Viventura Creates New Christmas Game, Donates to Charity
Travel operator creates Christmas Game. For each entry in the contest, viventura will donate to viSozial; a non-profit organization focused on helping education, health, environment and community development throughout South America.
One of the greatest aspects of the contest is that while participants answer fun-filled trivia questions, for every correct answer submitted, viventura will donate .25 cents to viSozial. viSozial, a not-for-profit organization, focuses on promoting education, increasing health care, protecting natural environments, and supporting community development for underprivileged South America neighborhoods. Since 2002, viSozial has succeeded in completing major campaigns such as providing dental care and hygiene to both students and parents, construction of 50 toilets throughout the schools and wawawasi community, promoting nutrition to over 200 participants to eliminate malnutrition, and purchased musical instruments and financed a music teacher for educational purposes. Some current goals viSozial hopes to achieve includes supplying a local nursery with food for one month, providing each student with school uniforms, and organizing a soccer game for 60 students.
Starting on December 1st a daily question will be posted on viventura's website covering topics such as Peru's culture, their history, and the various adventures one can experience on their tours. With each correct response, participants will automatically get one entry for the drawing. Individuals can increase their chances of winning by inviting friends and family members to join the game as well. Players who invite friends receive 3 additional entries for each friend that registers. With viventura, winning is both fun and easy!
As a recent tour operator to the United States market, viventura hopes this contest will not only increase people's interest in traveling to South America, but also show that tours with a small, intimate group can be more desirable than booking with a large travel agency who does trips to hundreds of different counties. viventura's one and only focus is tours to South America, so tour guides have more local knowledge and latest news about South American countries, all while providing individual attention to every traveler. Above all, with 10 years experience in the European market viventura has a reputation of offering memorable locations with exciting activities, exceptional customer service, and tours that support local economies all at an absolutely amazing price value.
Don’t just visit South America, experience it with a one of a kind South American vacation from viventura!
