As a company that cares deeply about the communities we serve, Carnival stands in solidarity and support for our brothers and sisters throughout the Caribbean, a region that holds a special place in our hearts. We are proud to join with our destination partners to assist residents and communities following Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria, while providing financial support to a wide variety of relief organizations and doing our part to help the region in its recovery. Your donation will be sent directly to UNICEF USA which is mobilizing to get immediate, critical support to children and families throughout the Caribbean with 100 percent of every dollar spent through this program assisting children.
Carnival Cruise Line and our parent company Carnival Corporation are providing extensive and wide-ranging relief to those affected by these storms, with ships delivering critical supplies to impacted islands, including food, water, and other essential items, to assist residents throughout the region.
Carnival Corporation, Miami HEAT Charitable Fund and the foundation of Carnival Corporation Chairman Micky Arison and his wife Madeleine (the Micky and Madeleine Arison Family Foundation) have pledged up to $10 million in funding and in-kind support in Florida and throughout the Caribbean following Hurricane Irma. An immediate donation by the Micky and Madeleine Arison Foundation of $2.5 million will benefit Direct Relief, UNICEF and the United Way to support the most timely and urgent relief needs. Carnival is also donating proceeds from ticket sales for two recent Carnival LIVE performances by comedian Chris Tucker aboard Carnival Liberty and Carnival Breeze to hurricane relief.
In addition, for Hurricane Harvey, Carnival Cruise Line, Carnival Corporation and the Micky and Madeleine Arison Family Foundation have already donated $2 million toward relief organizations that are providing food, water, medicine, shelter and other basic necessities to residents in affected communities.
Our thoughts continue to be with everyone affected by these storms.
