Solmar Foundation Offers Group Teambuilding Activities With Charitable Tie-Ins
Los Cabos, Mexico - (February 19, 2016) - Group philanthropy and charitable incentives not only promote productivity within a company, but also brings its employees together. The Solmar Foundation, a nonprofit which supports over 30 charitable organizations in Baja California Sur built in honor of tourism pioneer, the late Don Luis Bulnes of Solmar Hotels and Resorts, offers an array of experiences for event planners looking for fresh alternatives for groups with a social responsibility component.
Among the dozens of ways groups can collaborate with the Solmar Foundation are: direct assistance to disabled children through a program called, "Celebration of Life"; food drives, where participants are involved in the entire process, from bagging to delivery; community centers and facility maintenance, and more. The "Helping Hands" tour, a heart-warming excursion of four Solmar Foundation-ran facilities, is another way groups can be exposed to the organization's work and understand its values and achievements.
"What we look to create with these programs is a life-long affinity between group volunteers and donors with our foundation," said Ricardo Orozco, vice president of operations for Solmar Hotels & Resorts. "Our hope is to inspire those who choose Los Cabos as their vacation destination and Solmar as their preferred lodging provider to give back to a community that is driven by the tourism industry."
While the Solmar Foundation focuses on helping women and children living in poverty, the charity's efforts are as diverse as providing care for children with cancer, orphans, children with drug problems, seniors and those suffering from HIV. By coordinating the assistance from volunteer groups, private organizations, other public agencies and non-government entities, the Solmar Foundation is able to effectively target and impact those who need it the most.
Group activities organized by Solmar Foundation are free of charge. Administrative costs are paid by the developer, which allows for 100 percent of the donated funds and labor to go directly to those in need. Participants are encouraged to make small monetary contributions or donate gently used clothing.
Located on Baja California's most exclusive and private beach, Solmar Hotels & Resorts offers guests privacy while still being able to enjoy the excitement of downtown Cabo San Lucas.
