Life can get busy very quickly when we’re juggling work and everything in between. Oftentimes, we get so caught up in the whirlwind of things happening around us that we forget to take time out for self-care.

We’re not talking about buying yourself a bouquet of flowers (although you can certainly do that, too). Instead, there’s a way to get some R&R and simultaneously support a special cause at Shangri-La Hotel, Vancouver.

The five-star hotel has teamed up with local charity, One Girl Can, to create The Philanthropic Stay, a heartfelt package that will inspire you to finally take the staycation you’ve been dreaming about for months.

When you book The Philanthropic Stay at Shangri-La Hotel, Vancouver any time from March 1 to December 20, 2020, $50 of every night booked will be donated to help girls in the most marginalized regions of Sub-Saharan Africa. 

Unfamiliar with the work carried out by One Girl Can? The Canadian charity impacts gender equality by empowering girls in Kenya through education and working to break the cycle of poverty.

In 2008, the organization was founded by South African–born CEO, Lotte Davis, who recognized the mistreatment and lack of opportunities for women. Today, One Girl Can offers a cycle of empowerment that supports a girl from the time she leaves primary school right through to the day she finds meaningful employment.

“We are so thrilled Shangri-La is supporting our cause to end gender inequality and raise funds to educate bright girls living in extreme poverty,” says Davis.

“If we are ever going to truly move the needle on gender imbalance, we will need to help lift up women in underdeveloped countries, as well as in our own.”

A generous donation to One Girl Can isn’t the only thing that makes The Philanthropic Stay the perfect gift from you to you.

Upon arrival at the hotel, you’ll be treated to a divine welcome amenity from Shangri-La Vancouver’s pastry chef. In the mornings, you can sleep and ignore the brunch rush; daily breakfast for two is included.

Guests will also be gifted Vitruvi essential oil amenities, an AG Hair gift bag, valet parking, and 20% off at CHI, The Spa at Shangri-La, Vancouver. FYI, the spa is a hidden sanctuary in the heart of the city and the treatments are blissful. Plus, each luxe guestroom at the hotel has a deep-soaking tub for continued relaxation post-treatments!

To further celebrate your experience, add a set of exclusive KIP. X Shangri-La pyjamas, designed exclusively for Shangri-La Hotel, Vancouver to your booking. You’ll have them as a wonderful memory of your stay afterwards.
