RCI Godmother & Family Continue To Give Back
Mackenzie Madeley, daughter of Greg and Donnalea Madeley, poses with new friends in Mali
TTAND agent, Donnalea Madeley, who was named godmother of Royal Caribbean’s Liberty of the Seas in recognition of her philanthropic work, will be hosting her annual fundraiser, ‘Great Gourmet Give’ for her charity Hands Across the Nations. The event, now in its fourteenth year, is the main fundraiser for the charity she and her husband Greg founded which helps communities in Mali in West Africa and Bolivia in South America. In the first year the Great Gourmet Give raised $8,000: last year it was $45,000. This year the goal is $50,000.
2017 also marks a special anniversary in Donnalea’s life. It was 10 years ago this year that she was chosen as godmother of the Liberty of the Seas, voted by 15,000 consumers who were asked to select from a group of travel agents from around the world who had been nominated for their services to philanthropy.
