Ready to Join?

Dear Changemakers,

How is everyone doing?

We hope you are all well and ready to join our March virtual meeting.

We will have Chris Prisco, who represents the NGO JARDIM DAS BORBOLETAS ( Protected content ) in Rio de Janeiro. The NGO does an amazing work assisting low-income kids with bullosa epidermolysis and Chris will explain who we can help these little angels.

Besides that, our March food basket campaign will support INSTITUTO ONIKOJA ( Protected content )

The INSTITUTO ONIKOJA (onikoja means owner of courage) is a social project located in Sepetiba who supports mainly elderly with physical, mental and social problems. There are around Protected content people registered and others waiting for financial or essential needs support. Once “adopted”, they participate in handcraft workshops (AHOSIS DOLLS above), fitness activities, therapies and social events. Food baskets will be purchased from MG Comercio de Alimentos, Ltda, for a price of R$66,50 / unit. The payment will be on March 11 / 12th. Please contact Luciana for further information.

We will also have a campaign to collect plastic caps and can seals to be donated to ABBR and NGO One by One ( Protected content ). 400kg of these caps represents a wheel chair, besides our contribution to the environment. So, spread the news among your family members and friends and try to get as many caps and seals as you can. Due date is April 15th. Contact us for delivery info.

Hope see you all on Thursday!
