to the Red Cross, as Tripping plans to donate part of its revenue from the rental listings to that organization.
In the spring of this year, Tripping participated in the Hands for Japan campaign, which raised $1 million for disaster relief after the earthquake and tsunami which hit Japan in March. The funds were donated to support disaster relief efforts through the American Red Cross. It was through our fundraising for the American Red Cross that we the Tripping team became very excited about the work of the IFRC.
For us, travel has always been about making the world a better place and about recognizing that we are all part of a global community. Through helping travelers contribute to an organization like the IFRC, we are excited to expand the scope of our impact and that of our community in creating positive social change around the world.
A big thank you to everyone in the Do Good Things community for your support and for inspiring us with your generosity and kindness.
The Tripping Team
