This year was slightly different than years past though, as we teamed up with The Humane Society of New York to host an adoption event! They brought numerous dogs for people to play with, and to teach passersby about the adoption process. We were also able to raise $200 from people walking by the adoption stand by raffling off a CheapOAir voucher! All in all, it was a great day of fun in the sun for Fareportal employees, and a huge help to get the word out about The Humane Society and try to help some animals in need! We look forward to partnering with The Humane Society in the future!

      March 8, 2014
      Earlier in the year, we were contacted by one of our customers who shared with us her daughter, Kelcey was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. Due to her chemotherapy treatments, Kelcey was having a difficult time in school and work (had to reduce her hours) which also had an impact on her ability to pay off her medical bills.  Her family was hosting a fundraiser event on March 8th and asked if we could donate something for them to auction off.  Through our great airline and hotel suppliers partnerships, we were able to send them a travel related themed basket with CheapOair merchandise, 2 domestic round trip vouchers from JetBlue and 2 hotel gift cards from Best Western! For updates on her road to recovery, please read Kelcey’s blog (http://kbuntain.wordpress.com/). Your friends at CheapOair, JetBlue and Best Western wish you the best and a speedy recovery.
