According to the website Cause Inspired Media, changes in support for charitable causes may have dipped during the worst of the Covid pandemic, but the results of a recent Fidelity Charitable study produced some surprising news: Going forward, donors not only intend to continue to contribute to worthy causes throughout the remainder of 2021, but 25-percent of respondents intend to increase the amount they give in 2022.
Why mention these statistics when you’re all about finding a vacation spot for your next getaway? Because if you support nonprofits, why not choose a luxury resort that is close to home to double down on the reason for your visit? At Chabil Mar Resort, the property’s “Pack for a Purpose” initiative generates lots of goodwill and help for underprivileged Belize school children. Guests are drawn to this cause and you will be, too.
About the initiative that captures hearts and minds
The ability to help children in need while enjoying a lavish vacation at a boutique property that is running out of wall space to display awards is likely to give you the most amount of satisfaction you’ve experienced in years. Pack with a Purpose is a dynamic, global nonprofit committed to both the kids who benefit and the personal aims and goals of travelers looking to make meaningful contributions at the same time they enjoy getting away.
At Chabil Mar Resort, frequent guests know to leave a little room in their suitcases when they pack for items that may be small but make a world of difference to the kids who don’t have them, like school supplies, age-appropriate books, arts and crafts materials, educational games and especially soccer and basketballs plus jump ropes and other activity-inducing items. Leave your donation at the resort’s front desk where you will receive the thanks of a grateful staff on behalf of the kids.
Kids and animals: you can help both!
Chabil Mar has “adopted” St. John’s Memorial School in Placencia Village, which was established in 2009 and serves kids whose ages range between 3 and 12. If you’re a big animal supporter, you can also pack goodies that are dog and kitty appropriate, all of which will be donated to the Placencia, Belize Humane Society where much-appreciated food, treats, bowls, bedding and everything pet appropriate is needed and received with love and gratitude.
Imagine yourself lounging on an unspoiled, private Caribbean beach having just come from your elegant digs after enjoying gourmet meals at the resort’s restaurant and knowing that the items you brought are making a bigger difference than you will ever know. Need specifics? Check the list on the resort’s website and contribute what you can.
There’s only one downside to staying at Chabil Mar and supporting this worthwhile cause: It could become a habit! And as you feel gratitude for having come through Covid by supporting the causes you care about at home, add this one to your list and rest assured, you’ll feel as good about your generosity as you do when you’re served an icy beverage while lying in the Belize sun at this posh resort!
