November 11, 2014 // Franchising.com // PARSIPPANY, N.J. – This November, the Days Inn® hotel brand is launching two promotions designed to honor those who have served our country, giving away seven getaways to deserving veterans - including active service members - while also donating up to one million Wyndham Rewards® points to Fisher House and its Hotels for Heroes program.
Now through December 30, 2014, loved ones can enter a veteran at www.daysinn.com/heroes for a getaway through the Days Inn "My Hero" contest. Friends and family will share a veteran’s story and a photo, and each week through the end of the contest, Days Inn will choose one veteran, based on the story shared, to receive a six night, seven day stay at the U.S. or Canadian Days Inn hotel or Armed Forces Vacation Club® resort of their choice. Each winner will also receive a $1,000 Wyndham Rewards Prepaid Visa® card. For official rules, visit www.daysinn.com/heroes.
"We greatly appreciate what our service women and men do for us every day and we are proud to honor them in every way we can," said Clyde Guinn, Days Inn brand president. "We’re delighted to give these heroes something in return for their generosity and courage and we are excited to hear and share their stories."
In coordination with the contest, through the end of the year, Days Inn will be donating 10 Wyndham Rewards points - up to one million points - to Hotels for Heroes for every hotel reservation made at www.daysinn.com. Hotels for Heroes is a program created by the Fisher House Foundation that provides hotel rooms to the families of wounded, injured, and ill military service members who are undergoing treatment at authorized medical centers.
AFVC is one of the largest military vacation clubs in the world, offering more than 100,000 weeks of inventory worldwide annually. All active, reserve, guard, veteran and retired military personnel can join this membership program for free at www.AFVClub.com/Welcome.
