Aside from selling Happy Family Package and hosting a mini Exhibition, the hotel also encourages its associate to participate in another two main programs, which are selling cookies titled Ngemil & Ngamal and selling second-hand goods.

The hotel produces and sells cookies to associates at an affordable price. Each associate is offered to buy the cookies and encouraged to promote selling them to their families and friends. All proceeds will be donated to the program.

About UNICEF Check Out for Children Challenge
The UNICEF Check Out for Children Challenge is an annual staff fundraising competition between Starwood Hotels which began in 2003 – and continues to gather strong support throughout Starwood Hotels & Resorts in the Asia Pacific region. The Challenge is a chance for all Starwood associates to come up with a creative campaign to raise funds for UNICEF education projects.

The impact of this program is long-lasting; as children of educated mothers are 50% more likely to survive until the age of 5 than those whose mothers didn’t get a chance to go to school.

Funds raised will help UNICEF to build and improve school facilities; provide quality teachers training in impoverished areas and essential school supplies; help children return to schools after emergencies with “School-in-a-box” kits; provide teaching program for ethnic minority areas; communicate awareness of gender and health issues in schools. The global initiative runs from June through end of September 2011.
