Purchase For A Purpose With COMO Hotels and Mastercard

By  |  0 Comments

From October to December 2016, guests at COMO Hotels and Resorts can make a lasting difference in local communities by simply using their Mastercard credit cards to settle any hotel bills.

Guests at any of COMO Hotels and Resorts’ 13 hotels across Asia, Australia, Europe, America and the Caribbean can contribute to a good cause with every Mastercard transaction made at COMO.

Running from 1 October to 31 December 2016, every Mastercard transaction made at COMO will mean a USD 25 donation through Mastercard’s Purchase with Purpose programme. These donations will benefit community organisations and schools in each destination. Guests pay nothing extra and are able to leave with the satisfaction of having made a lasting difference in the local communities within their hotel of stay.

This year marks the seventh year of global partnership between COMO and Mastercard, which through this initiative, has raised over USD 280,000 for more than 6,000 beneficiaries to date. The funds raised have been used to support programmes such as hospitality training for high school students and underserved women in Thailand; financial and educational support to students and entrepreneurs in Bali and Bhutan; as well as life and vocational skills training for youth in London, the Maldives and the Turks and Caicos Islands.
