Global tour operator Collette has announced the release of the first dedicated Collette Cares inspirational guide to giving back globally.
The guide celebrates 10 years of giving back to the community with a focus on hunger and a global volunteer program. The Collette Foundation explores philanthropic opportunities in communities abroad, its employees give their time to improve communities through hunger and education initiatives, and its travelers participate in these opportunities to give something back to the countries they visit. Projects have been established in destinations such as Ecuador, South Africa and Australia, and last year employees contributed 5,000 hours of service through 1,400 volunteer engagements.
“Collette’s employees and travelers have given so much to the world over the past 10 years,” said John Sutherland, manager of corporate social responsibility, in a press release. “We’re excited to share the work that we’ve accomplished with the hopes that our guests continued support will enable us to reach the next goal.”
Collette is the longest-running tour operator in North America and has been providing guided travel to all seven continents for 100 years. The Collette Cares guide is printed on recycled paper using biodegradable ink, in line with the company’s values of corporate social responsibility. An electronic version of the guide can be viewed here.
