Starwood & UNICEF united for children.
Check Out for ChildrenTM is the global fundraising partnership between UNICEF and Starwood Hotels and Resorts. Since its launch in November 1995, the programme has raised US $22 million, helping UNICEF to immunise 1 million children against preventable disease.
Water is the essence of life.
Yet, every day, more than 5.000 children die because of unsafe drinking water and poor sanitation. Moreover, many children drop out of class because their schools da not have clean water and adeguate sanitation.
The Westin Palace, Milan provides clean water and sanitation facilities in schools and communities across Africa through the 'Water for Life' project.
Donations by the guests of Westin hotels support UNICEF's work in bringing clean water and sanitation to schools and communities across Africa.
The Check Out For ChildrenTM mechanism is incredibly simple yet effective. Upon arrival at a Starwood hotel, guests are advised they will be invited to add one 1 € to their bill upon check out, as a donation to UNICEF.
Would you allows us to add an extra 1 € to your room bill in aid of UNICEF?
Your donation will help to provide water points and sanitation facilities in communities, bringing well-being to children and the chance to go to school.
Any guest not wishing to donate merely informs reception accordingly. Guests wishing to make a larger donation are invited to contact any member of the front office staff.
