Painting Smiles is a program created by ATELIER de Hoteles in collaboration with the Ciudad de la Alegría, City of Joy, Foundation to support “Homes with a Cause” that comprise it, with guests’ support staying in the resorts located in Cancun and Playa Mujeres.
As stated on the Eco-Social Awareness pillar of ATELIER de Hoteles, in collaboration with Ciudad de la Alegría Foundation, we extend guests this opportunity to help to improve the lifestyle of those people, that live in the Ciudad de la Alegría Homes, that are benefited throughout diverse programs and centers of assistance sharing this noble mission to help the local community.
All our resorts support this type of initiative, as part of a new standpoint: “Think globally, act locally” sharing the philosophy of “serve with love those who need it the most”.
Additionally, Arteleros of ATELIER de Hoteles are constantly participating in volunteer programs with the Ciudad de la Alegría Foundation, sharing time and their dedication to the community’s welfare.
Thank you for your donation and for taking action on this noble cause!
