Travel Leaders Group, Vacation’s parent company, launched a major initiative entitled “Travel Helps The Bahamas” to help the Bahamas recover from Hurricane Dorian. This initiative's goal was to encourage travel to the 14 islands that were not affected by the storm. TLG also raised $36,000 to be donated to Ranfurly Homes for Children in Nassau, which became safe harbor and home for many children who were displaced by the destruction.
