Airport hospitality group OTG and UNICEF USA (United Nations Children’s Fund) today announced an initiative to allow travelers to donate to Ukraine relief directly from the airport iPads as well as OTG’s mobile ordering technology. OTG will match up to $100,000 in donations that are made from its airport technology.
OTG manages hundreds of dining and retail locations in airports across the country including Newark, LaGuardia, JFK, Philadelphia, Minneapolis-Saint Paul International Airport, and George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston. This campaign will allow passengers to make a UNICEF donation when ordering or when paying the bill on the airport’s iPad ordering system or through the OTG mobile ordering technology. The donation will go directly to UNICEF.
UNICEF is working with partners in the war zone to reach vulnerable children and families with essential services including healthcare needs, education, protection, clean water, sanitation, and other life-saving supplies.
“We are all watching the situation unfold in Ukraine. We wanted to make it easier for our customers to help those in need, and that’s why we started this initiative,” said Rick Blatstein, Founder and CEO of OTG. “UNICEF has been working day and night staffing essential programs in Ukraine and neighboring countries, delivering essential provisions, and working with women and children who are still being evacuated.
UNICEF has an incredible operation, and we are proud to support them by making it easier for our customers to donate and by donating ourselves.”
