Secrets Resorts & Spas are deeply saddened by the tragic loss of life and extensive earthquake damage to the people of Haiti, neighbors of the Dominican Republic.
Making a monetary donation is easier than it’s ever been.
Simply Text “HAITI” to 90999 to donate $10, to the American Red Cross Relief Effort and when prompted, hit “YES” to confirm the donation.
While most organizations, including the Red Cross, are citing monetary donations as the primary need for the victims, guests heading to the Dominican Republic in the near future can contribute in a more unique way by bringing medical supplies from the list below. Guests can donate any of these items at our resorts which will then be delivered to local relief centers, taken to Haiti and given directly to those in need.
- Oral rehydration
- Analgesics (acetaminophen, ibuprofen)
- Elastic Bandage
- Tetanus toxoid
- Ganmaglobulina human tetanus
- Antibiotics (amoxicifilina, in suspension and / or tablets)
- Antiseptics (Betadine type or chlorhexidine soap type)
- Sanitary napkins
We are extremely grateful that the Dominican Republic did not experience any damage from the earthquake. All resorts within Zoëtry Wellness & Spa Resorts, Secrets Resorts & Spas and Dreams Resorts & Spas brands are operating at 100%. All of the Dominican Republic’s international airports are open and receiving flights on their normal schedules. We hope that future guests will join us in our efforts to donate and contribute to Haiti during this time of rebuilding and development.
My wife and I made separate donations today through the Spirit Airlines website. Spirit Airlines is doing something interesting as an incentive to donate.
If you sign up for their Free Spirit program, and make a donation to the Red Cross, they will donate 5000 miles to your mileage account – enough for a flight. It is free to join, and provides a good, safe way to donate.
