You can’t stay forever, but Backland offers you to stay for good. Now through the holidays (December 31 2023) Backland has partnered with Heal to help refugee families. When you book a two or more night stay, Backland will donate 2% of the proceeds to Heal – A New Beginning for Refugees.
Heal is a very small volunteer family-run 501(c)3 charity started in 2022 by Brooke and Spencer Cutler. To date they have helped settle five refugee families from Ukraine, Afghanistan and Venezuela. These refugees are fully vetted and approved by US Customs and Immigration.
The stories from these families are both heartbreaking and full of great hope. One family of 6 woke up to their town being bombed. After hiding in the basement for 3 weeks they narrowly escaped before their home and all their possessions were destroyed.
Another family tragically lost their husband/father in an attack as they fled to the US. All have had the homes and the lives they once knew taken away, leaving them no choice but to flee and seek safety in a distant and unfamiliar land.
The goal of Heal is to help refugee families travel to the US, and find the housing, transportation, work, and social support needed to become self-sufficient in their new home.
To take advantage of this offer and participate in helping refugees, book at least a 2-night stay before 12/31/2023 and enter promo code: STAYFORGOOD
