Charity Pro Travel is a membership based international travel site that donates commissions to both selected and consumer chosen charities.
In 2008, eleven year old Megan Maloney had an “aha moment” after losing three family members to cancer. Megan’s father was about to launch an online travel business, which was relatively new to the industry, when Megan came to him with a revelation. “Dad, wouldn’t it be cool to tie raising money for charity with your travel business?” That is all it took. After some quick research and redevelopment, Charity Pro Travel was founded just in time to partner with the brand new charity Stand Up 2 Cancer. As word spread, Megan was quickly contacted by local and national media, giving interviews to the likes of CNN, the Ellen Show. Her story and picture even made the front page of the Travel/Entertainment section of the Los Angeles Times. Soon she was off to L.A. for the live broadcast of the first Stand Up 2 Cancer telethon featuring many of the world’s biggest stars. Unfortunately, shortly after the launch, the economy took a turn and travel drastically plummeted. Coupled with Megan back in school and restricted availability and participation, it led to the project being put on the shelf.
11 year old Megan Maloney stands up to Cancer:
Until now! Fast forward 2017, Megan, now 19, is a business/marketing student and has refueled her passion to find that cure and help other charities as well. Megan has teamed up with others who have a passion for philanthropy, like Keith Hudson, (father of pop star Katy Perry) as CEO, and Chief Technology Officer, Steve Hollaway.
Most importantly, Charity Pro Travel has aligned with the PRICELINE Partner Network to provide the best domestic and international travel experience available.
“Imagine every time you book travel, you are helping a charity. Why wouldn’t you use Charity Pro Travel?” Megan Maloney – Founder of Charity Pro Travel
