Guests at select Sandals Resorts and Beaches Resorts can now literally light up the Caribbean sky with the release of awe-inspiring sky lanterns through a new Sandals Foundation initiative known as a “Celebration of Caring”.  Created by the Sandals Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Sandals Resorts International, the program was developed as a creative means to raise money for local community, environmental and education programs. Guests can purchase an elegant paper sky lantern, all of which are environmentally-friendly, for $10 US; they are then invited to join a mass “Celebration of Caring” sky lantern release at a dedicated times and locations weekly at each resort.  

Heidi Clarke, Director of Programs for the Sandals Foundation, explained “the Sandals Foundation coined this initiative to provide guests with an opportunity to give back through a beautiful gesture.  The program has really taken off with guests eager to get their hands on these unique lanterns and they have been raving about the experience afterward.”  

The “Celebration of Caring” initiative launched two weeks ago at Sandals Whitehouse European Village & Spa and has since released nearly 160 sky lanterns into the atmosphere.  Resort guests, Kim Anderson and Peter Broughall, who participated in a sky lantern release event, noted “the Sandals Foundation has created a wonderful experience while raising money for a great cause.” Other guests, including John and Sharla McBride, were deeply touched by the gesture and said, “not only did the lanterns light up the sky, they utterly lit up our hearts for the children who benefit from the foundation.”

Most recently, the “Celebration of Caring” has expanded to Jamaica’s north coast, where guests of both Beaches Boscobel Resort & Golf Club and Sandals Grand Riviera Beach & Villa Golf Resort can now participate in the fundraiser. Thus far, close to $2,500 US has been raised for charity through this initiative.
