#StayHomeWithAscott

Share your stay-home cooking moments and help support children impacted by COVID-19

Wherever your home is at this moment, we would like you to join us in staying home to be socially responsible and do good by pledging to #StayHomeWithAscott 

As you embark on culinary adventures in the comfort and safety of your home, be part of The Ascott Limited’s (Ascott) global activity by capturing and posting these stay-home cooking/baking moments on Instagram. CapitaLand Hope Foundation (CHF), the philanthropic arm of Ascott’s parent company CapitaLand Limited, will donate US$10 for every eligible pledge with the #StayHomeWithAscott hashtag from 20 April to 4 May 2020. The donation will go towards Save the Children’s global food security and assistance programmes, serving to support about 12,000 underprivileged children affected by COVID-19 in various parts of the world. For every pledged donation of US$10, it goes towards providing food for a child over 20 days. 

Starting with a base donation of US$100,000 from CHF, we are rallying the global community to reach for the US$200,000 donation target with your pledges. Here is how you can #StayHomeWithAscott:

Be sure to set your Instagram profile to public! This activity is open to everyone, whether you’re staying at your own home or at our serviced residences and hotels.

PLEDGE TO #STAYHOMEWITHASCOTT

Home – your safest destination

The Ascott Limited’s serviced residences and hotels in over 30 countries globally offer more than just lodging. As an international lodging provider for both long-stay and transient travellers, for business and leisure, many of our guests call Ascott their home away from home and count on us to provide security and comfort. 

Ascott hopes to rally the global community to #StayHomewithAscott and embark on culinary adventures in the comfort and safety of your home, something you can do too if you are staying at our properties.

Whether you are an Ascott guest or staying at your own home, we are enabling everyone to stand united to fight COVID-19.

#StayHomeWithAscott is part of Ascott’s community support to fight against COVID-19. For more information on how Ascott is providing lodging support to provide safe homes to the global community during this period, click here to read news release.
