The Ritz-Carlton Offers The Perfect Gift That Keeps On Giving Benefitting Make-A-WishA®









CHEVY CHASE, Md., Dec. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Inspire. Engage. Contribute. These are the guiding principles of Community Footprints®, The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company's social responsibility program focusing on hunger and poverty relief, environmental responsibility, and the well-being of children, which also encourages guests to give back to our local communities.  Around the world throughout the year, The Ritz-Carlton is proud to support Make-A-Wish, where hotels enliven exceptional wish experiences for children facing life-threatening illnesses. This holiday season from December 9 th through the 22 nd, the global hotel company will donate 10 percent of the card value for every Community Footprints Gift Card purchased in the U.S., Caribbean and online – donating up to $100,000 to Make-A-Wish.

"We are in the business of creating lasting memories for all of our guests, but there is no greater joy than bestowing a child's wish," offered Herve Humler, President and Chief Operating Officer of The Ritz-Carlton, Hotel Company.  "I am humbled that our Ladies and Gentlemen feel empowered to leave indelible marks on these brave children's lives and this gift card allows our customers around the world to support the extraordinary, life-changing experiences that Make-A-Wish delivers," he continued.

From a young boy's wish to soar amongst the skyscrapers in a helicopter ride; a birthday party 118 floors above Hong Kong's iconic Victoria Harbor; a starring role for a pint-sized super model to glide down a catwalk during a European Fashion Week; a V.V.I.P.'s private tour of New York City to all the renowned landmarks, including a cruise on the Harbor and visit to The Empire State Building Observatory; a royal princess for a day in Abu Dhabi, ceremoniously graced with a ball gown, coronation, carriage ride and Prince Charming; to  fulfilling a child's fantasy of swimming amongst the dolphins and lounging on a yacht in the Canary Islands. 

"We're thankful for the generous support from the Ladies and Gentlemen of The Ritz-Carlton and the willingness of those participating in this program to help us grant wishes for children with life-threatening medical conditions this Holiday Season," said David Williams, President and Chief Executive Officer, Make-A-Wish America.  "Together through this relationship, The Ritz-Carlton and Make-A-Wish are able to grant more wishes in communities around the world."

The Ritz-Carlton global family has embraced granting wishes and magnified them by galvanizing their professional and personal contacts in the spirit of selfless service for a meaningful endeavor.
