OpenTable Diners Can Donate Points to Help End Childhood Hunger this Holiday Season
(6 months ago)
SAN FRANCISCO: OpenTable, the world's leading provider of online restaurant reservations and part of The Priceline Group (NASDAQ: PCLN), today announced that in the spirit of the holiday season, OpenTable diners will have the opportunity to donate their OpenTable dining points to No Kid Hungry, a campaign of the national anti-hunger organization Share Our Strength.
Through OpenTable's relationship with longtime non-profit partner Share Our Strength, points donations made beginning on Tuesday, November 28th through Monday, December 11th, will benefit the No Kid Hungry campaign, which provides nutritious meals to children struggling with hunger in America.
Every 100 points donated can provide a child in need with up to five healthy meals. To deepen the impact of this effort, OpenTable will match donations.
"While the holidays are a special time for dining with friends and family, we cannot forget about those who don't have that opportunity or know when they'll receive their next meal," said Scott Jampol, OpenTable Senior Vice President of Marketing. "We, along with our restaurant partners, hope diners embrace this opportunity so that together we can make a real difference in supporting hungry children this holiday season."
To donate points, diners can simply visit their profile page to view their points and select "donate my points." From there, they'll have an opportunity to donate a portion or all of their points in support of No Kid Hungry. OpenTable will match the first 100,000 meals donated by diners.
