    For 16 years UNICEF and Starwood Hotels and Resorts have been working together to raise funds for the world’s most vulnerable children – with over USS7 million raised since the program began.

    For 16 years UNICEF and Starwood Hotels and Resorts have been working together to raise funds for the world’s most vulnerable children – with over USS7 million raised since the program began.

    The UNICEF Check Out for Children Challenge is a staff fundraising competition between the various Starwood Hotels which began in 2003 – and continues to gather strong support throughout Starwood Hotels and Resorts in the Asia Pacific region.

    On 30 December 2011 – the Talent of W Retreat & Spa – Maldives (www.whotels.com/maldives) will be asking guests of the retreat to take the 1AKM swim to Gaathafushi – the retreat’s private island where their USS50 participation fee will be donated to the charity. Following the swim, a light BBQ, drinks and energizing beats by the Resident DJ will celebrate not only the successful completion of the race, but a celebration in knowing that valuable funds are being donated to UNICEF.

    In 2010 UNICEF Check out for Children Challenge raised over SUS132,000 in the Asia Pacific region, whilst the Talents of W Maldives have arranged fund-raising activities to help the survivors of Haiti by raising USS5,300 and more recently raising USS2,300 for the Japan Tsunami relief fund.

    Peter Foreman, Director of Sales & Marketing says; “Not only are we providing insider access to a fun event over the upcoming festive season, we are delighted to embrace this year’s theme of the Check Out For Children Challenge, Together We Can – by asking our Talents and guests to join forces and raise much needed money for our charity partner, UNICEF”.
