CHENNAI, INDIA--(Marketwired - Sep 26, 2014) - As anyone who's ever helped another person knows, the joy of giving back often outweighs the excitement of receiving. Such logic has fueled the growth of India's DaanUtsav event (formerly known as the Joy of Giving Week), which inspires individuals and organizations to help those around them. This year, the Courtyard Chennai is doing exactly that with a number of activities designed to make a big impact on its community while lightening the hearts of those helping out.

Scheduled for October 2 to 8, 2014, the sixth-annual DaanUtsav inspires greatness among everyday people, as evidenced by this Chennai Airport hotel. One of the property's most impressive initiatives for DaanUtsav is the staff's commitment to donate one day's salary to the charitable organization, Marriott Home. Such personal sacrifice underscores the hotel's dedication to helping those who need it most -- children -- because Marriott Home works to provide education to underprivileged kids.

Further distinguishing itself from other Chennai hotels near U.S. Consulate, this property will support its staff's individual efforts and contribute financially to Marriott Home. The hotel will collect INR 20 from every bill at its Rhapsody and Paprika restaurants (which offer international and Italian cuisine, respectively) and then donate the sum to the charity.

But financial contributions are only the beginning of what this Chennai hotel in Anna Salai has planned. During the celebratory week, the hotel's team will also facilitate a career-development training program for the children at Marriott Home to help guide and inspire them in their education. Considering the property's prestige and success among hotels near Chennai's Egmore railway station, such insight has the potential to transform lives for the better.

The final event planned for DaanUtsav is for the hotel staff to channel their inner artists and beautify the Bindu Art School located in Bharathapuram, Chengalpet. The team will clean and paint the building, giving it the sort of refreshing update that helps students take pride in their school and focus on the work at hand. Such gifts may not be quantifiable but, like the rest of the hotel's contributions during the Joy of Giving Week, they benefit the giver and the recipient alike.
