WHERE IT ALL STARTED

Giving Bag is a multi-award winning amenity made for hotels and forward-thinking brands who care about making a difference, pushing the boundaries, and leaving a lasting impact on the world. We started in 2013 with one hotel partner and have grown to a dedicated network of impact driven hotels and brands in 15 countries around the globe. We connect hotels and travelers with amenities and experiences that make real impact in local communities.

Creating a network of impact driven travelers and hotels spanning across brands, geographies, and market segments, united by a common goal of giving back to local communities.

Since 2013, Giving Bag has been partnering with hotels around the globe, providing a full-service charitable amenity that not only excites guests, but also brings value to your local community, and your brand.

 

The idea came to Lilia and me after attending a conference in Las Vegas. There were too many conference giveaways and clothing to fit in the carry-on suitcase. We wanted to just leave the items in the room and hope that an employee would keep them. Having graduated from Cornell's School of Hotel Administration, we knew that if we just left the unwanted items in the room they would end up in the lost and found for 3-6 months even though there was no intention of claiming them.

 

It just didn't seem fair to anyone. It was a waste of hotel employees' time logging these items in the lost and found, and it was a waste of these perfectly good items that could benefit someone in need. 

 

Out of necessity, Giving Bag was created. Interest from hotels showed that people want a sustainable and charitable practice to give their items away, but a convenient method just didn't exist.

 

Giving Bag provides the operations to make this amenity a success. Along with Impact Hotels, we are bringing together the best, brightest, and most forward thinking hotels that focus on making the world a better place through impactful sustainable, eco-friendly, and human-centric initiatives.
