‘It’s my shout’ 2016 Fundraising Campaign
We have just wound down our annual fundraising campaign, we couldn’t be happier with how it was run and what we achieved. In just two short weeks we managed to launch our paying it forward “It’s my shout’ campaign, reach over 25,000 individuals with the message of The Welcome Dinner Project, produce our first short film staring Samson, make some very exciting business partnerships AND raise $21,480.
In real numbers what was raised was 716 seats at The Welcome Dinner table, that is 716 lives transformed by individuals having the chance to connect with their community through their common humanity. None of this would have been possible without the support of some amazing people, like you! We love the Chuffed platform as it allows grass roots people movements, like The Welcome Dinner Project to be directly funded by individuals who believe in the project. So many warm and fuzzies for your support!
Moving forward we are feeling bright eyed and busy tailed for the year ahead, the world is currently facing its largest movement of people since the end of World War II and we believe that Welcome Dinners can play a vital role in that process.
Lastly we have the very exciting news that our founder Penny and her partner Victor are preparing to welcome a beautiful little boy into the world in early August. So stay tuned for Welcome Dinner Baby!
