Giving Our Best
Boomerang Escapes is proud to support communities in the Memphis Area and around the world. Our new Give Back Fundraising Program is another way to be involved within the community and to support non-profit organizations in your area and beyond.
The Australian Koala Foundation (AKF) is the principal non-profit, non-government organisation dedicated to the conservation and effective management of the wild koala and its habitat.
Boomerang Escapes supports this organization via koala adoptions and gift purchases. As part of our first year celebration, we adopted our first koala in December 2013 with plans to continue to adopt another each year.
If you are passionate about the survival of these animals in their habitats, there are many ways to to provide support such as adopting, straight donation, or planting a tree online. Please click through to their site to discover more ways that you can help.
The Tennessee Safari Park's mission is to create and provide educational activities and environments for the community and abroad to bring appreciation and conservational awareness for all living things. We aim to gain long term sustainability for our world's rare and endangered flora and fauna in their natural environment.
Boomerang Escapes is happy to be the proud sponsor of the newly planned Australia section scheduled to open in 2015. Each month we donate a portion of our profits from your trips to provide the funding for this new exhibit. We also help by volunteering at such annual events as their Fall Festival
You are already helping each time you book with us. To get more involved visit the park website to find out about donations, volunteering and internships.
The mission of New Day Children’s Theatre is to provide on-going quality arts experiences through theatre that is of, by and for kids ages 5-18. New Day provides a nurturing environment where children come together to build relationships and develop character through mutual respect and teamwork. It is a safe place to express their creativity. At New Day the kids participate in all aspects of the production, from acting to lights to taking tickets at the door. The process of the theatrical experience is as important as the product and equal weight is placed on education and fun. Whether center-stage or behind the scenes, and regardless of experience level, there is a place for every child at New Day.
The theatre holds a special place for Boomerang Escapes as the owner's youngest daughter has particpated in a variety of prodcutions in the past several years. New Day has been issued a challenge from one of their generous donors. Their challenge is to raise $15,000, in three-year commitments from their New Day family and friends. If they do this, their donor will match the donations with $10,000 per year for the next three years. Their new campaign is called "Triple Dog Dare Ya!". To help New Day reach it's goals, Boomerang Escapes in additon to our normal donations will now give travelers the chance to increase our committment. Each time you book a vacation package and mention New Day Children's Theatre Triple Dog Dare Ya, we will donate 5% of your vacation package nett profits to the theatre. Make your vacation dollars go farther.

Pack for a Purpose® is a 501C-3 organization which provides travelers, with the information they need to make an easy, yet meaningful contribution to the local community at their destination. Whether on a vacation, honeymoon or traveling with friends and family, by visiting http://www.packforapurpose.org you can add value to your next holiday by taking supplies (up to 5 lbs) requested by a local community project and just dropping them off at the front desk at your resort.
At Pack for a Purpose® our goal is to assist travelers who want to make a meaningful contribution to help meet the needs of the people and places they visit or who simply want to expand their generosity beyond their own communities. The supply lists for destinations and participating hotels/resorts which are listed on our website are provided directly by the local community-based projects that will receive them, enabling travelers to make informed decisions and bring items which meet the needs of the people who will be using them.
The Reading Road Trip through Sandals Foundation gives travelers the opportunity to take a journey to help. It is available to all guests staying at Sandals, Beaches and Grand Pineapple resorts. It is a 2-hour trip that takes you on a journey to one of the schools adopted by the foundation. Often a school your supplies from Pack for a Purpose have gone to. Facilitators are there to guide you through working with the children during your morning adventure with the children. Nothing is more rewarding!
