Seattle, WA (PRWEB) October 6, 2006
TimeshareAid, through the support of Holiday Group, a Seattle-based timeshare company, announced a $250,000 donation to Feed The Children, a nonprofit hunger relief organization.
"This is the purpose for which TimeshareAid was envisioned," said the organization’s founder, Alan Renberger. "The millions of timeshare owners, developers, and resorts worldwide have the opportunity to make a huge difference in the lives of those in need."
"We at Holiday are proud to give to those in need," said David Skinner, president of Holiday Group. "We hope the donation acts as a catalyst for timeshare owners and the industry to realize that uniting behind our own dreams can make a huge difference in the lives of others."
"We are so grateful for the generous donation made by the Holiday Group," said Larry Jones, president and co-founder of Feed The Children. "This donation will go a long way towards helping the smallest victims of hunger have a brighter winter and holiday season."
Since 1992, Holiday Group has been a pioneer in selling timeshares on the secondary market through online marketing. This donation in partnership with TimeshareAid to Feed The Children follows a $50,000 donation in 2005.
