Feel Good Friday: A Kilo of Kindness Goes a Long Way
Gearing up for International Day of Charity on the 5th of September is Mövenpick Hotel & Residences Nairobi. They’re bringing back their “Kilo of Kindness campaign” where patrons and other persons of goodwill support those in need during this pandemic.
The hotel joins more than 45 Mövenpick hotels across Africa, Asia, Europe and the Middle East who are similarly collecting items, with a global goal to gather some 25,000 kilos of donations.
Guests, visitors and the local community are invited to drop off at least one kilo of supplies at their lobby from September 1-30.
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.
The collected items will be shared with local communities in need, with a focus on underprivileged children at The Angels of Hope Children’s Home in Kibera.
While guests and local neighbours are invited to donate a ‘Kilo of Kindness’, all contributions are welcome and gratefully received.
This Feel Good Friday, consider donating a Kilo of Kindness.
