Intercontinental Bali Resort Lights Up For Ihg Foundation Week

September 21, 2017 Resort News No Comments Email Email

The InterContinental Bali Resort team showed their love and support for the environment and  the local community during the annual  IHG (Intercontinental Hotel Group) Foundation Week, which was held from 10 – 17 September 2017.

Launched in February 2016, the IHG Foundation is an independent charity that focuses its attention on helping communities to develop skills in hospitality, providing support for those impacted by disasters, encouraging grassroots community support, and protecting the environment.

This year’s week-long awareness and fundraising initiative saw thousands of IHG colleagues in more than 80 countries globally pledge as many activities as they could do during the week, which is IHG’s way of giving back to the communities in which their hotels operate. For each activity a staff member officially pledges to take part in, IHG makes a donation to the IHG Foundation on their behalf.

InterContinental Bali Resort, and indeed all of the IHG resorts in Bali were encouraged to pledge and take part in as many different activities as possible outside of daily routines, and all of the staff participated. Highlights included tree planting, turtle release and mangrove planting to promote the spirit of ecological responsibility, and blood donation to raise awareness among the community on how blood donation can be instrumental in saving lives. Additional pledged undertakings included yoga, morning walks, and sunset jogging. A number of guests at InterContinental Bali Resort also participated in turtle release and the ‘I Love Bali’ candle lighting event. The other IHG resorts in Bali likewise joined in some of the activities. The week of fundraising endeavours was closed at InterContinental Bali Resort on Sunday 17th September with activities such as ‘Walk by the Beach’, beach cleaning, aerobics, more yoga, meditation, a rack race, and much more.

The staff at InterContinental Bali Resort felt very proud to be contributing to IHG’s commitment to protect the environment and invest in local communities, thus setting the foundations for stronger, healthier, more prosperous communities around the world.
