One Night for Women!
Feb 19, 2014 @ 7:30 am - 11:00 pm| $10
Join us on February 19th for “One Night For Women!”
$10 admission gets you FREE dessert provided by Rebellious Treats, a raffle ticket**, live music and dance, and an opportunity to connect and network with globally-minded women from all over the NYC area.
This fundraising event is sponsored by the Go Girl Travel Network and will benefit A Global Friendship‘s Project Home India. Funding will help bring 20 women in India full time employment.
A Global Friendship is a young, dynamic, and environmentally conscious not-for-profit that works to improve the standard of living in developing regions. Project Home is AGF’s primary development project and has employed over 100 women and men in India, Thailand, Indonesia, Peru and the USA. Project Home provides artisans with micro-grants and training to help them grow their business. We help build economy where it is needed. The Upcycled Braid is our first offering from the 20 women we seek to provide full time employment to in Faridabad, India. The Upcycled Braid gives the women we are working with in India a chance to create something new and inspiring while also literally cleaning up their local communities of plastics. Various colored bags are used for the braids, reflecting the bold color usage for which India has become famous. Upcycled Braids offer a unique and alternate approach towards reusing materials which otherwise have become environmental offenders worldwide.
** Raffle Includes: Gym Memberships, Yoga Studio Passes, Eye Exam & Pair of Glasses, Restaurant Gift Cards, LUSH Gift Basket & MORE!
