He who has never denied himself for the sake of giving, has but glanced at the joys of charity.– Anne Swetchine

Runway Travel Co. makes a difference by contributing to organizations that make the difference. There are several organizations that are near and dear to our hearts. It is our pleasure to support these nonprofits. Travel is a luxury many can’t afford. That’s why it is so important to us to give back.

Feeling especially blessed this holiday season, the Runway Travel staff spent an afternoon volunteering preparing meals for a homeless shelter in DC.

Runway Travel Co. – Kiva (Microfinance Company) is a digital marketplace where individuals can lend as little as $25 to create opportunity for people around the world. More than 1.7 billion people around the world are unbanked and can’t access the financial services they need. Kiva is an international nonprofit, with a mission to expand financial access to help underserved communities thrive. They do this by crowdfunding loans and unlocking capital for the underserved, improving the quality and cost of financial services, and addressing the underlying barriers to financial access around the world. Through Kiva’s work, students can pay for tuition, women can start businesses, farmers are able to invest in equipment and families can afford needed emergency care. Runway Travel is proud to make a monthly donation.


Jessica Griscavage –  Susan G. Komen and A Forever HomeJessica Griscavage with dog Ginger

Like Jennifer Dennis, our mom is a two time breast cancer survivor and also two of my closest friends have battled it (one has battled it twice). This is something sisters should not have in common! Also, a Forever Home which is a local rescue foundation where I rescued my sweet girl Ginger who brings peace and calm to my life every day. She is the best co-worker I could ever ask for and I don’t know what I would do without her.


Jennifer Waigand – The Ocean Cleanup

The Ocean Cleanup develops technology to extract plastic pollution from the oceans, as well as capture it in rivers before it can reach the ocean. Beautiful water is at the heart of so many of the world’s most special destinations, and we need to protect that water, our oceans and rivers, for the health of our planet most importantly. I love that The Ocean Cleanup has been taking actual action to remove plastic in the ocean through engineered solutions working today.  


Mariah Jardine – Alzheimer’s Association 

Alzheimer’s is a deteriorating brain disease that is caused by complex brain changes following cell damage. As Alzheimer’s advances, symptoms get more severe and include disorientation, confusion and behavior changes. An estimated 6.7 million Americans age 65 and older are living with Alzheimer’s dementia and there currently is no cure for the disease. Even though most people with Alzheimer’s are 65 and older, approximately 200,000 Americans under 65 are living with younger-onset Alzheimer’s disease. Runway Travel is donating to help grow philanthropic support for Alzheimer’s research, which is important for finding new treatments to stop, slow and prevent Alzheimer’s disease.


Amanda Taylor – Lovable PawsAmanda Taylor with her dog

Lovable Paws Rescue is an organization dedicated to reducing overpopulation, abuse and neglect of unwanted dogs.  Lovable Paws Rescue and Sanctuary is run by volunteers and works to save dogs’ lives from the streets and kill shelters.  Lovable Paws gives them medical attention and love and then helps to find them forever homes.  This organization holds a special place in my heart because this is where we found our Sammy.  The stories continue to amaze me every day and I wish I could do more to help these dogs.


Jennifer Dennis – Susan G. Komen

My Mom is a two-time breast cancer survivor and two of my closest friends have battled it. Owner Jessica Griscavage, also has two dear friends that have had this horrible disease. Breast Cancer affects 1 in 8 women, that’s a staggering statistic that crosses all races and socioeconomic classes. Susan G Komen’s mission is to save lives by meeting critical needs and investing in research to prevent and cure cancer. This organization offers tremendous support for patients and caregivers in addition to financial assistance.


Rachel Amatuzzi – Amnesty International
