INDIAN WELLS, CA — 500,000 pounds of crayons end up in landfills each year, crayons that could be recycled to bring the joy of coloring to children in need. Hyatt Regency Indian Wells Resort & Spa is proud to announce their participation in The Crayon Initiative, a charitable organization that recycles and donates crayons to the Children’s Hospital Association.
Hyatt Regency Indian Wells Resort and Spa is a fun-filled desert destination with kid-friendly activities ranging from the exhilarating DesertPipe water ride to the endlessly entertaining Camp Hyatt. Each day little eyes light up as they are given a box of crayons at any one of the many restaurants and activities they visit. Wanting to extend the smiles past the resort, Hyatt Regency Indian Wells will be collecting all used crayons to send to The Crayon Initiative.
Too often crayons go from play to trash to landfill where they become a waxy wasteland. The Crayon Initiative intercepts used crayons and provides an eco-friendly way to give back to children who are in need of inspiration and normalcy while receiving care at their local children’s hospital. Carry on the colorful commitment to creativity by playing and dining at Hyatt Regency Indian Wells Resort and Spa where used crayons will go on to color another day.
“Give a child a piece of paper and a box of crayons and you will witness a whole new world unfold,” said Hyatt Regency Indian Wells Resort and Spa General Manager Doug Sears. “To be able to recycle our resorts crayons for another child to use to color outside the lines is a joy!”
Currently, The Crayon Initiative donates to thirty-five hospitals in twelve states. Bryan, the founder, hopes to be in all 220 children’s hospitals around the USA by next year. Folks can help by supporting establishments like Hyatt Regency Indian Wells that collect for The Crayon Initiative or by donating directly. Each crayon and cent donated goes to help brighten a child’s world as they receive in hospital care.
Spread out over 45 desert acres, Hyatt Regency Indian Wells offers a wonderful variety of leisure pursuits. Two championship golf courses, tennis, family, kids and adults-only swimming pools, private poolside cabanas, and a deluxe spa are just a few ways to enjoy this full-service desert resort. If that’s not enough, the newest guest rooms offer a fresh perspective on this retreat. A clean new color palette is brightened with pops of teal and yellow. Spacious accommodations seem even grander with their expansive views taking in the bright golf greens, sandy desert mountains and brilliant blue skies.
