I had never started a non-profit foundation before and I quickly realized that although it is a charity it is a real business. The process seemed daunting at first, so I reached out to my friends in the corporate and fundraising world to get their initial thoughts on my mission and get their expert advice on how to get this off the ground. So I went to school on their knowledge, and decided I needed to plan my first big fundraiser....
More on that 'journey' next week:
There is so much more to tell, but I also want to take this opportunity to announce the launch of our young leaders group, “The Helping Hearts Council.” Our first event will be on Thursday, April 14th at Theater Bar in Tribeca. So if you are in NYC, please join us, and its only $50!
I am also excited to announce that the “Helping Hearts Council” will be run by my fabulous sister Olga, and she would be happy to talk with you about how YOU can get involved right away and help us with our mission to rebuild schools and improve the lives of children affected by natural disasters. For more information, please contact email@example.com Please get involved, the more you give, the more you get!
Lots of love, light and happiness.
