ORLANDO, October 1, 2012 – We are pleased to announce a new way to book travel that empowers travelers to take the trip they want while providing help to those in need. Travelers can now start making a difference by booking their trip through UFOREA.org, where all proceeds will be donated to charity. Great prices are guaranteed on hotels, flights, rental cars and vacations!
The site functions as an online travel agency where travelers can book hotel stays, flights, car rentals, and vacation packages. During the booking process, travelers are able to select from approximately 25 different nonprofit organizations. Once the booking is complete all proceeds are donated by UFOREA to the nonprofit selected by the traveler.
UFOREA, Inc. is an organization dedicated to providing funding to domestic and international nonprofit organizations whose missions are to provide humanitarian, wildlife, or educational aid around the globe. At UFOREA, we believe that travel fosters a greater appreciation and understanding of other cultures, as well as enhancing individuals’
respect of the delicate natural world around the globe. UFOREA accomplishes this on two fronts. First, by connecting individuals with the ability to book travel arrangements, UFOREA assists in exposing travelers to unique experiences and cultures, which facilitates an increased level of appreciation and respect. Secondly, travelers are empowered to direct the proceeds from their booking to a nonprofit organization whose mission is closely tied to their own goals and principals. Thereby, travelers may easily provide assistance to those in need, while inspiring them to further assist their supported cause separately through other means and methods.
The company was started in Orlando, Florida, by three avid travelers who wanted to combine their love of travel with their passion for helping those in need.
