CaribPR Wire, MIAMI, March 27, 2018: The Cable & Wireless Charitable Foundation has today announced a donation of US$25,000 to the community impact organization Curaçao Cares, thanks to the Foundation’s annual fundraising golf tournament.

The tournament – held in Curaçao in its 11th year and raising a total of US$125,000 for the Cable & Wireless Charitable Foundation – brought together over 90 participants made up of a variety of C&W’s technology, programing and administrative partners, and donors of the Foundation.

The donation from the Cable & Wireless Charitable Foundation will be used towards CURA DOET, the biggest volunteer effort in Curaçao. Celebrated annually in March, the DOET weekend unites people who serve their communities across cultural and geographical differences. The activity consists of two national days of service whereby people in the communities are encouraged to get out and do something to help local worthwhile causes and NGOs.

Since it was set up in 2013, CURA DOET has engaged more than 21,000 volunteers who have collectively participated in more than 100,000 hours of service. During CURA DOET, NGOs get an opportunity to spruce up their location and grounds, parks and schools get a makeover and elderly people and those with special needs are treated to a special day.

The announcement comes one week after the Foundation confirmed funding of over US$290,000 to go towards rebuilding and equipping five schools in the most badly impacted areas of the Caribbean, following last year’s hurricane season.

Gina Colesanti, Director of the Cable & Wireless Charitable Foundation, said: “We’re extremely proud to give back to the communities we serve, and worked with our local team on the ground to choose Curaçao Cares as the deserving beneficiary of this year’s annual fundraising golf tournament. We’re very fortunate that we continue to have the assistance of C&W’s technology, programming and administrative partners, who support the annual fundraising event through their participation and financial contribution.”

The annual charity golf event has previously been held in Trinidad and Tobago, Barbados, Jamaica, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, St. Kitts and Nevis and Panama. Last year, in Panama, the funds were donated to three institutions that focus on supporting children: the Pro Niños de Darien, the San José de Malambo Orphanage and the Olga Sinclair Foundation. A variety of youth-centered programs have benefited from the tournament’s fundraising efforts over the years, including the SOS Children’s Home in Jamaica, the Sunshine Achievement Center for under-privileged children in Barbados and the Rainbow Rescue team in Trinidad. The tournament has also helped fund orphanages in the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico, and previously funded support programs for the Wilhelmina Fonds Breast Cancer Center in Curaçao.

Lysaye de Windt of Curaçao Cares, said: “As Curaçao Cares continues to grow in its fifth year, partnerships are vital to its success. This generous contribution will help us fulfill our mission of cultivating active citizenship and creating opportunities for individuals to contribute their time, skills, talents and resources towards positive social development, and to connect communities and transform lives. On behalf of the entire Curaçao Cares team, we would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the Cable & Wireless Charitable Foundation.”

The Cable & Wireless Charitable Foundation was set up by C&W Communications initially as response to the humanitarian crisis caused by devastating hurricanes in 2017. The Foundation is increasingly the company’s platform for advancing social development, as it strives to fulfil its mission of connecting communities and transforming lives, by funding education and empowerment programs across the Caribbean and Latin America.

La Fundación de Caridad de Cable & Wireless le realiza una donación a la organización con impacto en la comunidad Curaçao Cares

CaribPR Wire, MIAMI, FL, March 27, 2018: La Fundación de Caridad de Cable & Wireless anunció hoy una donación de US$25.000 a la organización con impacto en la comunidad Curaçao Cares gracias a su torneo de golf de recaudación de fondos anual.

El torneo –que se llevó a cabo en Curazao en su undécimo año y que recaudó un total de US$125.000 para la Fundación de Caridad de Cable & Wireless– reunió a más de 90 participantes de una variedad de socios de tecnología, programación, administración de C&W y donantes de la Fundación.

La donación de la Fundación de Caridad de Cable & Wireless se utilizará para CURA DOET, las tareas de voluntariado más grandes en Curazao. Celebrado anualmente en marzo, el fin de semana DOET reúne a personas que sirven a sus comunidades en diferentes zonas geográficas y culturales. El evento consiste en dos días de servicio nacional en el que se alienta a las personas de la comunidad a salir y hacer algo para ayudar en causas locales que valgan la pena y ONGs.

