Local organization the Titi Conservation Alliance ( has started a new customer donation program for area hotels and rental communities. The new program, dubbed “Common Cents,” is mirrored after Hotel Parador’s “We Share” program, and adds an automatic donation of $1 per night’s stay to guests’ final bills. That money is then donated directly to local organizations to help strengthen their efforts for the community. With a step-by-step guide and personal consulting, the Titi Conservation Alliance will provide interested businesses with everything they need to start this program. For more information, e-mail or call 2777-2306.
