Win the socially green adventure of a lifetime.
Kansas City, KS (PRWEB) October 12, 2011
Kutoa, an innovative start-up that recently emerged on the international scene of green and sustainable travel, just announced its first ever Great Adventure Giveaway. Travelers can now enter to win one of seven trips being offered around the world, each of which meets Kutoa’s “socially green” criteria. Through its user-friendly website, Kutoa lists socially green hotels, ecolodges, and tour companies that all donate time, goods, or money to important social causes in their local the areas. The contest costs $10 USD to enter, and a portion of the proceeds will go directly to local social causes at the destinations chosen by the winning travelers. Two winners will be announced January 1, 2012.
Kutoa, whose name means “to give” in Swahili, developed the Great Adventure Giveaway as a means to promote socially green travel, drive traffic to its website, and raise money for important social causes. Prizes include a four-night jungle cruise for two with Kalimantan Tour Destinations in Indonesia; a four-person canopy tour and discounted lodging with Stormsriver Adventures in South Africa; two different four-day cultural expeditions with RESPONSible Travel Peru; two different types of four-day trips at Finca Esperanza Verde, an ecolodge and organic coffee farm in Nicaragua; and a four-night trip for one, plus discounted travel for a second person, at Sani Lodge in the Ecuadorian Amazon.
The Kutoa destinations offering prizes support vast and varied local social causes. For example, support from these businesses alone extends to local primary schools, community education funds, a shelter for handicapped children, animal welfare and education, HIV AIDS awareness, environmental education, training of community members, and wildlife survival foundations. The winning travelers will get to choose which trip they want, and 20 percent of all contest proceeds will be split evenly between the social causes supported by the chosen destinations.
Travelers can enter the contest themselves or on behalf of someone they think deserves a great getaway. To enter, go to http://www.KutoaTravel.com/giveaway.
