Como Hotels, MasterCard launch fourth Purchase with Purpose programme
Singapore, September 25, 2013
A DONATION of US$25 will be made to a range of community projects each time guests use a MasterCard card to settle a transaction at any Como Hotels and Resorts property, under the fourth edition of the Purchase with Purpose programme.
Available at any Como property worldwide between October 1 and December 31, the programme allows travels to give back to the local community. Purchase with Purpose has raised a total of US$115,580 in total so far, contributing to communities in Asia, the UK and the Caribbean.
For instance, guests staying at the Uma by Como, Ubud, Bali hotel can support Yayasan Kemanusiaan Ibu Pertiwi, which runs career skills workshops for disadvantaged youth, when they pay by MasterCard.
Meanwhile, guests at Uma by Como, Punahkha, Bhutan will see their US$25 go to the Loden Foundation to finance micro-loans for women entrepreneurs.