Desde su comienzo en 2013, CURA DOET ha reunido a más de 21.000 voluntarios que, en forma colectiva, han ayudado con más de 100.000 horas de su tiempo. Durante CURA DOET, las ONGs tendrán la oportunidad de que se realicen tareas de limpieza, los parques y las escuelas podrán ser reestructurados y las personas mayores y aquellas con necesidades especiales poder brindarles un día especial.

Este anuncio se realiza una semana después de que la Fundación confirmara el aporte de fondos de más de US$290.000 para la reconstrucción y el equipamiento de cinco escuelas en las zonas más afectadas del Caribe luego de la temporada de huracanes del año pasado.

Gina Colesanti, Directora de la Fundación de Caridad de Cable & Wireless, dijo: “Estamos extremadamente orgullosos de retribuirles a las comunidades en las que servimos, por lo que trabajamos con nuestro equipo local para elegir a Curaçao Cares como el beneficiario del torneo de golf de recaudación de fondos anual. Somos muy afortunados por continuar contando con la asistencia de los socios de tecnología, programación y administración de C&W, que respaldan el evento de recaudación de fondos anual a través de su participación y contribución anual.”

En otras oportunidades, este evento de golf de caridad anual se realizó en Trinidad y Tobago, Barbados, Jamaica, Puerto Rico, República Dominicana, San Kitts y Nevis y Panamá. El año pasado, en Panamá, los fondos fueron donados a tres instituciones que se enfocan en ayudar a los niños: Pro Niños de Darien, el Hogar San José de Malambo y la Fundación Olga Sinclair. Los fondos recaudados gracias a este torneo han beneficiado, a lo largo de los años, a diferentes programas centrados en los jóvenes, entre los que se encuentran el Hogar SOS Children en Jamaica, el Sunshine Achievement Center para niños necesitados en Barbados y el Rainbow Rescue en Trinidad. Además, el torneo ha colaborado con la fundación de orfanatos en República Dominicana y Puerto Rico y, anteriormente, con la fundación de programas de respaldo para el Wilhelmina Fonds Breast Cancer Center en Curazao.

Lysaye de Windt, de Curaçao Cares, dijo: “A medida que Curaçao Cares continúa su crecimiento en su quinto año, las asociaciones son vitales para su éxito. Esta generosa contribución nos ayudará a cumplir nuestra misión de cultivar la ciudadanía activa y crear oportunidades para que las personas aporten su tiempo, sus habilidades, sus talentos, sus recursos al desarrollo social positivo y conecten comunidades y transformen vidas. En nombre de todo el equipo de Curaçao Cares, queremos agradecerle de corazón a la Fundación de Caridad de Cable & Wireless.”

Introducing The Breitling Explorers Squad With Bertrand Piccard, David De Rothschild, And Inge Solheim

FacebookTwitterGoogle+Share

MIAMI, March 27, 2018 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — Breitling is proud to announce another squad. This imaginative idea involves creating three-person groups (the squads) whose members are all recognized masters in their respective professions. Rooted in the dynamic values of Breitling – action, purpose, and pioneering spirit – this concept focuses on the bond created between people brought together by a shared endeavor and common goal and will be presented in Breitling’s advertising campaigns.

“At Breitling, we believe in the power of a team, the strength of a group, and the mutual identification of a common target, which ultimately leads to success,” says Georges Kern, the CEO of Breitling. He adds, ”We aim for authenticity, credibility, and honesty for our brand and our products, as well as in our interactions with our clients. The same applies for each of the squads. We are going to launch several of them, from sports to the arts, covering different areas of activity linked to our thematic worlds: air, sea, and land. Our squad members – world-famous or not – will be absolute masters in their respective fields. I am very much looking forward to seeing them soon, going on individual or shared missions in one of the Breitling environments.”

