customers to donate. I just got an email from Marriott saying how concerned they are about victims of Sandy and telling me how I can donate points to help these people. Yes, I know there are lots of ways I can help. If Marriott wants to help why don't they send me an email telling me how many room/nights they have donated to those in need. Somehow this just strikes me wrong, many other programs have asked people to help and offered (maybe just a token, but still) a small incentive for doing so. Sending a message that you care, your employees are donating, giving blood, but you offer nothing from the organizati9on.... but ask your customers to demonstrate care without even a token from your own corporate coffers just doesn't ring true. "Our hearts go out to the millions of people and the communities impacted by Hurricane Sandy. Marriott® is an ongoing supporter of the American Red Cross and we are designating part of our contributions to the American Red Cross International Response Fund toward Hurricane Sandy relief. Our associates are also supporting our efforts through their own donations, including participation in blood drives. As a Marriott Rewards® member, you can donate points online to support the American Red Cross disaster relief efforts. Each year, members give millions of points to charitable organizations, making a significant contribution to the global community." Together, we can show our support during this critical time. I thank you for your consideration. "
