I came across a new fundraiser from Global Volunteer Network Foundation. It's an easy and fun way to give back. The Eat So They Can campaign is slated for October 16th and 17th. Nationwide people will be hosting dinner parties for family and friends in the hopes of raising money for women and children in Africa, Asia and South America.
The funds will be split to help four different causes. You can decide where your funds go when you sign up to host a party.
Orphaned and Vulnerable Children
Funds raised for this cause will be used towards projects working with orphaned and vulnerable children around the world. By supporting this cause you will be giving children an opportunity to have a brighter future. Your funds will be used to support both immediate needs and sustainability projects at schools and orphanages.
Funds raised for this cause will be used to assist projects around the world that are working to empower and enable women. By supporting this cause you will be giving women an opportunity to have a brighter future for themselves and their families.
Funds raised for this cause will be used towards our work to end child and women trafficking. By supporting this cause you will be helping to create a social movement as well as supporting specific projects around the world that are working in this area.
Funds raised for this cause will be used towards our emergency relief work around the world. By supporting this cause you will be providing emergency assistance to the victims of emergencies, such as food, supplies and tents. Your will also be providing long-tem support through rebuilding and micro-finance projects.
I've registered to support this fundraiser and think I will make it an hors d'oeuvres and wine tasting. Guests will be asked to bring a donation of any amount to be forwarded to the GVN Foundation. Fun and thoughtful. Won't you join me in this cause?
