"I am very proud of the partnership Barclays has with Unicef. Unicef is a key player in providing for children who find it hard to get access to education. Unicef's work is tremendously important in giving children a chance of a brighter future."
Marcus Agius, Group Chairman of Barclays

"Over the nearly 15 years of Starwood’s Check Out for Children partnership, guests and associates at participating hotels have raised US$ 22 million for Unicef globally. This has enabled the vaccination of more than one million children against six potentially fatal diseases and saved their lives. That's exactly what our partnership with Unicef is all about.

"We look forward to working with Unicef for many years to come to raise further funds and give vulnerable children around the world a chance in life.”
Roeland Vos, President, Starwood Hotels & Resorts, Europe, Africa & Middle East
