Our guests can choose among the three following associations:
Birds Bay is a hospital for wild animals based in Ottignies, around 30 km outside of Brussels. Since 1978, the wild animal shelter saved thousands of injured animals with the objective to reintroduce them into the wild.
Volunteers and veterinary students run the activity of Birds Bay; however, there are still several costs to cover for cages, food and medicine. With our guests’ donation at one of our hotels in Brussels, the costs of feeding a baby hedgehog or squirrel for 4 weeks are covered.
With your donation for Red Cross, you will support around 15 soup bars in Brussels which are open during winter to provide a solidarity meal that is offered to people in need. Red Cross invites everyone to come in to warm up, eat a slice of bread, get a hot cup of coffee or tea, or simply to have a chat with other people. With each donation, one hot meal for a person in need is financed.
Good Planet Belgium
Good Planet Belgium is developing numerous projects, trainings and teaching packages on a variety of sustainability themes such as mobility, biodiversity and consumption. With the donations, Thon Hotels Brussels offers a garden kit featuring seeds and a documented guide to a class at a local school. By doing this, the children will get a taste of the pleasure of gardening and growing their own food.
The objective of this specific project is to make children discover and taste vegetables and to be astonished by nature in a playful way. In 2017, 1500 garden kits were distributed thanks to this cooperation.
