Radisson BLU Hotel Kraków: Rezidor donates EUR 10,000 to the Red Cross to help Typhoon Haiyan victims in the Philippines


The Rezidor Hotel Group has donated EUR 10,000 to the Red Cross to support the victims of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.

This donation marks the beginning of a fundraising effort that will continue until January 2014 and include all 350 Radisson Blu and Park Inn by Radisson hotels across Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA). There are six Radisson Blu Hotels in Poland – in Kraków, Wrocław, Szczecin, Gdańsk and two in Warsaw as well as one Park Inn by Radisson in Kraków.

“Some 1,100 of our team members across EMEA are from the Philippines, and we want to show that our thoughts are with them and the victims of Typhoon Haiyan. We are joining forces with Red Cross to send the much needed and urgent support that Philippines need”, said Wolfgang M. Neumann, President & CEO of Rezidor. Rezidor is a member of the Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group, which operates two hotels in the affected region: the Park Inn by Radisson Davao and the Radisson Blu Hotel, Cebu. Carlson and the Carlson Family Foundation have also donated an additional USD 10,000. Carlson Wagonlit Travel has supported the Red Cross and Red Crescent with a donation of USD 25,000. Carlson Rezidor’s loyalty program Club CarlsonSM is equally encouraged to help by reaching to its 10 million members to donate Club Carlson Gold Points® to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief effort.

Rezidor has already launched special fundraising events across EMEA. As an example, Radisson Blu Hotel, Tromsø in Norway is organizing a benefit concert with famous national artists to support “Small Projects”, a local non-profit organization created by the local residents of the Philippines community.
