Destinations International, an annual convention for destination marketing and management professionals, took place July 10 to 13 at the Anaheim Convention Center. For the first time, attendees were invited to bring their families to the convention, which included family-friendly community-service opportunities. Families ended up creating more than 100 stuffed animal kits designed to lift the spirits of local children in need. Each kit included a hand-stuffed animal with a custom-designed T-shirt, a handwritten note, and a "birth certificate" that kids could fill out.
