Ortigas CBD, Pasig, Metro Manila, Philippines | November 28, 2018 – Joy~Nostalg Hotel & Suites Manila marked the beginning of its festive celebrations with its Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony held last November 28, 2018. This year, the hotel is supporting Virlanie Foundation’s retail brand Likhaya, in lieu of its commitment to helping local communities and organizations as well as promoting sustainability as part of AccorHotels Planet 21 initiative.
Likhaya by Virlanie is a social enterprise that sells sustainable handcrafted bags and accessories made of upcycled magazines. The project name is derived from Filipino words “LIKHA” which means “create”, “SAYA” which means “happiness”, “KAYA” which means “able” or “ability”, “LAYA” which means freedom, and “PAMILYA” which means family. Likhaya empowers and gives mothers and young adults the opportunity to develop their skills in creating the products and hone their skills in social entrepreneurship.
“Likhaya by Virlanie and Joy Nostalg has been working together this Christmas season to provide more inclusive livelihood opportunities to the mothers and young adults among Virlanie’s community, street, and residential areas of intervention while also making an impact to the environment and to the children that we serve,” said Mary Antonette Flores, Social Entrepreneurship Manager of Likhaya by Virlanie.
Joy Nostalg Manila collaborates with Likhaya by allowing them to set up a booth at the hotel lobby where they can sell their products for the duration of the Christmas season. “We want to involve our guests in our cause and part of this is to make sure that we give them gifts that they can actually use and at the same time support our sustainable efforts. Apart from being part of the Planet 21 initiative of AccorHotels, it is also our commitment to give back by starting to help the community around us and protecting the environment at the same time,” said Shane Edwards, General Manager of Joy~Nostalg Hotel & Suites Manila.
Edwards added, “The annual tree lighting ceremony is also a night of thanksgiving and appreciation to our guests and partners who are part of the hotel’s success all throughout 2018. This year, we present special culinary offers that bring families together and complete the traditions of the upcoming festive celebrations.”
