Bring hope to children in rural Ethiopia

April 14, 2015

RoomFunding™ is here [insert happy dance here] and we’ll be highlighting projects here on our blog. First up is A Glimmer of Hope…

A little bit about A Glimmer of Hope

We’ve partnered with Glimmer since H4H started and we’re so honored to work them. To say they do incredible work in Ethiopia would be an understatement. They’ve invested $85 million to build 9,000 projects—and counting—in the most remote, impoverished villages of Ethiopia. Projects include things like building water wells so people (including kids) don’t have to walk miles just to get clean water.

So far we’ve been able to donate enough to build one was a deep water well, one shallow water well and help them with their work improving the villages. But we’re far from being done.

Why we love this project

Their RoomFunding project will raise funds for the Villages of Gondar. If we can get 4,500 room nights for them, then we can impact the lives of 100 children.

That $9,000 will help build schools so children don’t have to sit on mud seats in classrooms with no windows. They won’t have to walk miles to get clean water…it’ll be less than a mile away. And they will have better healthcare options.

How you can help

For every room night that actualizes, Hotels for Hope donates $2 to Glimmer’s RoomFunding project…at no cost to you. But Glimmer needs your help to reach their goal of 4,500 room nights. How do you do that, you ask? There are two simple ways to do this…

  1. Book room nights from your next business trip or a personal stay. Every room night matters and gets them closer to reaching their goal.
  2. Commit your next meeting or event. If your company hosts meetings or conferences, you could support Glimmer in a bigger way. Whether you are organizing a conference, meeting, board retreat, sporting event, festival, or large consumer event…we’ve got your back. Our services and technology will make planning these events much easier.

So what do you say, can you help Glimmer out?

Commit your room nights to help bring hope to children in the Villages of Gondar!
