Starwood Hotels & Resorts launched its Check Out For Children initiative in partnership with UNICEF in November 1995. It’s a simple idea where guests are invited to donate $1 US or equivalent upon departing the hotel. As of last year, Starwood has raised over $25 million for clinics and schools in impoverished regions.
Guests can also participate in philanthropic causes when booking Starwood’s upscale St. Regis properties through the St. Regis Aficionado program.
Better Globe financed the renovations of Mboty Primary School through money donated to Child Africa coming from the Better Globe Donation Packages that members and Ambassadors are buying on a monthly basis.
