TPG's promise

The Points Guy is committed to using travel as a positive force to bring people together, educate communities, and support initiatives to promote equality and opportunity around the globe.

We believe that...

Travel has the power to change the world. It's about more than going on vacation. It's about breaking down cultural barriers, understanding how history impacts society, seeing the beauty in our differences and understanding diverse communities and traditions.

We partner with...

Organizations that educate the next generation of leaders and transport migrants and marginalized people to safety — giving new opportunities to deserving individuals. We harness our resources and expertise to raise and donate funds and miles for these causes and engage our community throughout the year.

Organizations we support

Our current campaign

TPG supports Hurricane Relief

We are donating $5,000 to each of the following organizations for their dedication and support to relief efforts from Hurricane Ian and Fiona: Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida, Heart of Florida United Way, Hispanic Federation, Global Giving's Hurricane Fiona Relief Fund, and Airlink.

Rainbow Railroad

Who are they?

Rainbow Railroad helps members of the LGBTQI community get out of dangerous environments and to a safe place that's far from state-enabled violence, persecution, and murder. In 2022, The Points Guy partnered with Chase Sapphire to create a Prizeo Campaign supporting Rainbow Railroad, raising over $140,000.

What impact has TPG made?

TPG has helped save over 125 LGBTQIA+ lives and donated/raised over 1 million dollars.

Peace Jam

Who are they?

PeaceJam is an award-winning international peace education program that provides year-round leadership training for motivated individuals aged 5-25.

What impact has TPG made?

Since 2016, TPG has sponsored PeaceJam youth conferences and programming in Guatemala, Ghana, Liberia and South Africa — impacting thousands of young lives.

Every year, The Points Guy team mentors youth alongside Nobel Peace Prize winners (like Jody Williams, Leymah Gbowee, Betty Williams, Kailash Satyarthi and Rigoberta Menchú) and participates in service projects and workshops with the young leaders.

In 2018, the TPG Global Impact Youth Fellowship was created to provide outstanding young changemakers the opportunity to advance their education and continue their mission for peace. As of 2022, we financially support and mentor 21 TPG Fellows from 4 countries: Liberia, Ghana, South Africa and Guatemala.

Miles4Migrants

Who are they?

Miles4Migrants uses frequent flyer miles, credit card points and cash to help people impacted by war, persecution or disaster start a new beginning in a new home.

What impact has TPG made?

We have raised over a dozen million miles for Afghanistan and Ukrainian refugees in the last year with the help of our sister company, Lonely Planet. These miles have helped transport over 1000 individuals.
