Olaiya and John from Seattle, WA spent many hours discussing how to put their money where their mouth is when it comes to supporting world-changing organizations. Their goal is to raise funds through a series of social events and dinners. The proceeds from these affairs are used to support women in war-torn countries through Women for Women International!
Olaiya and John not only host monthly events, but they also write about them and share pictures on their blog: http://bealittlespark.blogspot.com/.
From the blog….
“We hope that the project grows and becomes more ambitious as time goes by. However we evolve, we would like to keep a consistent set of values. Our goal is to make use of Olaiya’s considerable talents in the kitchen, provide vegetarian-friendly meals and tastings, attempt to cater all events with local, organic produce, and keep costs low enough that everyone can participate. We intend to focus on building an ever-increasing sense of community.”
