From the shores of the Caribbean and Mexico up to the North Pole, Paradise by Marriott is spreading holiday cheer this season with its “Letters to Santa’’ charity initiative. Consumers of all ages can participate by visiting https://www.paradisebymarriott.com/letter-to-santa.php to write a letter to Santa, and for every letter received, the Latin America/Caribbean resort cluster will donate $1 to World Central Kitchen, up to $1 million, changing the world through the eyes of a chef.
Founded by José Andrés after the devastating 2010 earthquake in Haiti, World Central Kitchen uses the power of food to empower communities and strengthen economies.
Andrés is a Spanish-American[ chef often credited for bringing the “small plates’’ concept to America. He is chair of the advisory board for LA Kitchen, a social enterprise in Los Angeles, California that works to reduce food waste, provide job training.
