Hotel brand shows it has a heart


Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts is running its annual Kilo of Kindness campaign for the month of October, collecting community donations of clothes, food, toys, and school supplies in support of charitable organisations.

Mövenpick Hotel Melbourne on Spencer and Mövenpick Hotel Hobart are inviting guests, visitors, and members of their local communities to bring in one or more kilos of pre-loved and soon-to-be-reloved donations.

“Mövenpick believes in the power of food as a force for good and a medium for positive change, so we invite you to bring a bag of donations to one of our participating hotels,” said Kishan Chandnani, global vice president, premium brands, for Accor.

“Each year, Kilo of Kindness gives us the opportunity to weave the warm Mövenpick spirit of generosity more deeply throughout our communities. The campaign allows us to reach beyond our hotel walls and share our food - along with clothing, toys, and school supplies – with those most in need, bringing more smiles to the faces in our communities.”

This year, Mövenpick's Kilo of Kindness aims to gather 25,000 kilos of donations, across 77 participating Mövenpick hotels around the world - a record number of destinations.

“Acts of kindness really do hold weight," says Mövenpick Hotel Melbourne on Spencer general manager Cory Norris-Jones.

"Our team is delighted to receive donations on behalf of our local charity, Food For Families, throughout October.

"Simply load a bag with a kilo or more of donations, drop it off at our hotel and leave with a warm smile and a lighter heart.

"It's an easy way to do good, feel good, and keep the good vibes going around Melbourne.”

In Hobart, GM Andrew Walling says: "Our team is proud to support Kilo of Kindness again this year. Hobart is a large community and this is one of many opportunities where we can give back to our amazing city.

"“We are humbled to work with the Hobart Women's Shelter as our charity this year, assisting them in supporting women and children in need. Hotel guests and locals alike are welcome to drop off goods to the hotel lobby throughout October. Every kilo counts.”

Kilo of Kindness donations may be delivered to Mövenpick Hotel Melbourne on Spencer and Mövenpick Hotel Hobart throughout October.
