Resort Rentals Cares!

Resort Rentals cares!

 

We recently donated in the amount of $50K to Tampa Bay Watch, a local nonprofit organization that does amazing restoration work in the Tampa Bay area;  www.tampabaywatch.org . Our donation was generated by a settlement that we received from the BP disaster that occurred in the Gulf, along with $10/new booking that we received until we met that goal.  It was a SUCCESS and our goal was reached!!  (Below is a photo of Resort Rentals owner, Rudy Consoni, presenting the check to Peter Clark and Pamela Arbisi of Tampa Bay Watch)

Our donation to Tampa Bay Watch was not only a good cause but it also felt GREAT and we wanted to keep it going!

This time around we collected to give back to those that were affected by the recent hurricanes.  We reached our goal amount of $2500 and connected with an amazing foundation, Fundación Stefano, which is helping those affected in Puerto Rico.  With our donation they were able to buy twin size beds, sheets, diapers, necessities for the elderly and more.  It feels great to give back and with your help we can!  To donate or to see the cause we are contributing to, visit www.fundacionstefano.org.

We recently added to our “Resort Rentals Cares” campaign.  Some of our owners, Julie and Mark DuBois, participate in medical missions to Haiti, one of the poorest countries in the world. They are very active with “Friends of the Children of Haiti” (FOTCOH) which provides medical, dental and surgical support to Haitians in need. With each new booking we receive we will donate $10 to this cause until we reach our goal of $1000. To see the amazing work they do or to contribute to this cause visit http://fotcoh.org/

 

 

For the LOVE of Tampa Bay!

 

We care not only for our customers but also for our environment and beaches!

As you all know, in 2010 The Gulf of Mexico experienced what is now considered to be the largest accidental marine oil spill in the history of the petroleum industry.  Resort Rentals filed a claim with BP in 2012 and that claim was just recently settled.  We made a promise to give a good part of that to the one “person” who was affected the most, Mother Nature.

Tampa Bay Watch is a local, nonprofit organization that does amazing restoration work in the Tampa Bay area and they have a track record to prove it!  See for yourself at just how amazing and important this organization is to our area at www.tampabaywatch.org .

Resort Rentals has already donated $35,000 to this organization and is committed to a total of $50,000 to this great cause.  With every new booking that we receive, $10 will be given to Tampa Bay Watch until our ultimate goal is reached.   Help us meet our goal amount and keep our destination area and beautiful beaches clean and healthy!

Our donation story was also featured in a local publication, Paradise News, as they produced a cover story entitled “For the LOVE of Tampa Bay”.  The article was designated to Tampa Bay Watch and their story of “Restoring the Bay Every Day” and our contribution to the cause was only fitting for the article at hand.
