Pack for a Purpose: Barbados

Little Arches Hotel, an adults-only 10 room boutique hotel and spa located "on a south coast hideaway bay...adjacent to the flawless white sands of Enterprise Beach" on the Caribbean isle of Barbados in Christ Church, has stolen a piece of my heart. It's a good thing I have a lot to give.
Not just because there's a rockin' wrought-iron chandelier hanging over the pool, and not just because the rooms are luxurious, cozy & sublimely decorated, and not because the bartender at their busy Zagat-ranked restaurant Café Luna makes a mean rum punch; but mostly because Little Arches is currently the only property in Barbados that is a lodging partner with Pack for a Purpose, a grassroots organization that encourages travelers to donate supplies (in just five easy steps!) for those in need. Small space. Little effort. Big impact.
The very friendly Assistant Hotel Manager Emma Andrews (pictured below) accepted my donation with enthusiasm informing me that the school supplies will be given to The Variety Club who will in turn disseminate to the schools where needed. And just today, I received a delightful thank you email from General Manager Sandra Edwards (no relation to Emma). *Blushing*
It's true that there is no shortage of properties in Barbados for your holiday needs, but when it comes down to it, nothing beats a property with a little extra heart.
