Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts Launches 2019 'Kilo of Kindness'


Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts is lending a hand to people in need with the launch of its 2019 ‘Kilo of Kindness’ global charity campaign. Now in its fifth year, the ‘Kilo of Kindness’ campaign which honours the UN International Day of Charity on 5 September, calls on guests to donate at least one kilo of food, clothing and educational supplies to disadvantaged communities around the world, with a focus on underprivileged young people. This year more than 50 Mövenpick hotels across Africa, Asia, Europe and the Middle East are supporting the campaign, which runs from 1-15 September. Guests and visitors are invited to drop off at least one kilo of supplies at any participating hotel lobby, which will then be distributed locally by the charities each hotel has partnered with. High-priority items include books, notebooks and stationery such as pens, pencils, rulers and erasers; canned foods such as tuna, soup, fruit, vegetables and concentrated milk; dry foods like rice, beans, oats, pasta, cereals, flour, powdered milk, baby formula, tea and coffee; and clothing for adults and children. Last year, a staggering 12,700 kilograms of supplies were donated via the participating hotels – a figure Mövenpick hopes to surpass with its 2019 campaign. While each guest is encouraged to donate a ‘Kilo of Kindness’, all contributions are welcome and gratefully received.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.
