The Points Guy Announces $100,000USD Challenge to Readers & Rainbow Railroad Supporters
This month, Rainbow Railroad has launched its first-ever Corporate Pride Leadership Campaign, featuring over a dozen different Corporate Leaders who have made a meaningful investment in Rainbow Railroad’s mission this Pride.
Rainbow Railroad is excited to share that The Points Guy has issued a $100,000 match challenge to its readers and the entire Rainbow Railroad community. Thanks to this generous challenge, TPG will match every donation made to Rainbow Railroad up to $100,000 (USD) made by individual or corporate supporters during Pride.
TPG is Rainbow Railroad’s leading donor to this initiative in the United States this Pride and is Rainbow Railroad’s largest U.S.A.-based corporate supporter. This $100,000 match contribution represents only the most recent generous contribution over the history of our partnership.
Over the coming days and weeks, Rainbow Railroad will profile its other leading partners this Pride, generously contributing to our critical mission of helping LGBTQI+ people escape from persecution and violence around the world.
“Our mission is powered by partners like The Points Guy – and we are so grateful to them for this landmark contribution to kick of Pride season.” Said Dane Bland, Director of Philanthropy. “Please give generously to help us meet their match!”
“It’s critical for all of us to do our part to protect the most vulnerable members of the LGBTQ+ community. I’m proud to support Rainbow Railroad because their critical work literally saves lives and they make a huge impact with the resources they have.” said Brian Kelly, founder & CEO of TPG.
The Points Guy (TPG) has been publishing hands-on advice to help readers maximize their travel experiences since the site debuted in June 2010. What started out as a points-and-miles blog by founder and CEO Brian Kelly has evolved into a lifestyle media brand with 10 million unique visitors a month and a social media audience of over 3 million across Instagram, YouTube, Facebook, Pinterest, LinkedIn and Twitter. The Points Guy and Brian Kelly together use their platform to profile Rainbow Railroad, raise critical funds for our mission, and are one of our largest donors in our organization’s history.
