TTAND & partners raise $12K for Pencils for Kids

The Travel Agent Next Door raised almost $12,000 for Pencils for Kids, its main charity partner, through various initiatives involving agents and their clients, including a $3,000 contribution from TTAND and donations from RCI and NCL.

“We believe it is very important to give back at The Travel Agent Next Door,” said Flemming Friisdahl, founder of TTAND. ”We were inspired by Robin Mednick, President & Executive Director of Pencils for Kids, last year at our 2016 conference where she was the keynote speaker and we have since adopted Pencils for Kids as our main charity partner.”

Mednick said the host agency’s generous and enthusiastic support has meant the world to Pencils for Kids - enabling the charity to make a significant impact on the lives of women and children in Libore, Niger.

Pencils for Kids works with the community to directly fund education-related projects like schools, scholarships for girls, sewing centres, or programs like Farmers of the Future. They also approach organizations that have expertise in other areas beyond education, like sports and health, and invite them to bring their talents to the same community.

The Travel Agent Next Door just launched a web page and will continue fund-raising efforts on behalf of the charity.
