Preferred Hotel Group's Member Hotels help Make a Difference

Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Friday, 25 April 2008

59 member hotels of the Preferred Hotel Group will participate in this year's "The Giving Room". From May 1 through August 31, for every night a hotel's designated "Giving Room" is occupied, 10% of the selected room or suite's revenue will be donated to the hotel's charity of choice. At the conclusion of the program, donations will be matched by funds from the Ueberroth Family Foundation.

"The Giving Room" is an outgrowth of Preferred Hotel Group's GIFTTS program which stands for Great Initiatives for Today's (Tomorrow's) Society, a recognition initiative launched in August 2006. Designed to acknowledge and encourage socially responsible actions by member hotels and employees in the areas of philanthropy, environment and community service), GIFTTS applauds great ideas for effecting positive change at the local level.

"In honor of Preferred Hotel Group's 40th Anniversary, our goal for this year's "Giving Room" program was to enlist participation from at least 40 members worldwide," said John Ueberroth, Chairman and CEO, Preferred Hotel Group. "Once again our members have risen to the occasion. We are humbled to see the global dedication to philanthropic endeavors both by our members and their guests."

In its inaugural year, "The Giving Room" raised nearly $20,000 in total donations for charitable organizations in seven countries. From India to Peru, the United States to the Netherlands, the 2008 "Giving Room" program will provide aide to communities in 18 countries around the globe.

Members' charitable choices span the globe and include projects such as Singapore's 'Community Chest', 'Seva Mandir,' a volunteer organization in Rajasthan that assists in the development of rural issues, 'Udayan Care' a home for abandoned children in New Delhi and Bangkok's 'Red Cross'.
