On the verge of reaching out and helping our communities, inspired by the most admired Hilton Blue Energy and CS endeavor, we engaged our humanitarian muscle in a fundraising initiative last June 12-22, 2012.
This was an imaginative and humanitarian intent of commitment in line to the Philippine Independence event happened last 12th of June. Addressed by ambitious Filipino employees of Hilton Dubai Jumeirah, a charity bazaar had been organized to support one charity institution.
The insurmountable kind of support we received fosters our energy that promotes charitable goodwill in the team. Certainly,the donations and dedication has made a real difference to those most in need. In addition,when our volunteers recognized how they can benefited from their experience, a sense of shared power and purpose is created between host communities and volunteers. Any single item of a positive value just have given, has paved the future and life of our charity.

GLOBAL GIVING CHARITY
GIVE BOOKS TO 3000 CHILDREN
IN THE PHILIPPINES
CANVAS will publish a new collection of its award-winning childrenâ€™s stories and donate at least 3000 books to benefit children in public schools and hospitals throughout the Philippines.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
11 million Filipinos are functionally illiterate (they cannot read with comprehension) while 4 million have no basic literacy skills. And while most Filipino children do enroll in Grade 1, an estimated 55% of them will drop out without finishing high school. Increased access to, and encouraging a love for books in public schools is needed to promote functional literacy, creative thinking and independent reading skills that are needed for future success.
How will this project solve this problem?
By donating full-color books of award-winning stories to public schools and hospitals, we will promote independent reading and creative thinking in Filipino children while also exposing them to the best of contemporary Filipino art and literature.
Potential Long Term Impact
The project will help empower children to think creatively, learn on their own and strengthen their love of books. These are skills that will stay and help all – even those who drop out of school – to achieve success all through their lives.
