We hit a big milestone this month. Hotels for Hope officially funded our first RoomFunding™ project. This is awesome. Really, really awesome.
The Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (or “TAPS” for short) project will go down as our first fully funded project. This means that 200 volunteers will be trained as mentors to children who have lost a loved one while serving our country. TAPS offers one-on-one support, coping strategies and just plain old fun for the kids who attend the TAPS Good Grief Camps.
When we had the idea for RoomFunding, H4H sought a platform that would amplify the work of nonprofits. We also wanted to make it easier for clients, hotel partners and vendors to see the impact of their room nights. And I think we did just that.
Hotels for Hope and TAPS send a big “thank you” to those groups that selected this project. And to the hotels that hosted these groups. You made this possible.
Below are stats from this TAPS RoomFunding project…
