Over one million bottles of Thankyou water will be distributed to Quest Apartment Hotel guests this year, launching the global consumer movement’s first accommodation partnership.
Through the provision of bottled Thankyou water across all Australian properties, Quest Franchisees and guests will raise money for life changing projects in India, Bangladesh, Vietnam, Timor Leste, Tanzania and Zimbabwe.
For the next 12 months, guests will receive a complimentary bottle of Thankyou water at the beginning of their stay, and be encouraged to purchase additional bottles to support developing nations gaining access to clean water, food, health and sanitation facilities.
Announcing the partnership, Quest CEO Zed Sanjana said it was the first national initiative of this type for the business, and the company was determined to support a program that would inspire and educate guests, with the potential to make a real difference.
“We know that most of our guests have a strong social conscience, and would like to partner with us in making a positive difference in the world,” he said.
“The majority of guests purchase water when they stay at our properties, and so the Thankyou water partnership made sense to us as a way to make a significant impact, simply by swapping our existing bottled water supplier to Thankyou.”
With 7,500 rooms across Quest’s Australian properties, the company has estimated it is likely to provide donations from the sale of around 1.8 million bottles of water, impacting more than 2,000 people in developing nations.
Thankyou co-founder and MD, Daniel Flynn is excited by Quest’s decision to stock Thankyou products.
“This a huge win for Thankyou and our goal to eradicate global poverty. We love what Quest is about and what’s exciting is that in the first year of stocking Thankyou water in their hotels, Quest will fund an estimated 2000 people with access to safe water. We can’t wait to see that number grow and grow as our partnership continues into the future,” said Mr Flynn.
