"Formidable" is a new joint action of the Freude herrscht Foundation and SWISSPEAK Resorts. The aim of the Freude herrscht Foundation is to enable every child to discover, through the beauty of our mountains, the virtues of an outdoor sporting activity. SWISSPEAK Resorts, created by the investment fund Mountain Resort Real Estate Fund SICAV, also wants every child to have the right to discover this magic with their parents.
Given the convergence of objectives, the Freude herrscht Foundation and SWISSPEAK Resorts have joined forces to set up this action which is close to their hearts.
Thus, "Formidable" is an action which consists in collecting funds to issue holiday vouchers which will be offered to Swiss families who meet the criteria for the grant and which will be welcomed by all Swiss accommodation providers who will join this action.
Initially, this action will target those who, during the Covid-19 pandemic, have constantly put themselves at the service of the community by exposing their own health. We are thinking here of the medical staff, those who ensured the supply and opening of the shops as well as those who worked in the shadows on a daily basis. This action allows
Subsequently, this action will be continued to promote the values that are dear to the initiators of the project and which are held by the mountain dwellers, namely humility, respect and solidarity.
Mission of the "Formidable" action
Facilitating access to mountain holidays for families and children
To promote the mountains, life in the mountains and the spirit of those who practise it and whose values are authenticity, solidarity, respect and loyalty.
In this particular time of pandemic with travel solutions largely reduced, holidays in Switzerland and especially in the mountains are an excellent solution to get back to the great outdoors without mass tourism. After confinement more than ever, holidaymakers must be able to find pleasant and affordable accommodation offering all the comforts of home or even more, with complete health security.
Because of this health crisis, a large number of families in Switzerland are having to give up their summer holidays, much to the regret of both adults and children. This is why the "Formidable" vouchers will enable these people to enjoy the great outdoors in the Alps at a lower cost.
In addition, to thank the people who braved the pandemic every day to protect their fellow citizens, we would also like to give them the benefit of these cheques. Valued at CHF 500.00 per family member, these "Formidable" cheques will be financed thanks to 80% of the funds raised by this action and 20% voluntary participation by the accommodation providers.
