HomeAway VP Bill Furlong is a known and popular face among vacation rental managers. Furlong has worked in the vacation rental industry for more than twelve years, first as CEO of Escapia and later at HomeAway. Bill’s daughter Riley was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL), and she is asking for your spit!
Riley is in need of a bone marrow transplant, and she is challenging herself to recruit 1,000 of you to register at BeTheMatch in hopes of offering a bone marrow match for Riley or another recipient who needs your help.
The amazing thing about the vacation rental community is that it consistently pulls together when it matters, so join us in trying to find a match for Riley.
Here’s what you can do:
- Watch the video (and watch it to the end for the cutest outtakes ever!)
- Go to https://join.bethematch.org/SpitForRiley to register to receive a Spit Kit
- When you get your kit, take a picture or post a video with the hashtag #SpitForRiley to show Riley your support
- Share Riley’s video with your friends, employees and network.
Someone somewhere can help Riley… we just need to find her match.
#SpitForRiley and spread the word!
