Les P’tits Cracks

I’m in Versailles, France right now for work, and staying in a pretty stunning hotel, the Trianon Palace by Waldorf Astoria. In addition to the sublime setting and phenomenal service, I’m so pleased to see that as the hotel celebrates its 100th anniversary this year, it has partnered with a children’s charity to raise funds and awareness. Les P’tits Cracks was founded in 2001 and supports children with cancer both in hospital (funding medical equipment and treatments in and around Paris) as well as once kids are discharged. Les P’tits Cracks brings young convalescents to equestrian camps and cultural excursions. The horse camps help in healing and dramatically improve moods and outlook among kids needing every ounce of positivity.

Next time you’re in a hotel, ask what charitable and community work the hotel supports. Almost all have some particular outreach to leave a stamp on the community where they reside, and the ventures are worth a little support from us, the customers…not just because the charities benefit, but to also show hotel corporate decision makers that philanthropy and outreach are qualities that matter to us.
