Carnival Cruise Lines already donated $2 million for Hurricane Harvey relief. Now they’ve announced that alongside the Miami HEAT Charitable Fund and the Micky and Madeleine Arison Family Foundation they will be pledging an additional $10 for Hurricane Irma relief.
Arnold Donald, the CEO of Carnival Corporation, spoke out about the support in a press release.
“We are committed to supporting relief efforts where Hurricane Irma left an impact in Florida and the Caribbean, starting with immediate humanitarian needs and recovery efforts that will have a meaningful impact.”
Together the companies will be raising money to donate as well as matching those funds. Additionally, eleven of Carnival’s ships have been delivering goods to areas that need the help, such as Grand Turk, St. Maarten, St. Thomas, Antigua-Barbuda, and the Bahamas.
