Ottawa fundraiser

thisvillage Wine Bottle

2013 is an exciting year for thisvillage! Not only are we about to launch our new website (designed by the wonderful Zach Bulick), but we’re also hosting our first major fundraising event on Friday, March 15th at Orange Art Gallery in Ottawa*. The event will feature wine and cheese, live music and a silent auction. 100% of the proceeds from this event will go toward poverty alleviation projects in rural India.

If you would like to purchase tickets to the wine and cheese, you can do so via the following link:

thisvillage Wine and Cheese Fundraiser

One of the biggest reasons to attend the fundraiser (aside from the obvious helping to alleviate poverty) is to join in the official launch of our first village. We’ll feature projects we’ll be fundraising for, and stories about the people those projects will assist. This is the fun part where your contributions start helping real people in need.

Feel free to send us an email at admin@thisvillage.org if you’d like more information!

* thisvillage will also have an event on Saturday, March 16th in Calgary, Alberta. Details to come! If you’ll be in Alberta in mid-March, plan for a thisvillage event on the 16th!
