Special Invitation to Join a Humanitarian Tour to Cuba
You might have heard about the recent changes in U.S. law easing restrictions on travel to Cuba for certain types of tourism programs. Friendly Planet is now offering a new series of Humanitarian Relief tours to Cuba beginning in October of 2011.
We have organized several such missions to Cuba over the past year,coordinated through a humanitarian organization officially licensed by the United States Department of Treasury.
They were a great success, and interest far exceeded the available space on these trips. As a result, we have expanded our series of departures and can now make them available to all of our travelers who wish to participate in this special project.
I am very pleased to invite you to join us on one of our upcoming departures.Through these humanitarian tours, you'll be directly helping people in great need, especially young children by bringing medical supplies and educational materials with you, which are in very short supply in Cuba.
In addition, each tour will provide an incredible opportunity to interact with the local people one-on-one. Cuba is so much more than antique cars, salsa music and cigars, and you'll understand why Ernest Hemingway made it his home once you have visited this fascinating country, only 90 miles off our shores.

A recent Friendly Planet group overlooking Havana Friendly Planet has a long history of supporting humanitarian causes. Over the years, we've been involved in various philanthropic projects, and have arranged travel for groups engaging in humanitarian activities in countries around the world. We are excited to add Cuba to this growing list, and I hope you will take advantage of one of these tours to join us in this very special opportunity to see, learn and serve.
Call us at 800-555-5765 to learn more about participating in this special humanitarian mission, or about organizing your own private departure for a group of 15 or more. Space is quite limited. If you'd like to join us on one of these
unique tours, I urge you to contact us without delay.
