Atlanta, Ga (PRWEB) September 17, 2014
The Asian American Hotel Owners Association (AAHOA), the voice of owners in the hospitality industry and a supporter of child health, nutrition and education is giving back to the community with a donation of $5000 to Save the Children.
“We are excited to offer a donation to a charity known for its dedication and success in protecting the future of children all over the world. With almost one in four U.S. children living in poverty, the work by Save the Children truly changes our nation,” said AAHOA Board Chairman Pratik Patel. “We are advocates for ensuring that the next generation is prepared for success and this is something that Save the Children does well.”
Save the Children gives children in the United States, and around the world, what every child deserves – a healthy start and the opportunity to learn and care when disaster strikes. Their global humanitarian efforts since the Great Depression have been well-documented in international civil wars, hurricanes, HIV/AIDS health care and rural poverty.
“Save the Children is grateful for this generous gift,” said Lysa Ratliff, Save the Children’s Sr. Director of Resource Development, U.S. Programs. “These funds will help us invest in the lives of children who are in need of our support.”
AAHOA’s donation will help ensure that children everywhere have a chance at a successful life—regardless of their circumstances.
Founded in 1989, AAHOA is the largest hotel owners association in the world, with more than 12,500 small business owner-members. AAHOA members own more than 20,000 properties amounting to more than 40 percent of all hotels in the United States and employ nearly 600,000 workers, accounting for over $9.4 billion in payroll annually.
