[HD video below] Red Planet Hotels has launched a regional community project on behalf of the Tune Hotels they own and operate around the region.

The For The Children Community Welfare Project which launched today (20 November 2013) at 14 Tune hotels throughout Asia, including four in Thailand, as well as properties in the Philippines, Indonesia and Japan, has been designed to help boost educational opportunities for under-privileged children.

The project involved Red Planet Hotels, the owners and operators of the Tune hotels in these countries, partnering with local charities to host a day of fun activities and learning workshops, as well as providing donations of much-needed educational tools such as stationary and computers to the local foundations.

In Bangkok, Tune Hotel Asoke teamed up with the Foundation for Slum Child Care, an organisation based at Baan Som Wai, which is located in one of the citys most impoverished neighbourhoods, the Klong Toey slum. Staff spent the day engaging with children with fun, developmental toys alongside VIP guest and famous Thai actress Khun Jeeja Yanin Vismitananda.

Meanwhile in Chonburi, staff from Tune Hotel Pattaya worked alongside the Father Ray Foundation based in Pattaya, which takes care of 850 disadvantaged children and students, with special guests from the Civil Defence Association. Staff helped with preparing food and drinks for the children and organising a host of games.

In Songkhla Province, staff from Tune Hotel Hat Yai spent the day at Songkhla Pattana Panya School, a centre established promote learning and the development of under-privileged young people in the area. Tune Hotel Hat Yai teamed up with a group of sponsors, including Nestl and Odean Fashion Mall and Diana Complex Shopping Center, who played games with the children.

In Phuket, Tune Hotel Patong worked with children at Phuket Panyanukul School, an educational centre focusing on stimulating sports-based learning activities and providing support in occupational education. Staff were involved in activities and also presented the children with gifts.

Red Planet Hotels Chief Executive Officer, Tim Hansing, said the initiative was part of the companys drive to generate and sustain positive and meaningful relationships with local communities.

We are rapidly expanding our presence in Asia, and it is important for us that we do not become just another hotel brand. Through projects like For The Children, we aim to generate positive change within local communities that support the stable growth and wellbeing of neighbourhoods, said Mr Hansing.

Red Planet Hotels owns and operates 14 Tune hotels in Thailand, the Philippines, Indonesia, Japan and will soon expand the brand in South Korea and Taiwan. Globally, Red Planet Hotels has an ownership interest in 25 operational hotels - with 12 more under development - containing 6,537 rooms. There are also Tune Hotels in Malaysia, England, India, Scotland and Australia.
