The 2017 Marco Polo Xiamen charity bazaar came to a successful end on October 22nd, 2017. The event raised more than RMB 23,000 for the special children of Children of Promise.

 

The first Marco Polo Xiamen charity bazaar was held in 2016 in celebration of the hotel’s 20th anniversary. The success of the first charity bazaar garnered attention and admiration from the public. This year, Marco Polo Xiamen once again obtained support for the event from community stakeholders including families, merchants, international schools, and the Guanren International Community. The Wharf Hotel contributed five valuable hotel room vouchers for the auction and donated all auction income to the Children of Promise.

“We regard our work on the charity bazaar as a chance to give back to society. Our hope is to rally our hotel staff and the resources of local community members to help families with special needs and to show our concern for special children. The good news is that our event has received recognition and support from the public. In the future, we will continue to conduct these types of public welfare activities to fulfill our corporate social responsibility,”
Ms. Millie Tsui said.

 

A bustling bazaar full of love


After the opening of the bazaar was announced at 2 p.m. by General Manager of Marco Polo Xiamen
Ms. Millie Tsui, and the representative of the Children of Promise, the waiting crowd flowed into the bazaar and started their shopping immediately. All items for sale were donated by Marco Polo Xiamen's staff, citizens, and merchants. The hotel opened its doors to the public, offering booths selling unique donated items.

 

 

Growing up together in an environmentally-friendly society 


To make progress within Guanren International Community and to support new municipal garbage classification measures aimed at being more sustainable, the hotel invited an environmental expert from the Guanren International Community to teach the children in an engaging way about garbage classification. The Guanren International Community is a promoter of eco-friendly tableware which is made of
small wheat straw.
