When Marriot’s TownePlace Suites hotels asks you to make your bed, it’s not because they are cutting back on staff, or have been talking to your mom. From now until November 1st, 2010, every time you make a virtual bed found on the new Facebook app, Make A Bed, Marriot will donate $2 to American Red Cross Disaster Relief.
Make A Bed is the second part of Marriot’s new “real giving” program serving those in need throughout the United States. The first event was during the program’ inaugural year, ending with 1,000 blankets given away.
Marriot also wants to reward those that participate in the program. After making a bed, you can register to win a Flip Video Camera. And if you add the app to your Facebook profile and get four friends to participate, you could win a 7-night stay at any TownePlace Suites location.
