Hilton celebrates its milestone 100th Anniversary.

Hilton, the world’s first global hotel company, celebrates its milestone 100th anniversary.
To mark the occasion, hundreds of hotels around the world are extending Hilton hospitality beyond their doors by taking “Random Acts of Hospitality” to their communities – from Chicago to Shanghai, Dublin to Dubai and everywhere in between.

As it looks ahead to its next century, Hilton also announced today the creation of The Hilton Effect Foundation, which will help create a better world to travel by investing in both organizations and people having a positive impact on the communities Hilton serves. The Foundation is launching with 15 grants to organizations that will support communities around the world. These inaugural grants will support programs around the globe that are creating opportunities for youth, aiding in disaster recovery, and supporting water stewardship and sustainability.

The Foundation builds on the impact already driven by Hilton through its Travel with Purpose corporate responsibility strategy.  Since the inception of Travel with Purpose in 2011, Hilton’s Team Members have performed more than 1.3 million hours of volunteer service.

Celebrating Hilton’s 100th anniversary with hospitality and a global Foundation speaks to the company’s founding vision.

Southwest Airline Relocating to LaGuardia

Southwest Airlines is pulling out of New Jersey's Newark Liberty International Airport following extensive delays caused by the FAA's grounding of the Boeing 757 Max.

The carrier will relocate to LaGuardia Airport in New York effective November 3rd.

Gender Inclusive Events

A top priority for any event planner is making sure their attendees are comfortable. This can mean everything from ordering enough food to controlling the temperature in the conference room. It also requires welcoming people from all walks of life and ensuring that they feel welcome at your event.

Sometimes the simplest change is all it takes to make an attendee feel welcome. Following are a few suggestions on where to start to make your next event more inclusive of all genders and sexual identifications.

The Blue Heart Campaign - July 30th World Day Against Trafficking in Persons (WDATP)

The Blue Heart Campaign is a global awareness raising initiative to fight human trafficking and its impact on society.

 It seeks to encourage involvement from governments, civil society, the corporate sector and individuals alike, to inspire action and help prevent this heinous crime.

In the meeting and event industry, we pride ourselves on having a positive impact on the communities that we visit. It is time to gather our courage and take a stand for those who can’t by wearing a BLUE HEART on the World Day Against Trafficking in Persons (WDATP) on July 30th.

The Blue Heart is increasingly recognized as the international symbol against human trafficking, representing the sadness of those who are trafficked. The campaign allows people to show their solidarity with the victims of human trafficking and increasing their visibility by wearing the Blue Heart. 

Four Actions to Support WDATP
1. Wear a blue heart in support of the Blue Heart Campaign. By wearing the Blue Heart everyone can show their support and express their solidarity with trafficking victims.
2. Inform yourself by downloading the brochure on this year's theme and on UNODC's work on human trafficking.
3. If you see something, say something. Call the National Human Trafficking Resource Center Hotline at (888) 373-7888 if you notice any of the signs of trafficking.
4. Donate to the UN Voluntary Trust Fund for Victims of Human Trafficking. The UN Trust Fund for Victims of Trafficking in Persons provides aid and protection to victims of trafficking by identifying vulnerable victims, especially women and children, and offers essential services such as shelter, food, medical care, psycho-social support, legal aid, vocational training, access to justice and compensation.

5 Best Quick Fundraising Methods

5 Best Quick Fundraising Methods
by Joe Garecht - The Fundraising Authority

Quick fundraising usually isn’t good fundraising.  Most of the time, non-profits are well advised to spend time getting to know their prospects and donors, cultivating them, and executing a well-written fundraising plan to raise the money they need to operate.

Of course, there are times when every organization, no matter how well run, comes into financial difficulty, whether it be caused by a downturn in the economy, a major donor leaving the fold, or a need to rapidly expand your programs or physical plant.  When that time comes, your church, school, or charity will need to come up with a fundraising strategy – and fast.  Here are the 5 best quick fundraising methods you can use to help you get back on track:

1.  Reach Out to Current Donors

The people most likely to give money to your organization are those who have already done so.  That’s right… your best new donors are your current donors.  Figure out a way to go back to them to ask them to give again.  Hold an event, send out a mailing, make calls.  Tell your donors why you need them to be generous once again.

2.  Run a Mini-Campaign

You’ve heard of major fundraising campaigns, right?  This time, hold a mini-campaign.  Decide how much you need to raise, then structure it just like a major fundraising campaign.  Have a campaign chair and vice chairs, do a small booklet explaining your revenue needs on the office copy machine, hold a kick-off, and track your progress during this short-duration quick fundraising campaign.

3.  Pre-Sell Future Events and Activities

This is one of the best quick fundraising tactics.  If you’ve got a major fundraising event coming up later in the year, or some other activity like a walk-a-thon or raffle that you know about in advance, pre-sell tickets for a reduced rate or in return for additional recognition as a “charter” or “early” sponsor.  Raise money for your current needs using future events and activities.

