Throughout the pandemic, Karisma Hotels and Resorts has made it a priority to give back to the communities surrounding the company’s properties. El Dorado Royale in Mexico has been donating food and meals from the resort’s 75,000-sq. ft. greenhouse, while Nickelodeon Hotels and Resorts Punta Cana works with local officials and agencies to deliver more than 800 meals daily. And now, Karisma is reaching out to friends and families of people working on the front line for nominations to reward many of them for their efforts.
The “Holidays for Your Heroes” program will award 150 five-day stays for the winners and guests at all-inclusive resorts set on stunning beaches and packed with fun and exciting perks. From now through June 30, Karisma is accepting nominations for anyone from healthcare workers to grocery store employees to honor them for putting others above themselves during this chaotic time.
“Our goal with Holidays for Your Heroes is to provide some much-needed hope and positivity to frontline workers during this challenging period, so they can look forward to spending quality time with loved ones as soon as the time is right,” explained Bill Linehan, president of Premier Worldwide Marketing, on behalf of Karisma. “From medical staff to truck drivers, delivery people and grocery workers, we are surrounded by heroes working day and night to care for us, so we want to give back to them in the way that we can – through the power of travel, which allows people to connect with each other and create wonderful lasting memories.”
Nominations can be made through Karisma’s website, requiring a brief description of the nominee, or on Instagram, using the hashtag #HolidaysForYourHeroes. Each winner will receive a five-day stay at the Caribbean or Latin American property of his or her choice, including popular spots like Azul Beach Resort Negril, the new Margaritaville Island Reserve Riviera Cancun, and the adults-only El Dorado Royale, which we’re told offers an otherworldly grapefruit paloma.
