Erin Gautsche has been given a small grant by Foobooz.com to host a dinner fundraiser for Women to Women International. She will be cooking a humble traditional Congolese meal this Saturday night from 6:30PM – 8:30PM at the Kelly Writers House and is asking guests to make a donation ($10 +) to support Women for Women International. Through donations, women in Afghanistan, Bosnia and Herzegovinia, Democratic Republic of Congo, Kosovo, Rwanda and Sudan receive:
– direct aid for food, medicine, clothing and schooling
– microcredit loans and access to other economic opportunities
– rights awareness and leadership education
– job skills training and emotional support from the exchange of letter through the Sponsorship Program
They’ll be screening videos about the organization, and she’ll provide more ways that you can get involved with Women for Women International at the event. Please pass along this invitation, and ask people to RSVP to her at firstname.lastname@example.org, or through the facebook invite at: http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#!/event.php?eid=187929097915944
Thanks so much for your short-notice help and support!
