Do Good Work, Stay In Nice Places

Imagine with me a world where first the class cabin is reserved for society’s saints. Don’t say it could never happen. Social revolts can come from anywhere at any time. And the impetus to reward the better among us is already apparent.
Take Sage Hospitality’s “Give A Day, Get A Night” promotion, where people who volunteer at qualifying non-profit organizations can stay for free, or a reduced rate, at 53 Sage hotels around the U.S., including The Nines in Portland.
According to USA TODAY, The Savoy Suites Hotel and The Carlyle Suites Hotel in Washington, DC also have a “Serve America and Stay in D.C.” program that gives guests 50% off for five hours of proven volunteer work.

I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. Today—after working for seven agencies in five states—I am head of brand strategy and creative at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.
