With its ‘Community Footprints’ programme, The Ritz-Carlton has a legacy of extraordinary service that extends beyond the care and comfort offered to its guests and into to the communities that the Ritz-Carlton Ladies and Gentlemen call home. This year, The Ritz-Carlton Shenzhen is combining its Community Footprints efforts with another Ritz-Carlton tradition, the Christmas Gingerbread House.

In the meantime, Mr. Xieping, Shenzhen Min Ai Disabled Children’s Welfare Center President and the 14 children from Min Ai Center, took part in the activity.
Then from November 23 to December 30, participating hotel staff, guests and community members who wish to donate to the cause can purchase gingerbread bricks for RMB 88 each, in which participants can decorate with special Christmas wishes before each brick is used in the construction a unique, life-sized gingerbread house in the hotel’s lobby.
