The Non-Profit Discovery Southeast Joins with the Small Ship Cruise Line for Holiday Donations
JUNEAU, AK, November 21st, 2022 – UnCruise Adventures partners with the long-standing non-profit, Discovery Southeast, to increase awareness of the natural world and the ways the 30-year-old nonprofit provides exploration for kids and families. The small ship cruise line is providing a percentage of all adventure cruise bookings made on Giving Tuesday, November 29th to the 501(c)(3) organization.
“Our partnerships mean a lot to us and set an example of celebrating nature, sustainability and recreating responsibly for both new and old generations,” shares UnCruise Adventures CEO, Captain Dan Blanchard “As a small business ourselves we understand what it means to connect our guests to nature, and this holiday season can provide an opportunity of experiential travel while raising funds to support valuable programs and nature camps for kids, like those with Discovery Southeast.”
Giving Tuesday, now a popular hashtag was created as a global generosity movement by givingtuesday.org. This inspired idea has evolved to give companies and partners the opportunity to showcase organizations that are doing good in the world. UnCruise Adventures’ mission statement and core company values include the pursuit of being good to each other and this holiday season is a perfect time to recognize that.
“UnCruise has worked with Discovery Southeast for decades,” states Shawn Eisele, Discovery Southeast’s Executive Director. “UnCruise has transported teachers for immersive professional development expeditions across Southeast Alaska and has contributed significantly to the organization each year.”
The organization is committed to reaching every local child without financial barriers and relies on membership fees and donations throughout the year. Individuals and companies can support donations on Giving Tuesday and become a Discovery Southeast member or donate any time of the year directly through the organization.
The company’s Giving Tuesday donations and partnership with Discovery Southeast hopes to inspire participation in these communities and embrace the power to drive growth through causes that matter.
