5 Ways to Stand up for Civil Rights and Save Lives

Enough is Enough

To our SITE SoCal Community and Beyond,

It is important that we take a moment to address the tragedy our country is facing and the deep wounds inflicted on our Black community.

We see your pain, and we stand with you against injustice and racism. We stand with you as we create a better world. We stand with you for justice for George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and far too many others.

We’ve seen corporations and organizations around the world step up to the plate these last few days like never before. And we, as a chapter of travel professionals with a global platform, must speak up.

We won’t be silent. We will do better. We will lead by example. We will be part of the solution.

Below is a list of ways that you can get involved in what's going on. From donations to peaceful protests, or simply signing a petition, we urge you to take part in this crucial part of history as we come together to turn the tide.

Holiday Traditions around the World

Holiday Traditions around the World

Best wishes from Platinum DMC Collection and all of our DMCs for a joyous holiday season and a Happy New Year.

italyThe most traditional Christmas sweet in Italy is Panettone. It originated when a lowly kitchen servant named Toni burned his masters Christmas cake. He hurriedly mixed up some yeast with flour, eggs, sugar, raisins and candied fruit. The result was a great success and the family named it “Pan de Toni”, to honor its creator.

In Argentina homes are decorated and the Christmas tree put up on December 8th, the Maria Virgin Day. Decorations remain until January 6th, the Three Kings Day, when the children put their shoes outside to receive presents from the Three Kings.

In Australia, Christmas falls in the middle of summer. The traditional Christmas meal is typically followed by a family cricket match, either in the backyard or at the beach.
