What is Breeze Card?
Breeze Card is a membership club that rewards the readers of The Bocas Breeze Newspaper and visitors of Bocas del Toro with exclusive benefits. Breeze Card members are able to enjoy discounts, promotions, special gifts and unique perks made available by The Bocas Breeze and its advertising partners.
The membership pass is a credit card sized ID made of mahogany wood (no more plastic for the island!) Some are calling it “The Wooden Key to the City.”
Where can Breeze Card be purchased?
The 2023 edition is currently on sale at Bocas Island Express, El Ultimo Refugio, The Floating Bar and Super Gourmet. You can also order directly from The Bocas Breeze Newspaper by contacting +507 6537-0405 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The price is $47 and it’s valid until December 31, 2023. That’s less than $5 a month to support the work of a dedicated independent community newspaper!
Why participate in the 2023 Breeze Card membership program?
#1 The benefits! Exclusive discounts and promotions. We will also be making exclusive content available via email and WhatsApp.
#2 The savings! If you only take advantage of the deals occasionally throughout the year, you are sure to earn your investment back, and some! “My husband and I saved nearly $300 with our Breeze Card!” – Jenny C, 2022.
#3 Support Bocas del Toro’s community newspaper! The success of this membership club aims to provide more resources to keep serving our community; keeping everyone informed and sharing the wonders of Bocas del Toro to the world.
The Bocas Breeze is not just another advertising service. Our focus is community news and visitor information, which both require a lot of time and resources and are not directly funded by advertising. We are also dedicated to providing continued support to important community causes; the social, cultural, historical, environmental, educational and health initiatives that editorial team feels are in line with our vision for a “healthier, happier, well-informed, entertained and prosperous Bocas del Toro.”
Though we may accept the occasional photo or article contributed by a traveler, for all paid work opportunities we are committed to hiring local journalists, photographers and content creators. Your membership is an investment into Bocas del Toro’s economy and our team’s ability to do perform the duties of a dedicated community newspaper.
In short, Breeze Card is keeping Bocas del Toro’s communtiy newspaper alive.
Is the 2022 card still valid?
No, that was the “2022 card.” It’s 2023! Only with the 2023 card (light blue with the rain drop) can be used to redeem the current benefits. The original 2022 card is now a collector’s item. 2022 members do receive a special price on their 2023 card if they order directly from The Bocas Breeze Newspaper.
Why is there a raindrop on the 2023 card?
The 2023 edition of Breeze Card comes along with a social purpose. We will be dedicating a portion of sales to our “Catch The Rain” program; to raise awareness and contribute toward solutions regarding a very important infastructrual challenge that faces the community: water.
For each Breeze Card sold, 5% of the sales will be dedicated to the next The Darklands Foundation “Potable Water Program.” and another 5% will be invested into raising awareness, funding the research and reporting related to the water challenges in Bocas del Toro.
