Guests Give Back

For a five-star experience with a philanthropic impact, mindful travelers can participate in the new Malama Hawaii Volunteer Experience through the Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea. “Malama means ‘to care for,’ and this program is perfect for guests that are not only interested in leaving Maui a better place than when they arrived but also finding a deep meaningful connection to this very special place we call home,” says Four Seasons Resort Cultural Ambassador “Aunty Wendy” Tuivaioge. The three-hour program includes a training session, hands-on work with artifacts, and a tour of a historic site or museum. The reward for participation? A $250 resort credit for a current stay and gift certificate for a future one-night accommodation in an ocean-view room. fourseasons.com

Make a Wish

In honor of World Wish Day, homebuilding company etco Homes launched The Wishing Tree at Terraces at the Ambassador Gardens, a community of luxury townhomes near Old Pasadena, where residents, locals, and visitors can express their hopes and dreams for the year ahead while giving back to the community. Local businesses—including The Langham, Bokaos, Finn + Willow, Il Fornaio, Lather, Sage Vegan Bistro, and Twigzz—also participated by having wish tags at their locations. For every wish tag hung, $5 was donated to Make-A-Wish Greater Los Angeles. Even Pasadena Mayor Victor Gordo stopped by to support the cause. “We’ve been through so much in Pasadena, the state, the country, and the world,” he said. “This is a moment for all of us to take a step back and create a little bit of hope for children in need.” pasadenaperfected.com/wishday