It Is Our Pleasure to Announce Today Our Squad of Three Outstanding Individuals: The Breitling Explorers Squad Corporate social responsibility is one of Breitling’s central tenets and we believe in the power of “doing well in doing good.” We aim to become carbon neutral and engage in environmental missions such as our recent engagement with Ocean Conservancy, a non-governmental organization dedicated to leading the global fight for a healthy ocean and clean beaches. Our past demonstrates that we have always been involved in exploring new fields of activity and we will continue to do so in the future – together with our squads. Today, we have the great pleasure of unveiling another squad of three outstanding individuals, the Breitling Explorers Squad, and to announce the following members:

Bertrand Piccard

It is in Bertrand Piccard’s DNA to achieve the impossible. Part of a legendary dynasty of explorers and scientists who conquered the heights and depths of our planet, he made history by accomplishing the first ever non-stop around-the-world balloon flight on board Breitling Orbiter 3. With his vision of demonstrating the immense potential of renewable energies, he then initiated the Solar Impulse challenge, and circumnavigated the globe in an airplane powered only by the sun. A pioneer of clean technologies, his goal is now to select 1000 economically profitable solutions to protect the environment. With his dual identity as a medical doctor and a serial explorer, Bertrand Piccard has become an influential voice as a forward-thinking leader for progress and sustainability.

David de Rothschild

David de Rothschild is an environmentalist, adventurer and the Founder of the Sculpt the Future Foundation, a group that uses exploration, adventure and storytelling as a way to give nature a voice. Driven by his curiosity for the natural world, he has ventured to some of the most remote and fragile ecosystems on our planet, bringing attention and innovative solutions to urgent global environmental issues. David was the youngest Briton ever to reach both geographical poles and in 2010, he set sail in a fully recyclable catamaran kept afloat by 12,500 reclaimed plastic bottles. He and his crew sailed 8000 miles across the Pacific to alert the world to the devastating effects of single-use plastics. David has been recognized as a United Nations Climate Hero, a National Geographic Emerging Explorer, a Global Cleanup Ambassador, and a WEF Young Global Leader.

Inge Solheim

Inge Solheim is considered one of the world’s leading guides. He has many years of professional experience in guiding, exploring, and consulting in the most extreme environments on Earth. In 2005, he took part in Blizzard, BBC’s reconstruction of Scott’s and Amundson’s race to the South Pole. Inge was the expedition leader for Prince Harry’s charity Walking with the Wounded. He guided the Prince and wounded soldiers to the North Pole in 2011 and to the South Pole in 2013. Millions of people saw the inspiring BBC and ITV series. Inge was producer for North Pole Ice Airport and has been head of safety and logistics on numerous nature and adventure TV productions.

Introducing the Breitling Surfers Squad With Kelly Slater, Stephanie Gilmore, and Sally Fitzgibbons – Together With a Thrilling New Partnership

FacebookTwitterGoogle+Share

MIAMI, March 26, 2018 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — Breitling recently announced its squad concept. This imaginative idea involves creating three-person groups (the squads) whose members – all true masters in their respective professions – forge strong bonds and work together toward a common goal. Their shared endeavors will be presented in Breitling’s advertising campaigns. Breitling is now delighted to reveal the members of its Surfers Squad, who, like their Explorers Squad counterparts, reflect the brand’s dynamic values: action, purpose, and pioneering spirit.

KELLY SLATER

Breitling’s connection to the oceans is part of its extraordinary legacy. Its diver’s watches, including the iconic Superocean, are among the world’s most highly regarded. The amazing Surfers Squad and new partners, who are completely committed to maintaining clean oceans and beaches, are perfect expressions of our passion for water, which, along with air and land, are Breitling’s thematic pillars.

As Georges Kern, the CEO of Breitling, points out:

“We believe in the power of a team, the strength of a group, and the mutual identification of a common target, which ultimately leads to success. With our squad of three champion surfers, who are also some of the world’s leading advocates for the health of our oceans and beaches, we have a formidable team and some amazing shared goals.”

We are pleased to unveil the three impressive masters of the waves who are the members of our Breitling Surfers Squad:

Stephanie Gilmore
Australia’s Stephanie Gilmore is one of the true stars of surfing. She is a professional surfer and has won the World Championships on the Women’s ASP World Tour six times. Stephanie’s surfing career got off to an early start. By the time she was 17, she was entering international events. She qualified for the Women’s ASP World Tour in 2007 and went on to win the first of her six World Championships title. She was inducted into the Surfers’ Hall of Fame and won the Laureus World Action Sportsperson of the Year Award in 2010.

