Caribbean hotels unite for Dominica

dhtaThe Dominica Hotel and Tourism Association (DHTA) partners with its regional umbrella association to launch ‘Caribbean Hotels Unite for Dominica’ to support the people of Dominica in their recovery efforts after the passage of Tropical Storm Erika.

‘Caribbean Hotels Unite for Dominica’ is a joint campaign by the DHTA and the Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association (CHTA), initiated by CHTA First Vice President and President-Elect, Karolin Troubetzkoy, in response to loss of life and considerable infrastructural and property damage caused by Tropical Storm Erika.

The campaign is simple: Rally CHTA member hotels from across the Caribbean region to donate 3-7 night vacation packages, which will be auctioned online.
.
CHTA will administer the campaign, including the registration of participating hotels, and has contracted the services of Charity Buzz, an online charity auction platform with global reach of 125,000+ registered bidders in 109 countries, to manage the auction process and all aspects of campaign promotion.

“More than 22 hotels have donated stays so far, and we expect more to register as the CHTA shares the invitation to participate with its network of 32 national hotel and tourism associations from across the Caribbean region,” reported Troubetzkoy, Executive Director of St. Lucia’s Anse Chastanet and Jade Mountain Resorts.

At the close of the auction period, all proceeds will be directed to address urgent needs identified by the host community through close cooperation with relief organizations and the individual communities affected by Tropical Storm Erika.

“Both associations, here in Dominica and at the level of the Caribbean region, recognize the need to come together to contribute to Dominica’s recovery,” remarked DHTA Executive Vice President, Stephanie Astaphan. “The ‘Caribbean Hotels Unite for Dominica’ campaign is our collective contribution to this recovery process on the community level,” asserted Astaphan.

The auction will launch on CharityBuzz.com on September 25, 2015.

    Interesting initiative by the CHTA in partnership with the DHTA… to help create awareness of the significant damage caused by the passage of TS Erika and to help raise funds and in-kind contributions in aid of Dominica’s rehabilitation… Thanks CHTA and DHTA :wink:
