Hello friends. A pinch and a punch for the first of the month!
Last night I went to the launch of an exciting new charity called The 2013 GIVVA FORK campaign.
During March, not-for-profit organisation Major Raiser is partnering with a number of Sydney restaurants to raise funds and awareness for the Word Food Programme, with a focus on providing children in Laos with school meals. Every dollar raised will provide four school meals to a child in need in Laos. Pretty impressive, huh?
During the event, held at Mad Pizza in Surry Hills, I chatted to founder Dominic Greenwood. He wanted to make a difference, in a way that’s easy and accessible for people. Hats off, I think it’s pretty impressive for a 25 year old to take such a big idea and run with it.
I was also thrilled to learn that Dominic and his whole family are vegetarians. Bravo, well done Greenwoods!
- FORKAGE – at participating restaurants, you can pay a little extra on your bill
- GIVVA FORK – at participating restaurants or online, buy a GIVVA FORK for just $6 which will feed a child in Laos meals for one month
No spare time in March? Don’t live in Sydney? Never fear, you can donate online!
What an excellent excuse to eat out! Given how easy it is to get involved, I think it will really take off. And with luck lots of cash will be raised for the kiddies. So go on friends, get out there and get eating.