4.  Hold Viral Fundraising Events

If you need money quick, chances are you won’t have time to pull together a major fundraising event.  Instead, talk to your best supporters and ask them to host small viral fundraising events on your behalf.  Using this strategy, you hold lots of little fundraising events in supporters’ homes, with them inviting their networks and paying for refreshments.  Lots of little events can add up quick.  If your group needs to raise a quick $10,000, all you need using this method is to find 10 people to each host a $1,000 event in their home… doable for most organizations.  And since the event hosts do most of the work, you can pull this off very quickly.

5.  Cut Costs

OK, so this isn’t a quick fundraising method per se, but cutting costs around the edges can really add to the bottom line.  Every dollar you cut from your expenses is a dollar you don’t have to raise.  Many organizations have been able to cut 2-5% from their budgets relatively painlessly, and without laying off staff.  Take a good hard look at your expenses and see what you can cut, at least for the short term.


To secure the funding needed for your project or event, it is important that your proposal stand out and meets the Sponsor’s requirements.  Once you have identified or connected to your Sponsor, make sure you are aware of the proper format for submitting your proposal.  Always follow that format.  It could make the difference in whether you receive the funding or not.  If you are not sure of the format, contact the Sponsor and request a sample copy. 

The template prepared for a sponsorship proposal should cover the points given below:

•  Executive Summary: It is the first point that needs to be addressed in a sponsorship proposal. This summarized information presents before the sponsor, precise points/reasons why they should support your organization.

•  Information about Company Background: This section need to be made interesting to read and present strong points about the benefactor company. The mission statement of the company can also be included in this section. The total content presented in this section should not go beyond one page.

•  Project Information: This section is crucial from the point of advertising the project/sponsorship program. The sponsor's point of view is given importance in this section. Benefits which can be availed by the sponsor are included in this section.

•  Market Information: The detailed information about the market collected by the benefactor should also be presented in this part of the document. It gives an idea to the sponsor as to which target audience he is going to be reached throughout the program. Information about audience needs to be provided in a detailed manner. The data should include income levels of the audience, their address details, educational information, etc.

•  Pitch: An important section of the proposal from the point of fixing a deal with the sponsor, it should state the price of sponsorship. The needs of benefactor should also be clearly presented in this section. Other details included are the period of project, due dates of payment and information about sponsorship hierarchy.

•  List of Benefits: A detailed account of all the benefits that a sponsor gets from the deal are provided in this section. Information about the different offers and sponsorship money associated with them are enlisted in this section. One should keep in mind that the benefits/offers made in section are subject to change. The follow-up document is the place where these modifications are reflected.

•  Plan for Marketing: Different measures undertaken by the benefactor to promote the program/project are enlisted in this part of the document.

•  Summary: It is the last and most important part of a sponsorship proposal template. The information of this section includes list of board of directors, current sponsors of the company, media clippings, etc.

The World is an Event

Maybe you just woke up from a 20-year sleep. You are in a foreign place. You have no friends, no family or no familiar faces in your immediate vicinity. To top it off your fish or plants died and your cat ran away. Now you really have no one to talk to get you through the day. You don't know anyone that can help you find a job or acquire clients to get your business off the ground. This may sound a bit extreme, but sometimes life's nasty curve balls make us feel lost or forlorn. We don't know where to begin to acquire that little jump-start to recharge our career or business. I have met many people with this dilemma.

The good news is the World is still alive and bustling with a flurry of events. It has people just waiting to meet you and help you achieve your goals. Take a minute. Look around and observe your surroundings. Is there an upcoming PTA meeting or flea market? Is the car show coming to town? Is there a conference or toy show at the convention center? Did you just get invited to a party? Somewhere in the world, there is an event happening everyday.

My business partner and I make it a point to regularly check the Jacob Javits Convention Center event calendar. Attending events has kept our businesses flourishing, as we continuously meet new people. Check out the world calendar of events at Eventguide Network. Their slogan is "What in the World are you going to do?".

You don't necessarily have to spend any money to get into even the most expensive events. I recently attended an technology event that cost $1,595.00, for free. Pick an event you wish to attend. Find out who is the organizer or promoter. Contact them and say the magic words "Are you looking for any volunteers for your event?". For a few hours of work, attend the event for free and meet new people. Don't forget to bring your business cards.

Now you are in a position to transform the unknown network (people you don't know) into your known network. "Follow up within 48 hours of meeting your new contacts", states Carl E. Reid, CSI.

We are always looking for people to help out at our events. Are you ready to jump-start your career or business? The world is waiting for you to attend its events. Don't go back to sleep. If you snooze, you lose.
