Charity Pro Travel to 'Stand Up 2 Cancer'
International travel program partners with Entertainment Industry Foundation for national cancer fundraiser Sept. 5, 2008.
Charity Pro Travel Inc., a revolutionary travel site and booking engine that donates commissions to both selected and consumer chosen charities is proud to announce its partnership with Stand Up To Cancer, a program of the Entertainment Industry Foundation.
"I believe it is unacceptable that one person every minute dies from cancer in this country," said Brad Maloney, president of Charity Pro Travel Inc. "The only way we will stop cancer in its tracks is through research and it is going to take all of us to raise the funds necessary for scientists to discover the breakthroughs that will lead to early detection, treatment and prevention of this deadly disease."
Stand Up To Cancer (www.standup2cancer.org) is a new initiative created to raise philanthropic dollars for the acceleration of ground-breaking cancer research. The nationally televised event will air Sept. 5, 2008 at 8 p.m. PST/EST on ABC, CBS and NBC. The special will feature live performances by legendary recording artists and stars from film and television who will perform as well as present filmed content giving viewers insight into cancer.
Charity Pro Travel Inc. will donate increased percentages of proceeds from all travel booked at www.charityprotravel.com thru September 2008 to Stand Up To Cancer.
"At some point, cancer touches us all, every individual and every family. This is a great event and it's time we, as a nation, use every way we have to take a final stand against this terrible disease. If you just don't have the time to volunteer, can't play in the local golf fundraiser or can't run that charity race, we can help you help others. You take the vacation, we make the donation. It is that easy. Now everyone can make a difference" explains Maloney.
Maloney founded the company on that basic principle, and www.charityprotravel.com is quickly becoming a popular and preferred full-service travel site and search engine that donates money with every online booking. Charity Pro Travel donates 25% of the company's commission to the charity of your choice, in your honor, plus 10% to the featured Charity of the Month. For Stand Up To Cancer, Charity Pro Travel has increased their donation, pledging up to 50% of all commissions.
Charity Pro Travel offers the lowest rates as well as live travel experts to book your resort travel, airfare, rental cars, cruises, condo's and vacation homes worldwide.
"Travel is a 7 trillion dollar industry, and our business and corporate travel programs are second to none in the industry," says Maloney. "Imagine, every time you or your associates travel you are taking a stand for your cause. This is an opportunity for us all...it's time to Stand Up America and Stand Up To Cancer."
