The International SPA Association (ISPA) partnered with The Shop Forward for the 2019 ISPA Conference & Expo. Attendees of the 29thannual event received a ResortSuite-sponsored registration bag and personalized tote from The Shop Forward.

The Shop Forward has raised over $3 million dollars for charity and directly supports ESPWA, whose mission is to develop projects that empower the people of Haiti, alleviate poverty, build relationships and encourage hope. The ESPWA line originally began when The Shop Forward sought to help an orphanage in Port-au-Prince. In addition to providing continued support for this orphanage, it now partners with various causes to fulfill needs throughout Haiti.

“We are thrilled to partner with The Shop Forward and ResortSuite as we give back to the ESPWA organization during the 2019 ISPA Conference & Expo,” said ISPA president Lynne McNees. “Any time we can support a worthy cause while providing our attendees with an excellence experience is a win-win.”

Every product offered by The Shop Forward helps support programs and organizations that effectively work to help others around the world. Some of these causes include St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, American Red Cross, Capital Area Food Bank and TEM Haiti.
