Family Bonds Fund is holding a travel prize draw

The Family Bonds Foundation, a Travel Leaders Group charity that provides grants to members of the travel industry, including travel consultants and their families affected by illness, natural disasters and other sources of financial hardship, is offering a fundraising initiative through land packages and cruises as prizes.

Now through July 1, every $10 donation includes a raffle ticket that is entered into a draw for various land travel packages and cruise prizes. Recordings can also be purchased for $20 for three lottery tickets. Anyone who donates $20 or more will also receive a digital copy of the Family Bonds Foundation Cookbook, which includes recipes from chefs and vendor employees, as well as local recipes from destination partners. The draw will take place on July 6th.


Those wishing to participate can do so by texting BONDS to 56512 or by visiting the Family Bonds Foundation website.

The Family Bonds Foundation was established in 2015 to support families working in and outside the travel industry who are experiencing financial hardship due to illness, natural disasters and other sources of financial hardship such as the COVID-19 pandemic. One of his latest fundraisers raised $13,000 for the Global Empowerment Mission to help Ukraine and its refugees.

Anyone can nominate a family or individual for one of the foundation’s financial grants through the foundation’s website; The deadline for applications for the next series of grants is 12 July.

“This vital charity is an extension of what we do as travel consultants — we bring people together,” said Jackie Friedman, President of the Family Bonds Foundation and President of Nexion Travel Group. “We all face emergencies at some point in our lives and they can be devastating, affecting our livelihoods at a time when we are least able to cope. When members of the travel advisory community need our support, we want to be there to help.”
