Envelopes in back of plane seat

Postby KarenS » Sun May 07, 2006 7:53 am

From Cayman Net News: "Fundraising in Cayman is taking to the skies in May as leading Cayman Islands law firm, Walkers, and Cayman Airways launch its Change in the Air fundraising programme.

Innovation being a defining characteristic of the Walkers’ approach to business and community service, Walkers proposed the programme concept to Cayman Airways several months ago and the result has been the creation of a fundraising initiative dedicated to the direct financial support of charitable organisations in Cayman, stated a press release from Walkers.

The programme will enable Cayman Airways passengers to contribute towards the raising of funds for a designated Cayman charity by placing a donation in special ‘Change in the Air' envelopes.

The envelopes will be placed in the seat back pockets of every inbound and outbound Cayman Airways flight. If a passenger chooses to make a donation (any currency will be accepted), the envelope will then be handed to a member of the In–flight crew prior to the passenger disembarking the plane.

The Cayman Islands National Recovery Fund is the first charitable organisation designated by Walkers and Cayman Airways to benefit from the Change in the Air programme.

The NRF is a private independent Trust, established on 23 September 2004, to relieve persons who were injured, bereaved, rendered homeless, destitute or otherwise affected by Hurricane Ivan.

Among the beneficiaries of the Fund’s efforts are some of the community’s most vulnerable population – the elderly, disabled, ill, and families with young children.

Today, the Fund is focused on the priority of suitable housing for all, as one critical area in which it can help to reduce Hurricane Ivan to a distant memory. Beyond this, the Fund embraces a broader role of improving the quality of life for the people of the Cayman Islands and promoting personal and community development."
