Stay For Good

A Charitable Giving Program by Carolina Mornings Vacation Program


Stay For Good Program 
 
Carolina Mornings is committed to giving back to our communities both near and far! We have created our "Stay For Good!" program to help us meet our goal of being responsible citizens through the success of our business.
 
Each year, Carolina Mornings will donate a small portion from every reservation that stayed with us. These donations are provided quarterly and are split between three charitable causes. Best of all, our loyal guests get to vote for which of the three charities they would most like to support!
  
 
What does this mean? 

We believe that a vacation in the mountains can be more than a gathering of loved ones - it can be a powerful way to give back to the surrounding community, and we've found that our guests feel the same way. The Stay For Good program was developed to create meaningful and positive differences on a national level, a state level, and a local, Western North Carolina level. When you stay with Carolina Mornings, you can rest easy knowing that not only will you experience the best version of your mountain vacation, but you will be directly and positively impacting the folks around you... and that's a great thing!

How can I participate?
 
Twice a year, every short-term vacation guest who stayed with us during the current period will receive an email inviting them to vote via an online survey. After all of the votes are tallied, the total donation amount for that quarter will be divided (according to the vote percentages) between the three organizations. Guests will receive a follow-up email after the donations have been made sharing the success for each of the organizations.

We are proud to be able to offer this program and to give back to our local and global community! We invite you to continue Staying For Good with Carolina Mornings, to help us change the world one night at a time.


Benefiting charities for 2020 are: 

Equal Justice Initiative
Equal Justice Initiative works with communities that have been marginalized by poverty and discouraged by unequal treatment. They are committed to changing the narrative about race in America. EJI produces groundbreaking reports, an award-winning wall calendar, and short films that explore our nation’s history of racial injustice, and they recently launched an ambitious national effort to create new spaces, markers, and memorials that address the legacy of slavery, lynching, and racial segregation, which shapes many issues today. 


Democracy North Carolina
Democracy North Carolina is a nonpartisan organization that uses research, organizing, and advocacy to increase voter participation, reduce the influence of big money in politics and achieve a government that is truly of the people, by the people and for the people. Democracy NC grew out of Democracy South which began as a project of the Institute for Southern Studies. For more than 20 years, they’ve taken on powerful industries and political leaders, regardless of party, and promoted reforms that expand public involvement in the political process.

Carolina Mornings Has Donated $5,826.00 to Charity!
 
With the help of our guests, Carolina Mornings donated a total of $5,826.00 split between three charities - The ALS Association, United Service Organizations, and Homeward Bound. 

Periods are counted beginning from January 1st to June 30th and July 1st to December 31st. Stays are counted by the date of departure, so a guest checking in June 30th and departing July 2nd would be placed in the July 1st to December 31st period.
 
The total amount donated reflects the life of the program through July 2020.
 
All records of this program are maintained in our downtown Asheville office location.
