Online Travel Agency launches 2016 holiday campaign with video documenting surprise delivery of over 1,000 inflatable solar lights and school supplies to village in Nepal
CheapOair, a leading flights-focused, next generation concierge travel service, released the company’s holiday campaign kick-off video today concurrent with Giving Tuesday. The video, titled “Give to New Heights,” highlights CheapOair’s recent philanthropic partnership with Kids of Kathmandu, a non-profit organization helping to rebuild schools in Nepal’s most earthquake devastated areas, to deliver solar-powered lights and school supplies to children in the remote region of Timal, Nepal.
CheapOair provided funding for transportation, logistical support and manpower to deliver over 1,000 Luci® lights provided by MPOWERD, Inc. for the grand opening of Kids of Kathmandu’s first of 50 re-built schools. The children from the local village gathered at the school at dusk for an unknown surprise to find their new school building illuminated for the first time. Each child was also given an individual light to take home, a backpack, personal white board, water bottle, and toy airplane.
“These supplies are imperative to this region due to Nepal’s power shortages that often cut electricity during the evening hours; the time of day a child would usually focus on homework,” said Stefanie Smith, Social Media Director at CheapOair. “The goal of this project was to provide the children with items that will allow them to maximize the benefits of their new school – a personal light for full-circle education, a water bottle to utilize the school’s new water purification system, and white board for sustainable learning.”
The video kicks off CheapOair’s month-long holiday campaign focused on recognizing people who go above and beyond to give back to their families, neighborhoods or communities in special ways. During the campaign, people can nominate friends or family they think deserve special recognition for their spirit of giving. CheapOair will then select a winner each day through December 24, 2016 to receive a $50 CheapOair gift card.
