The Nile Ritz-Carlton is embracing the holiday season by draping the humble wishes of orphans on their shimmering Christmas tree. In hopes their wishes will be granted, the hotel is accepting donations at their Tree Lighting Ceremony until the first week of the New Year.
We remember waking up on Christmas day to find the lights and ornaments on our tree looking extra colourful and dainty. We remember finding our Christmas presents stashed under the tree, and we unwrapped them, giggling, because we had already guessed what it was weeks before. Whether you celebrate or not, there is no denying that the holiday season sends warm and fuzzy vibes through your entire body.
The reality is, Egyptian orphans are often left heartbroken through this time of the year because they lack the love and care that many of us have been blessed with. Making it their mission, the Nile Ritz-Carlton has collected the whispers of both Muslim and Christian orphans, placed them on paper tags, and will hang them on their white wishing tree at their Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony on Friday December 16th. At the ceremony, the Nile Ritz-Carlton will be accepting donations, as well as any gifts you would like to give the children. The aim of the ceremony is to try and make the humble wishes of these orphans come true, and to invite them into our hearts as we move into the new year.
Also at the ceremony, families and children can enjoy complementary hot chocolate and cookies to get them into the holiday spirit. You can also capture happy snaps with Santa while listening to snug, heartwarming holiday classics.
Commencing on Friday, the ceremony is open to the public and will run until the first week of the New Year.
