The holiday season should be a time for helping those in need. That is why Hawaii is inviting travelers to come to the islands to slow down, reconnect, and ultimately give back in exchange for a free night in a hotel. If you're looking for a worthwhile winter vacation or know a real Grinch that needs a little spark of joy, this might just be the perfect trip.
Caring for Hawaii
Hawaii's goal is to inspire mindful travel and to do so they have rounded up a stellar cast of industry partners and volunteer organizations across the islands to participate in an initiative called Mālama Hawai‘i—or care for Hawaii—that encourages visitors to leave paradise better than when they arrived.
There is a wide range of volunteer projects that Hawaii offers, including reforestation and tree planting, ocean reef preservation, self-directed beach cleanups, and creating quilts for the elderly.
Give Back, Get Back
All that good karma will earn you a free extra night from participating hotels, including the Hyatt Regency Maui Resort and Spa and the Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea. Click here for more details on how to earn your free night and to see a full list of participating hotels and .
Even better, Alaska Airlines will plant a tree for every flight to the islands of Hawaii through the end of the year. They estimate that will be around 900 trees! This means, if you fly Alaska Airlines to Hawaii, even your flight will be giving something back.
Hawaii is currently open to tourists who can skip the 14-day mandatory quarantine if they show a negative COVID test.
