As part of Marriott’s Europe-wide “World of Opportunity” initiative, the “You Eat, We Give”promotion aims to tackle youth unemployment by donating to partner charities.
During the campaign, all four Marriott-branded hotels will offer EUR 1 from the price of every lunch and dinner course served, in support of programmes aimed at helping young people in need.
As a further element tying in with international initiatives, Marriott’s guests will also have the opportunity to buy supporter’s bracelets and thus complement the participating restaurants’ offerings. The income from the sale of each 150 bracelets per hotel also supports SOS Children's Villages.
Among the participants are DNB Budapest (the restaurant of Budapest Marriott Hotel), Oléo Pazzo Mediterranean Bistro (Courtyard by Marriott Budapest City Center) and Bistorant (Four Points by Sheraton Kecskemét), and this year for the second time, Ritz-Carlton’s Kupola Lounge.
With this campaign, the chain aims to support the charity’s activity dedicated to helping young people in need start their own life and careers.
During the everyday work of SOS Children’s Villages, the organisation helps more than 63,000 young adults aged over 14, in such fundamental fields of life as education, preparing for the world of work, housing, social and life skills, and mental health.
Collaboration between the two associations is not new: since the programme’s launch in 2012, Marriott has supported the charity organisation’s almost 400 programmes with donations worth over EUR 3 million. Apart from this, Marriott’s employees have contributed to youth’s career building plans with over 70,000 working hours.

About SOS Children's Villages
SOS Children's Villages is the largest non-governmental organisation focused on supporting children without parental care and families at risk.
Founded in 1949, the organisation today runs 2,300 programmes reaching more than a million children and adults in 135 countries and territories. We adhere to the principle that every child grows best in a family environment, with loving parents or caregivers, living together with their siblings, in a place they can call home.
We work with communities, local partners and authorities to support disadvantaged families to prevent family breakdown. We aim to influence decision-makers to promote the well-being of children, especially of those without parental care.
We also help care for and protect at-risk children and families in more than 20 humanitarian emergencies.
