1000 Faces is proud to embark on another effort to raise $1000 for a local non-profit. This is the fourth in a series of fundraisers that have raised $1000 for AIDS Athens, Bottles for Babies, and Nica-Hope. This time we are directing our efforts towards a the local chapter of Nourish International.
Nourish International's mission is to eradicate global poverty by engaging students and empowering communities. We became familiar with Nourish International when their chapter President started coming by the roaster and telling us some stories about the work that they were engaged in both locally and internationally. We felt somewhat enamored by the fact that they embodied the best of the Athens community spirit. We are a small town, though our hearts bend deep before the winds of the world. 1000 Faces has decided that we want to do whatever we can to give them encouragement in their endeavors. More information about Nourish International at www.nourishinternational.org.
We will run this much like the other fundraisers we have completed. 30 day operation. The end of the fundraiser will culminate in a evening of celebration at the Tuesday Night Downtown Farmer's Market on 6/15/2010. In the coming days we will launch a program through Chip In where you can donate money that we will send to Nourish.
