Review for Sandals Foundation Inc, Miami, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been lucky enough to have stayed at a few of the Sandals and Beaches properties and have always been impressed with my limited interaction with the people of the Caribbean islands. My brother, Peter Blum, raves about the work done by Sandals Foundation. As a teacher approaching retirement, I have caught his enthusiasm and avidly follow the foundation's work in education. One of my students struggled to find a topic to present to the scholarship committee for a service related topic. I pulled up the Foundation’s Facebook page and let him scroll down and just “look” at the pictures. An incredible essay asking for the funds to send books on to the Caribbean was the result. There is no question that the work this Foundation does is authentic.

Education and travel are my passions. As a result, I am looking forward to “packing for a purpose” and developing a deeper interaction with the educators of the Islands. Just as Adam Stuart discussed at the Students Colloquium in New York, I want to “choose my own future” and increase my own “optimism” by developing a personal interaction with the children of the Caribbean. Kudos to Sandals Resorts for looking beyond their own profits and striving to empower the lives of those less fortunate through the work of the Sandals Foundations.
