Fabulous Cruise, Fantastic Cause

You can “cruise for the kids” with Global Connections and Carnival Cruise Lines! Global Discovery Vacations is offering two Carnival Cruises (Alaska and the Caribbean) that not only make a fabulous vacation getaway, but also benefit Children’s Mercy, one of the leading children’s hospitals in the nation.

Global Connections, Inc. is committed to supporting ongoing philanthropic endeavors. When the travel experts at Global Connections discovered Carnival Cruise Line’s Cruising for Charity program, they knew they found the perfect way to combine travel with philanthropic giving.

Through this program, Global Connections was able to select the cruises and select the cause. Now for the amazing part – Carnival will contribute a percentage of each cabin sold through Global Discovery Vacations to Children’s Mercy.


“We deeply appreciate when organizations are able to find ways to support Children’s Mercy that fit within the scope of their field and expertise.

“As a non-profit hospital, we rely on the generous support of community members, like Global Connections, to help us provide the highest level of care to every child who walks through our doors. Funds raised through these cruises give us the ability to respond quickly to patients, deliver the best care possible and make research discoveries that will change children’s lives.” –Erica Austin, Children’s Mercy Manager of Philanthropic Community Engagement and Events.
