    This Hotel Chain Is Giving Away Free (And Much-Deserved) Vacations To Essential Workers

    YOU get a vacation and YOU get a vacation!

    Right now it’s important to stay home and practice social distancing. We hope you’ll find our content entertaining, inspiring, or useful for a future trip.

    Right now, there are few people we're more grateful for than essential workers. While I'm laid up on my couch with snacks and Netflix, they are on the front lines keeping the world moving.

    I'm talking nurses, doctors, grocery store employees, and delivery drivers, to name a few.

    Some companies seem to agree, with many offering giveaways to essential workers to thank them for their service.

    Jet Blue is giving away thousands of roundtrip flights, BHLDN is gifting free wedding dresses, and Wyndham Hotels is offering instant gold status in their loyalty program.

    And when I heard about this resort chain offering 150 FREE vacations to essential workers and their families, I have to say, it warmed my cold, isolated heart a bit.

    Karisma Hotels and Resorts has numerous properties in Latin America, and winners will get the choice between four luxurious resorts when it's time to plan their post-lockdown vacay.

    Like this resort in Playa del Carmen, Mexico:

    Or this one in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, which is also a Nickelodeon resort and therefore very family friendly.

    Each package includes 24-hour room service, a full-service concierge, and live music shows, plus access to fitness centers, yoga classes, and spas.

    People can nominate the essential workers in their lives (or themselves if they fit the criteria!) to win one of the coveted four-night, five-day stays.

    So nominate away! The beach is calling...
