The Peninsula Hotels today launches “HOPE FOR THE PHILIPPINES” across all hotels from today until 31 January 2014 to raise funds to support the victims of Super Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.
All proceeds from “HOPE FOR THE PHILIPPINES” will be donated to the Philippine-based Gawad Kalinga Community Development Foundation, Inc. – a partner of The Peninsula Manila – to rebuild homes and communities in the affected areas of Eastern Visayas. Peninsula Manila executives will oversee Gawad Kalinga’s work on The Peninsula Hotels’ behalf, while hotel staff are already donating their time packing relief supplies and helping with the disaster effort.
The Peninsula Hotels will make a donation of US$ 5.00 per room night of each guest’s stay, while guests wishing to make an additional contribution may simply request to have the amount added to their credit card upon check-out.
A special Philippine-themed “Tea of Hope” will be served, with 100% of the retail price of each tea set donated to “HOPE FOR THE PHILIPPINES”. Focusing on the tropical fruits of the Philippines, the special tea features mango, coconut, banana and pineapple-flavoured treats.
Meanwhile, continuing the sweet theme, the iconic Philippine dessert favourite Halo Halo, served at The Peninsula Manila’s iconic lobby, is now available in each Peninsula hotel, with 100% of the retail price donated to “HOPE FOR THE PHILIPPINES”.
Now in its 10th year across all hotels, The Peninsula Hotels’ annual groupwide “Trees of Hope” fundraising campaign for 2013 is dedicated to “HOPE FOR THE PHILIPPINES”, with specially created SnowPage glass ornaments for guests making a donation to take home.
Please show your most generous support to our “HOPE FOR THE PHILIPPINES” initiative!
