Fairmont Hotels & Resorts in the US West want you to drop off your pajamas for their ‘Open Your Heart’ Valentine’s campaign.
These Northern California hotels have teamed up with Pajama Program and hope to collect thousands of new pajamas, books and cash donations from guests, employees and community members on Feb 11, 2011. The collected loot will be handed over to philanthropic organizations in each hotel’s host communities.
Pajama Program is a non-profit that provides comfort and love in the form of new pajamas to children-in-need and those waiting for a permanent home.
Pallie Zambrano, co-president of Pajama Program’s Northern California chapter, says that “By providing pajamas we help to create a warm and nurturing bedtime environment for vulnerable youngsters living under difficult circumstances.”
The properties taking part in this PJ drive include some of the most romantic hotels in San Francisco, San Jose, Sonoma, Newport Beach and Santa Monica. Those who can and want to donate should stop off at one of the below listed hotels on Feb 11, 2011, between 6 am to 10 am.
Fairmont San Francisco – 950 Mason Street San Francisco CA 94108
Fairmont Heritage Place, Ghirardelli Square – 900 North Point Street San Francisco CA 94109
Fairmont San Jose – 170 South Market Street San Jose CA 95113
Fairmont Newport Beach – 4500 MacArthur Blvd. Newport Beach CA 92660
Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows – 101 Wilshire Boulevard Santa Monica CA 90401
Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa – 100 Boyes Boulevard Sonoma CA 95476
Some of the participating hotels are planning to motivate people to ‘open your heart’ and contribute by holding drawings for sleepovers.
The winners will get a one night complimentary stay, along with Fairmont bathrobes, slippers and teddy bears. Even if you don’t get the sleepover, everyone who turns up is still going to be rewarded with a free cookie.
The Fairmont San Francisco also has a ‘Love Is In the Air’ Valentine’s Day package which includes a one-night stay, choice of Champagne brunch in Laurel Court or Mimosas & Breakfast in Bed, and complimentary overnight parking.
