How to Donate Your Miles and Points to Support Hurricane Dorian Victims

I know watching the news stories about the devastation in the Bahamas caused by Hurricane Dorian can make you feel helpless. After a while, you just feel numb and you want to do something, do anything, but don’t know how you can help.

Luckily, most of the airline and hotel programs are making it easy to contribute in any way you can.

Even better, you can donate points if you have more of them than you know what to do with.

The Radisson Resort Orlando-Celebration To Become A Marriott Hotel

Radisson hotels don’t have the best reputation in the United States and are generally lower level properties that tend to be past their prime. As a part of the Carlson Hotel Group, the Radisson hotel chain has quite a long history dating back to the first hotel in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 1909. Currently, the chain is part of the Radisson Hotel Group (recently renamed from the Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group). One of the biggest Radisson Hotels was right in our backyard, the Radisson Resort Orlando Celebration. This is a huge hotel complex is located just outside Walt Disney World property on RT-192 in Kissimmee, Florida.
