Thrive Thursday: India Swaps Ice for Rice with #RiceBucketChallenge

This summer, the #ALSIceBucketChallenge took over. Everyone from celebrities to business leaders and even Hyatt’s own President and CEO Mark Hoplamazian poured buckets of ice water over their heads in support of the cause. In the end, more than $100 million was raised for the ALS Association.

In India, instead of pouring buckets of ice and water over people’s heads, many have been filling buckets with rice and giving it to locals in need. The #RiceBucketChallenge was created by a journalist from Hyderabad who switched ice for rice, aiming to bring awareness to hunger and help people at the same time.

Make Our Neighborhood Yours for a While When You Move Into Hyatt House

As an extended stay brand, our local HYATT house communities often become the neighborhoods that guests move into for five days, a month or even more. That’s why HYATT house colleagues believe when you walk through their doors, you’re no longer a guest… you’re a resident. And we want you to make our neighborhood yours for a while.

So today, the brand’s launching new local guides and an advertising campaign featuring real guests’ Instagram photos to encourage you to do just that.

Thrive Thursday: Grand Hyatt Rio de Janeiro Opens Doors to the Community Even Before Guests

It’s hard to believe that one year ago, Hyatt launched a new corporate philanthropy program, Ready to Thrive, as an extension of global corporate responsibility platform, Hyatt Thrive.  With a focus on literacy and career readiness, Ready to Thrive has taken shape in a number of ways and through various collaborations with nonprofit partners across the globe.  One particularly special example of this commitment is taking place in Rio de Janerio where a new Grand Hyatt hotel is scheduled to open in 2015.

Before even opening their doors to guests, this hotel has made big plans to open their doors to the local community.  With the initial donation from Hyatt of $750,000, the team is engaging two local nonprofits, AlfaSol and Roda Vida, to support career readiness and education programs for low-income youth in the community.
