Magic happens, touches and moves us at Hotel THe Koala Garden
“Magic starts with you” is the name of the Foundation Alejandro Da Silva´s project, which moved and set the whole team of our Hotel THe Koala Garden in motion. Actually, the magic started in every worker, and in each and every guest participating in the Red Nose Day, which was especially organized to raise funds for the foundation.
On March, 23rd the entertainment team collected 692,74 € by selling red plastic noses, among others. The donation was handed over today to the Foundation Alejandro Da Silva, and it goes entirely to the project “Magic starts with you” to foment the recreational activities for kids with oncology/oncohematology diseases. The kids get to know new countries, get to live new experiences and thus escape from reality for a few days.
The foundation is established in 1989 with the purpose of joining forces to work against leukemia and other oncohaematological diseases, and giving hope to those who suffer – patients as well as family members. The foundation arises from the pain and the generosity of the parents that suffered the loss of their child, a leukemia patient. This experience led to the creation of the foundation that carries the name of their son and aims at filling the gap in the non-medical support they suffered themselves. For Hoteles THe it is an honor and a great pleasure contributing to this cause with our grain of sand for the kids to develop skills and resources that help them to cope with their disease. From here, we hearty congratulate the foundation for their admirable commitment; we will be pleased to keep collaborating with them in further occasions.
