Children from Nishimachi international school pose with Grand Hyatt Tokyo staff in the lobby Tuesday after decorating trees with stained glass ornaments made from recycled wine and champagne corks. The display is part of the hotel’s “Colors of Hope” charity program, featuring various activities designed to support people with disabilities as well as children in the Tohoku and Kumamoto regions, areas hit by devastating earthquakes and a tsunami, via Kids Earth Fund (KEF). The hotel works with ReKikou, a nonprofit organisation hat recycles wine and champagne corks into new products, helping generate employment and support independence for people with disabilities.
The hotel will also have a SNS program allowing guests to post photos on social media. For every guest or visitor who posts a photo with the hashtag #GrandHoliday 2017 on Instagram, the hotel will donate 100 yen per post to KEF. Special prizes for the most photogenic pictures will also be prepared. Please see the campaign site (https://www.tokyo.grand.hyatt.co.jp/grandxmas2017-en) for more information.© Japan Today
