Meaningful Vacations Start With The Ritz-Carlton, Tokyo Hotel's Volunteer Package

TOKYO--(Marketwire - Nov 16, 2011) - More and more, people are turning vacations into volunteer experiences across the world as a way to give back to local communities while discovering the culture and history of a leisure destination. To this end, The Ritz-Carlton, Tokyo has teamed up with Second Harvest Japan to offer travellers the Volunteering with Second Harvest Japan* package -- a powerful opportunity to make a meaningful contribution to Japanese citizens in need.

A six-hour volunteer experience, you will travel with one of our Tokyo hotel's employees, who will also join the volunteer effort and assist with language translation, to the Second Harvest Japan Akihabara location, which distributes food to soup kitchens, orphanages, emergency shelters and the homeless. Here, you'll assist with sorting food and the preparation of food supplies. Then, in the early afternoon, you will travel to Ueno Park to help with food distribution.

Available every Saturday through December 31, 2011, the Volunteering with Second Harvest Japan* package also includes overnight accommodation at The Ritz-Carlton hotel in Tokyo, a breakfast buffet for two, and a snack and bottled water.

So, the next time vacation plans are being made, consider making it meaningful, and book your hotel reservation in Tokyo at The Ritz-Carlton, and help families facing the reality of not knowing where their next meal will come from.