Sally Fitzgibbons
Australian Sally Fitzgibbons was a prolific athlete in a range of sports but had her first significant professional surfing results at the age of 14, when she became the youngest surfer to win an ASP Pro Junior event. She continued to set records throughout her junior years, with important wins in Australasia, Brazil, and Portugal, where she won the first of two World Junior Championships titles. Sally qualified for the World Surfing Tour in 2009, finishing in the top five a total of nine times, and has been runner-up in the World Championships three times, achieving ten WSL World Tour victories.

Kelly Slater
American Kelly Slater is the most successful surfer of all time. He won the World Surf League Championship a record 11 times, including five consecutive titles between 1994 and 1998. Impressively, he was both the youngest champion at the age of 20 and the oldest at the age of 39, representing a record of longevity and performance that would be remarkable in any sport.

Breitling’s New Partnership with Sustainable Apparel Manufacturer Outerknown
Building on the environmental engagement and commitment of the Explorers Squad, we are happy to strengthen the engagement with surfing icon Kelly Slater and Outerknown, a clothing company committed to improving conditions for people and the planet. The collaboration with Outerknown was perfectly natural for Breitling, which, earlier in the year, started working with Ocean Conservancy, supporting their noble fight against the pollution of the planet’s oceans and beaches. Outerknown also worked with Ocean Conservancy on their #ITSNOTOK initiative, launched in 2017 to raise awareness of the massive environmental problem of marine trash and to inspire people to take action to clean up the oceans.

As part of its collaboration with Outerknown, Breitling will be launching shared products and designs reflecting the engagement with Kelly Slater at the end of 2018. Their straps and packaging will be jointly designed and produced by Breitling and Outerknown, respecting Fair Trade principles and using only environmentally friendly, sustainable, and recycled materials.

Introducing The Breitling Squad Concept, The Breitling Cinema Squad With Brad Pitt, Charlize Theron, Adam Driver, And Daniel Wu

FacebookTwitterGoogle+Share

MIAMI, March 24, 2018 /PRNewswire/ – Breitling is pleased to announce the gifted actors who are the members of the first Breitling squads. This imaginative idea involves creating three-person groups (the squads) whose members are all recognized masters in their respective professions. Rooted in the dynamic values of Breitling – action, purpose, and pioneering spirit –  this concept focuses on the bond created between people brought together by a shared endeavor and common goal and will be presented in Breitling’s advertising campaigns.

“At Breitling, we believe in the power of a team, the strength of a group, and the mutual identification of a common target, which ultimately leads to success,” says Georges Kern, the CEO of Breitling. He adds, “We aim for authenticity, credibility, and honesty for our brand and our products, as well as in our interactions with our clients. The same applies for each of the squads. We are going to launch several of them, from sports to the arts, covering different areas of activity linked to our thematic worlds: air, sea, and land. Our squad members – world-famous or not – will be  absolute masters in their respective fields. I am very much looking forward to seeing them soon, going on individual or shared challenges in one of the Breitling environments.”

It Is Our Pleasure to Announce Today the Breitling Cinema Squads, with an Absolutely Stellar Cast

Breitling shares a great deal of DNA with moviemakers. First of all, like a good film, our watches tell stories that connect people to something larger than themselves. A great script can take its audience to any place on earth, or even beyond. And Breitling watches are made to perform brilliantly on land, in the air, or on and below the water’s surface. There is another clear parallel: movies are the stuff of dreams, showing us that anything is possible. In our modest way, we know that a Breitling watch is also aspirational – a dream worth achieving. Breitling watches have had remarkable roles on the wrists of some of our most beloved actors, including Sean Connery as James Bond in Thunderball in 1965. Today, we are taking our relationship with the cinematic world to a new level as we introduce the four outstanding actors who are the members of the Breitling Cinema Squads: Brad Pitt, Charlize Theron, Adam Driver, and Daniel Wu. They will be appearing soon in different squad combinations and settings as part of Breitling’s new campaigns. With an all-star cast, the Breitling Cinema Squads bring the excitement and drama of the big screen to a dynamic, creative new partnership with Breitling.

