As the world continues to navigate the pandemic and other unfortunate events, hoteliers have remained positive and have been kind to their industry and communities.
2020 — and the beginning of this year so far — was rough for everyone.
Even though we’ve been living in a dumpster fire for 10 months, people are finding ways to be kind and make a difference. Especially in the hotel industry.
Baltimore’s Hotel Revival is one hotel that’s been doing a lot for its community, including offering free and discounted stays to first responders and distributing food to those who need it. The hotel has also been supporting local businesses by switching up its vendor list.
Another initiative is Hospitality Cares’ Pie in the Face Challenge, a social media campaign starting today to raise money for those in the hospitality industry who are experiencing financial issues because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The organization asks hotel executives to post photos of themselves having a pie thrown at their face to raise awareness and encourage donations. Who doesn’t love watching people have pie thrown at them?
