Four Seasons Hotel Gresham Palace Budapest is launching a festive charity campaign called “Wish Upon a Star” beginning December 1, 2011 and continuing through January 31, 2012. Guests can contribute with the purchase of a Silver Star card for HUF 3,000.00 to fund the Hotel’s donation of educational books and toys to orphaned children in Hungary.
“Wish upon a star and make a child smile this holiday season – that’s the motto of this year festive charity campaign,” says Yves Giacometti, general manager at Four Seasons Hotel Gresham Palace. “We have been supporting local orphanages since the Hotel opened, and now we are inviting our guests to participate too. In February, we will purchase toys and books with the funds raised during the campaign and present the gifts to a local orphanage. All contributors will receive a letter of thanks.”
Four Seasons Hotel Gresham Palace is also extending its soup kitchen project in cooperation with Menhely Alapítvány, a local shelter program, until the end of August 2012. Every Thursday, guests and employees are invited to support the kitchen by helping to prepare meals for homeless people at the shelter.
The Hotel also continues to support the global commitment of Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts to plant 10 Million Trees. This autumn, Four Seasons Hotel Gresham Palace has planted 220 oaks – the symbolic tree of Hungary – in the city, representing the Hotel’s 220 employees.
Since its founding, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts has strived to develop long lasting and positive influences on the communities where it operates and the people it employs and serves worldwide. The company lives its values consistently through its actions in three main areas of focus as chronicled on its new Living Values website: supporting sustainability, building communities and advancing cancer research.
