The Strand Hotel NYC has partnered with SK Energy shots, an energy shot conceived by one of music industry's eminent artists, entrepreneurs and humanitarians, Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson. 50 Cent created SK Energy shots to be a better source of energy, leaving out common controversial industry ingredients like taurine, guarana and ginseng and adding in beneficial ingredients like antioxidants and vitamins. Every energy shot sold provides a meal to a hungry child through the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP). To date, SK Energy Shots, reports that it has provided millions of meals through the WFP. 50 Cent and Chris Clarke have set a goal of providing over 1 billion meals within the next five years and are well on their way to achieve this goal. The partnership of The Strand and SK Energy was announced by Chris Clarke, Founder and CEO of SK Energy and John Loizos, General Manager of the Strand Hotel NYC.
The hotel now offers SK Energy Shots in each of its 176 guestrooms and guests have the option of receiving a 'wake-up' call from Mr. Jackson himself. The Strand Hotel will host a series of events at the Top of the Strand, sponsored by SK Energy shots. These events are meant to generate awareness of not just the energy shot, but the greater mission of SK of fighting world hunger. Co-founder 50 Cent will help support these SK Energy events.
"When the mission of SK Energy was made known to me, it was clear that as a hotel organization we were in the unique position to help," said John Loizos, General Manager, The Strand Hotel NYC. "As hosts to travelers from all over the world, we are spreading the word of the plight of human beings in underdeveloped nations. An opportunity to step up and impact the life of a child and family is an amazing feeling. Not to mention, we pride ourselves on the brands and products we offer our clients and SK Energy Shots are better than other energy products out there because they have great ingredients like
antioxidants and vitamins and they really work."
