VacationWired.com believes that we should all do our part to make this a better world in which to live. That being said, we contribute a substantial portion of sales revenue to charities that sustain our future through education, and third world development and the conservation of wildlife and historic sites around the world.
Ten percent of all profits are matched by the Sneberger Charitable Trust, whose president is also president of VacationWired.com, and donated to charity. Already over $200,000 has been given to reputable and worthy causes such as Big Brothers, Big Sisters; to sustaining scholarships at the Good Hope and St. Mary's Schools on the Caribbean island of St. Croix and Wyoming Seminary in Pennsylvania, to the Geronimo Funds whose mission it is to rescue people from slavery and indentured servitude in third world countries and help them to find a new life, to the World Wildlife Federation committed to the preservation and awareness of endangered species of animals, and to the Patron's Foundation which quietly helps people who fall through the cracks of the welfare system to regain self sufficiency. Other causes supported through our donations include Equilibrium who through horseback riding provide therapy for physically and mentally challenged children and to Tourism Cares For Tomorrow, a charity dedicated to preserving jobs and economies through the preservation of the world’s greatest heritage sites. Through all we do, we show our commitment to making the world a better place in which to live and travel!
