Successful initiative, now in its fourth year, calls on guests to donate at least one kilo of food, clothing and educational supplies to disadvantaged communities around the world.
Moevenpick Resort & Spa Jimbaran Bali is helping local people in need as part of the 2018 'Kilo of Kindness' global charity campaign.

Launched by Moevenpick Hotels & Resorts in 2015, the highly-successful initiative, which honours the United Nations International Day of Charity on 5 September, calls on guests to donate at least one kilo of food, clothing and educational supplies to disadvantaged communities around the world, with a focus on underprivileged youngsters.

Moevenpick Resort & Spa Jimbaran Bali is one of 30+ hotels across Africa, Asia, Europe and the Middle East supporting the campaign, which runs from 1-15 September.

Guests and visitors are invited to drop off at least one kilo of supplies at the hotel lobby during that period, which will then be distributed to Sekolah Lentera Anak Bali – an organisation providing educational support to children and teenagers. The resort is also working with Yayasan Citra Usadha Indonesia, an NGO assisting people with HIV to get access to medical insurance.

Last year, 8,500 kilos of supplies were donated by guests of participating hotels – a figure Moevenpick hopes to surpass with its 2018 campaign. While each guest is encouraged to donate at least one 'Kilo of Kindness', all contributions will be gratefully received.

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.
