Brett Tollman, CEO and President of The Travel Corporation

In response to the tragic events in Nepal on 25APR, 2015 and again on 12MAY 2015, The Travel Corporation and the TreadRight Foundation are assisting in the recovery efforts by donating USD $20,000 to Tourism Cares.

The fund will be used with local industry leaders on tourism projects that may include: identifying needs and prioritizing actions for tourism recovery; revitalizing Nepal's tourism product and its marketing; targeted restoration and physical investments and training and recovery funds for industry professionals.

“In difficult times like these, it is important for the global travel and tourism industry to come together," said Brett Tollman, CEO and President of The Travel Corporation. “The tourism sector plays an important role in Nepal's economy, as such, our industry is in a position to leverage our contributions in order to assist with immediate recovery as well as long term support."

In addition, The Travel Corporation and TreadRight have earmarked a further USD $30,000 for rebuilding efforts after the initial relief efforts. Current plans include the rebuilding of a school, in collaboration with Happyheartsfund.org.
