#cocooncares – Cocoon Christmas initiatives 2019
In 2019, Cocoon Hotels also launched a rousing campaign for the Outpatient Children’s Hospice Munich. In the lobby of the Cocoon Hotels at the main station and Stachus, there was a beautiful Christmas tree with many great pendants. For a donation of any amount for one of our projects, our guests could choose a pendant. But not only this way, also by direct donations on the spot, guests and Cocoonies could support the project.
Our fundraiser at Cocoon Sendlinger Tor was no less important. There we conjured a smile on the lips of orphans with our project #cocooneinkinderlachen on Christmas Eve. We received a wish list from the children from the orphanage and exactly these toys or useful items were waiting next to our Christmas tree in the lobby to be packed by guests. Each guest was able to add a little message to the package and so guests were able to help us together with Cocoon to make children’s hearts beat faster.
The highlight of the donation period was our small event to kick off the donations. Under the motto #cocooncares, the event took place on the first Advent weekend at Cocoon Hauptbahnhof, together with the Munich organizations Ambulantes Kinderhospiz and Lichtblick Seniorenhilfe, in a Christmas atmosphere. Seniors, children, guests and employees spent a wonderful afternoon together, which made everyone present aware of the original meaning of Christmas again. There was plenty to feast on from sausages to cookies and homemade punch, but entertainment was also provided by means of craft sessions and Christmas music.
A huge thank you also to our partners Hamberger, Otto Pachmayr, the Munich Soup Kitchen, Bioteaque and MAXIM, who supported us with generous donations in kind!