Brad Pitt

Brad Pitt, one of the world’s best and most versatile actors, is also a successful film producer with his company Plan B Entertainment. In the past few years, Pitt has won an Academy Award as a producer of 12 Years a Slave, a film directed by Steve McQueen, and led a fiveman tank crew in David Ayer’s World War Two Epic Fury. He also played a supporting role in The Big Short and the lead in War Machine – a provocative satirical comedy from David Michôd for Netflix –, both of which he also produced with Plan B Entertainment. In 2016, Pitt starred opposite Marion Cotillard in Robert Zemeckis’ Allied. His next role is in James Gray’s Ad Astra, and he is also set to star in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood alongside Leonardo DiCaprio.

Charlize Theron

Charlize Theron is an Academy Award–winning actress who has built a remarkable film career by taking on a wide variety of roles. She has created an impressive body of work that includes her Oscar and Golden Globe Award–winning portrayal of serial killer Aileen Wuornos in Monster. She also received Academy Award and Golden Globe Award nominations for her performance in North Country, and a Golden Globe Award nomination for Young Adult. Theron also has an impressive track record as a movie and television producer. She is the founder of the Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project, a charitable organization dedicated to fighting the HIV crisis in sub-Saharan Africa.

Adam Driver

Adam Driver most recently starred in Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Logan Lucky. He made his feature-film debut in J. Edgar, and, in the years since, has established himself as one of America’s most versatile actors with performances in Silence, Frances Ha, Midnight Special, Inside Llewyn Davis, Lincoln, and Paterson, among others.

His next roles are in Noah Baumbach’s new feature and Spike Lee’s Black Klansman. He has also garnered rave reviews on stage and, in 2019, will appear in the first Broadway revival of Burn This, directed by Michael Mayer.

Driver is a Juilliard School graduate and a former US Marine.

Daniel Wu

Daniel Wu is an American-born, Hong Kong–based actor, director, and producer who, since his film debut in 1998, has been featured in over 60 films. Since 2015, he has starred as Sunny in the popular AMC martial-arts drama series Into the Badlands, which he also produces. After graduating from the University of Oregon, Daniel traveled to Hong Kong in 1997, where he was cast in his first movie. He has won numerous acting awards, and his directorial debut, The Heavenly Kings, earned him the Best New Director award at the Hong Kong Film Awards and the Chinese Film Media Awards.  Follow the #breitlingsquad at #squadonamission

The Ultimate Pilot’s Chronograph, Reimagined For Air, Land, And Sea Chronomat B01 Chronograph 44

FacebookTwitterGoogle+Share

MIAMI, March 23, 2018 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ – Breitling has launched a stunning interpretation of the Chronomat, featuring a satin-brushed case presented on a stainless-steel Pilot bracelet and equipped with the extraordinary Breitling Manufacture Caliber 01.

THE BREITLING CHRONOMAT B01 CHRONOGRAPH 44.

With a screwed stainless-steel caseback and a ratcheted unidirectional rotating bezel, the Chronomat B01 Chronograph 44 is equal to any adventure. Its new understated satin-brushed case lends this timepiece a subtle contemporary flair that makes it the perfect partner for a night on the town.

This exceptional chronograph has been created in two versions, one with a Blackeye blue dial and the other with a Blackeye gray dial. The hands and the distinctive hour markers are coated with Super-LumiNova®, making them easy to read in all lighting conditions.

Both versions boast contrasting small second, 30- minute, and 12-hour chronograph subdials, an indication of the Breitling Manufacture Caliber 01 movement inside. The dial, which has a date window ideally positioned between 4 and 5 o’clock, is clearly legible through a convex sapphire crystal with anti- reflective coating on both sides.

With its dual-acting ball-bearing rotor, the Breitling Manufacture Caliber 01 has a power reserve in excess of 70 hours. You could take this watch off on Thursday night for a long weekend (not that you would want to) and it would still be ready for action and keeping perfect time when the new week begins.

The Chronomat B01 Chronograph 44 is water- resistant to 50 bar (500 meters). As with all Breitling wristwatches, it is a COSC-certified chronometer.

Continuing a Proud Tradition

While the Chronomat has long been established as the watch of choice for aviators, it has found a passionate following among people whose adventures take place not only in the air, but also on land and at sea – above and below the surface. You will understand why the moment you see this stunning timepiece on your wrist.
