Dare To Explore Foundation
Social responsibility and social engagement is of fundamental importance to Hotel BLOOM!. That’s why in 2011 we established the Dare To Explore Foundation. In only one year we were able to collect € 29.000.
The revenue of the water bottles that are sold in SmoodS produced € 13.000 which we donated to Water.org, an American nonprofit aid organization which goal it is to provide aid to developing countries that don’t have access to safe drinking water and sanitation.
The Internet vouchers we offer our hotel guests resulted in a revenue of € 16.000, which Hotel BLOOM! gave to SOS-Kinderdorpen, an international development organization which works to meet the needs and protect the interests and rights of children.
Together with SOS-Kinderdorpen we decided to invest the revenue of the Internet vouchers in a new photographic book by Jan Knops and art photographer Cuny Janssen called I don’t know why. The book documents pictures and monologues of 33 children in a village of SOS-Kinderdorpen in Belgium.
