  • This year’s beneficiary is The Mustard Seed of Central Florida, focused on helping residents and families recover from hardships while minimizing environmental impact.
  • In addition to providing household items for reuse, The Mustard Seed recycles unusable items to create a more sustainable community.
  • Since 2011, their innovative recycling program has deconstructed over 160,000 mattresses, repurposing components and diverting nearly 4 million cubic feet of waste from landfills, significantly reducing environmental impact.  
  • Visit Orlando will also award a $3,000 donation to one local nonprofit that offers impactful approaches to creating thriving and sustainable communities in each of Orange County’s six commission districts.
  • Visit Orlando’s Magical Dining has raised more than $2.5 million for local organizations since 2009.
  • Last year, the program donated $269,272 to charities supporting survivors of abuse in Central Florida, including organizations addressing human trafficking.
  • With the funds raised, The Lifeboat Project hired a case manager, purchased vehicles for transportation services, and began constructing a safe house.
