Vibe Hotels Helping the Homeless
Having a safe and secure place to call home or even just stay is part of what makes us human. With winter bringing cold wet weather to many areas we all know how pleased we are that we have such a place.
During the months of August and September 2009 Vibe Hotels and StreetSmart are asking guests to add a $2 or more donation onto their accommodation bill. Money raised will fund emergency accommodation services throughout Australia to those that need support.
Since 2003 StreetSmart has been changing the lives of people experiencing homelessness through a restaurant campaign run in the six weeks prior to Christmas. Supporters have raised over $830,000 to fund over 188 small community based organisations, providing emergency aid, accommodation, critical services and projects promoting social inclusion, empowerment and sustainable change to help people avoid or move out of homelessness.
Rachel Argaman, CEO, Toga Hospitality said, "Vibe Hotels are proud to be supporting StreetSmart Australia's Hotels Helping the Homeless campaign to raise vital funds. Helping out is easy – guests staying at any Vibe Hotel can add a $2 or more donation to their invoice for their stay. We look forward to helping StreetSmart attain their fundraising goals for 2009
"Many Australians will not have a safe and secure place to stay tonight. StreetSmart is a simple idea that allows us all to help out and sleep soundly. So please get involved and donate generously." Tim Costello, StreetSmart Patron, CEO World Vision.
Vibe Hotels can be found across Sydney, Melbourne, Darwin and the Gold Coast. Each hotel is an expression of the city village in which it is located and reflects the local surrounds from beach-chic to city-slick or urban-cool, allowing travellers to experience and absorb the essence of the destination.
