According to Matthew Martin, director of the two hotels, the iCare3 initiative is important because the three organizations that will benefit have in one way or another affected most, if not all, Guam residents.
According to Lt. Gov. Ray Tenorio, who was present at the launch ceremony, each of the organizations really tugs at people’s heart strings. “Who wouldn’t want to get behind anything that would allow a child to live his or her dream?” Tenorio asked.
Make-A-Wish Guam offers a once-in-a-lifetime wish to children from Guam and the CNMI who are terminally ill. Children’s wishes range from a trip to Disneyland to something as simple as receiving an iPad, said Victor Camacho, executive director of Make-A-Wish Guam. “The children’s wishes are things that we often take for granted,” Camacho said. Guam Cancer Care provides care to individuals afflicted by cancer by providing free professional support services to any Guam resident affected by cancer. Guam USO offers hospitality services to military troops and their families, in an effort to maintain morale.
In addition to the two hotels, H2O Spa and Grill n Curry restaurant, both located inside Aqua Suites, are also participating in the initiative. Sentry Hospitality, which owns the two hotels, launched the initiative with a a $1,000 donation to each of the organizations during the launch ceremony on 11 March 2015.
Edmund Lebita, USO Guam program manager, said his organization is proud to be a recipient of the donations. Martin said he hopes other businesses will join and that members of the community will take the iCare3 pledge to help support the three organizations.
