Recently, we ran a news story on former travel agent Kirsty Diaso’s son, Andre, who was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy just before his first birthday.
Tomorrow, Saturday 10 Feb, is Andre’s second birthday and the Diaso family are holding a fundraiser to allow them to take Andre to a specialist paediatric centre where he can receive the support he requires. All funds raised go to Andre’s Tree Of Hope account, which is a registered charity that pays Andre’s healthcare bills directly from all monies raised.
Kirsty and the Diaso family are asking everyone to wear read, Andre’s favourite colour, and to donate €/£1 to the fundraiser – https://bit.ly/47SrUUM At the time of publishing, the fund has received 36% (£3,671) of its £10,000 target.
The ITTN team would like to wish Andre a very Happy Birthday and we will be making our donation later today!
Let’s do what the travel industry does best and support a colleague during their time of need. If you can, please encourage your team to wear red tomorrow and make a donation, no matter the size, to Andre’s fundraiser.
