As you may have heard, Larissa Gaias, a CIEE Khon Kaen alum, has graciously volunteered to host a small fundraiser in her own community, with the proceeds of the event going towards our Mining Campaign. On April 3rd, she will be hosting an art show during her community's monthly art walk, featuring photographs and artwork done by former CIEE students telling the story of mining in the NE and Na Nong Bong.
We call on 12 ENGAGErs to step up and commit to hosting an event as part of our Spring Drive, running from April 3rd to May 17th. It would be so amazing to have multiple events around the country hosted by ENGAGE members - spreading awareness, getting people involved, and raising money!
It can be as big or as small as you want it to be, and feel free to be creative! Any amount of donations helps us get closer to reaching our goal, and it is only possible with the support of the network. Here are some suggested ideas:
- Art show
- A-thon event
- Charity poker or game night ($ buy-in)
- Educational forum/discussion
- Fancy dinner ($ per head/ticket)
- School/Teacher donation fundraiser
- Party/BBQ with donation jar
- Film/documentary screening
- Coordinating with a business (donating % of their profits)
