*Like philanthropy but better
It's quite simple – the team organise brilliantly fun parties that cultivate collaboration for social change.
Three selected, inspirational social entrepreneurs share their stories and break down how they would spend £1,000. Then between a crowd of creative curious hearts, the aim is to help each project reach that target. There is an opportunity to ask questions, chat to the entrepreneurs and mix in some drinks and merriment with networking (or friend-making). The beauty of crowdfunding is that whether you’re a student, investor, advertising guru, chef, clown, events producer or entrepreneur, you can contribute either funds or time in collaboration with others, amplifying your personal capacity to…well…kinda, sorta, a little bit, change the world. There’s a £10 minimum donation to any one of the three projects. Choices, choices, choices…
Yes people! The sun, the caipirinhas, the bossa nova, the street art, the beautiful people, the delicious food… FESTA DE FILANTHROPY* is where to get involved - hold on to you havianas! Join us 7pm, WEDNESDAY 11TH JUNE at the magical SKIP GARDEN, Handyside Street, off York Way, London, United Kingdom. Let's get this summer started!
Oooh we are samba-ing in excitement about the goodies we have in store…. Brazilian live music and DJs, street art, food grown in the gardens, wood-fired pizzas, caipirinhas, craft beer, fires under the stars, chilling in a yurt, dancing in poly tunnels and generally celebrating the start of summer…not to mention the heart and soul of this carnival caper:
3 incredible social change projects who will have you samba-ing in the street - CHGN, The Touring Local Cinema and Mywenya Uganda. So come on down, hear their stories and support their amazing work.
