Another great reason to stay at a Sandals or Beaches property is to support the Sandals Foundation! It is a non-profit organization launched back in March 2009 to help Sandals Resorts International continue to make a difference in the Caribbean. 100% of every dollar donated goes directly towards funding areas like education, community and environment.
One of the ways you can support Sandals Foundation is by bringing a backpack with school supplies, clothing, toys/games and books. When you check into your resort they will take the backpack from you and distribute the items accordingly. While you are on vacation you can get involved and give back with Reading Road Trip through Island Routes. Visitors can volunteer 2 hours of their time at one of Sandals Foundation’s adopted schools. You get to interact with the children and help them with their literacy skills. There is a nominal fee which includes cost of ground transportation.
Another way to support Sandals Foundation is simply by making a donation. When you are checking into one of their properties you can make a donation at that time or anytime online.
Jamaica is currently supporting the following projects; Great Shape Dental Eye Care Program, Marine Sanctuaries and Construction & upgrades to local schools. Each year volunteers include opticians, optical technicians, nurses and more from the United States and Canada to participate in the weeklong clinic.
Sandals and Beaches Resorts have also made an environmentally friendly decision to use paper straws only. If you do not like paper straws you can purchase a reusable straw at the gift shop on property. All proceeds go to Sandals Foundation.
Sandals and Beaches completely changed my perspective of what an All Inclusive resort can be.
