Sandals Select Rewards, the loyalty program of Sandals Resorts and Beaches Resorts, has announced a new way for its members to earn Sandals Select Rewards Points through a volunteer tourism program offered by the Sandals Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Sandals Resorts International.
The program, dubbed, "Sandprints by Sandals Select Rewards," offers a meaningful way for members to earn rewards by assisting in literacy improvement efforts in Caribbean communities.
The new program is offered in association with The Sandals Foundation’s Reading Road Trip initiative and aims to improve the listening, reading, and comprehension skills of local children across the Caribbean. Members who participate in the Reading Road Trip program will be granted up to 2,000 Sandals Select Rewards bonus points by donating their time at local schools to engage small groups of children between the ages of 5-7 in active reading strategies.
Although Sandals Select already offers returning guests various ways to earn rewards, this is the first time they can earn points by giving back to the islands they visit year after year. Members who are repeat guests of Sandals Resorts, Beaches Resorts, and Grand Pineapple Beach Resorts can now feel rewarded, not just with the points they earn, but also from the satisfaction of helping the communities that have become their home away from home.
Guests are also encouraged to get involved in the literacy improvement initiative by bringing along a new or gently used book to donate to the local school’s library.
To participate in the Sandprints program, Sandals Select Members can pre-book by visiting www.islandroutes.com.
