Hotels For Hope launches in style!

CLINK was already hooked on the work Austin Hospitality was doing for our clients – securing great rates for hotel room blocks, so we were thrilled to partner with them in their newest endeavor Hotels For Hope.

We even got to help produce their launch party (you can always tell a CLINKer by the signature purple garb).  Paggi House hosted a cocktail reception with delectable fare! Ricotta and tomato bruschetta, risotto croquettes and beef tenderloin brochette with maytag fondue – YUM! Champagne flowed as everyone CLINKed to the promising future of Hotels for Hope!

The entertainment for the night was an astonishingly talented eleven-year old named Grace London. She wowed every guest with her acoustic renditions of songs by Janis Joplin, Led Zeppelin, Fleetwood Mac and Corinne Bailey Rae. Grace’s soulful voice and performance had guests picking their jaws up off the floor.

Hotels for Hope is dedicated to enriching the lives of children across the world. A room night booked equals a smile on a child’s face. By parlaying our clients, hotels and charities, Hotels for Hope will succeed.

Hotels for Hope is a non-profit agency that makes giving as easy as breathing! Each room that is blocked by a guest in your wedding, social or corporate block will generate $2 for Hotels for Hope – $1 from the property and $1 from Austin Hospitality. Your event instantly becomes charitable and you don’t have to lift a finger! All of your guests will appreciate your social awareness and may even be inclined to donate more.

Hotels for Hope supports four charities:

  • A Glimmer of Hope – A Glimmer of Hope is helping some of the poorest people on Earth lift themselves out of poverty.  One hundred percent of all donations are used to bring clean water, education, health care, and microfinance to the rural poor in Ethiopia. All of the proceeds from Hotels for Hope will be used to build and furnish schools in Ethiopia and to support Camp Glimmer, a summer camp program for disadvantaged youth in Austin.  The funds will be split 50/50 between these programs in Austin and Africa.
  • Livestrong – Founded in 1997 and based in Austin, Texas, LIVESTRONG connects individuals to the support they need, leverages funding and resources to spur innovation and engages communities and leaders to drive social change. Hotels for Hope provides support for LIVESTRONG at School, which provides free online lessons that teach about cancer in a way that is age-appropriate, hopeful, inspiring and empowering. Lessons include national standards, clear learning objectives, engaging videos, extension activities, a check for understanding and ways students can get involved in the fight against cancer and LIVESTRONG Young Adult Alliance, a coalition of organizations with the goal to improve the survival rates and quality of life for young adults with cancer between the ages of 15 and 40. The Alliance is committed to promoting research and the investigation of the problem, serving as a voice for the issue and promoting effective solutions.
  • TAPS – Providing support and care for the Families of America’s Fallen Military Heroes since 1994, the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors is America’s front line resource for anyone grieving the death of a loved one serving in our Armed Forces, regardless of relationship or circumstance of the death. Your contribution through Hotels for Hope will ensure children of America’s fallen service members are not left behind by providing a safe, supportive environment in which to learn coping skills, find others who have also experienced a military loss, and know that they are not alone.  TAPS Good Grief Camps are held throughout the year across the country and are facilitated by some of America’s finest adolescent grief and trauma experts and trained volunteers.  The camps are also supported by hundreds of military members, who devote their time to serve as mentors to the children and teens; giving their care and compassion so the children know the military cares for them, they are not forgotten and their loved ones are honored and remembered.
  • Special Olympics, Texas – Special Olympics Texas (SOTX) is a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering children and adults with intellectual disabilities (ID) through sport, as well as creating a better world by fostering acceptance and inclusion of all people.  SOTX provides year-round sports trainings and more than 250 athletic competitions for over 36,000 athletes, but the benefits of involvement extend off the field of play as well. Your donation through Hotels for Hope will enable us to a voice to more athletes, to change more lives and to continue to make a societal change advancing the understanding of children and adults with intellectual disabilities.

Every CLINK client gets the Hotels For Hope service, so they get the expertise of Austin Hospitality while helping a child in need!
