“Draw Your Happiness” – 2020 Holiday Charity Program

From November 13 to December 25, Grand Hyatt Tokyo will host its annual holiday charity program under this year’s theme “Draw Your Happiness”. This year’s central color, white, signifies a fresh start, new beginnings and future possibilities – a blank canvas where each person has the power to “draw” their own happiness. The current circumstances of our world make it difficult at times for us to remain hopeful, but as 2020 draws to a close, Grand Hyatt Tokyo will share its hope for a positive new beginning through this charity program.

With the support of non-profit organizations, Kids Earth Fund (KEF) and Re Kikou, the charity program will feature a beautifully-decorated lobby with photo spots and donation boxes, holiday hampers and charitable ornaments for sale to support people with disabilities, people displaced by conflict around the world as well as children in regions hit by devastating natural disasters.

Since March 2011, Grand Hyatt Tokyo has striven to support the communities affected by these catastrophic disasters through monetary donations, charitable contributions and volunteer efforts. As of January 2020, a total of more than JPY 61 million has been donated, and the hotel hopes to continue increasing the amount each year.

Enjoy the holiday season at Grand Hyatt Tokyo this year and join us for “Draw Your Happiness”, a meaningful charity program to deliver hope for a bright and positive future during this season of joy.

    About “Draw Your Happiness”

    Christmas Charity en 640

    Since 2011, Grand Hyatt Tokyo has been hosting a charity program every year with different themes. 2020 embraces the theme of “Draw Your Happiness,” to share our hope for a positive new beginning and offer support to those most in need. The hotel is collaborating with Re Kikou, an organization that recycles corks from wine and champagne bottles used in the hotel to create original products. In creating these products, the organization assists welfare groups in generating work and independence for people with disabilities. A percentage of the revenue that is collected from the hotel offerings will be donated to Kids Earth Fund in support of children affected by natural disasters including the tsunami of March 11, 2011.
