South Miami Beach, FL, December 10, 2001 --

$50,000 was donated to the Travelers Conservation Foundation (TCF) by Safe Passage International, Trip Mate Insurance Agency, and Ward Insurance Network at the annual United States Tour Operators Association (USTOA) convention. The donation, one of the largest ever received by the TCF, was made on behalf of our clients who provide tours and cruises to popular destinations in the U.S. and around the world. Safe Passage International, a leading travel insurance broker, and home of the Heritage Conservation Program, uses travel insurance sales to generate funds for conservation projects that are important to the travel industry.

Safe Passage was instrumental in arranging for the $50,000 donation to the TCF. The funds will be used to further the TCF's goal to "Invest strategically in globally significant sites with the collective resources of the nation's major tour operators, the suppliers of their travel products, their customers and their friends."
