Last weekend, I hosted a fundraiser for Proyecto Horizonte at a nearby Chili's restaurant. Setting up the fundraiser, called a Give Back Night, was so easy. I simply contacted the restaurant, provided them with Bolivian Charity Foundation's tax ID number, and chose a date. They provided me with custom-made flyers, which I was able to photocopy and hand out around town. For every group that comes in with a flyer, Chili's donates a portion of the profits from their check! I went in with a group of friends to eat, then hung out at the restaurant for a while to answer any questions that people had about Proyecto Horizonte. We had a large number of people come in with flyers, so I'm excited to find out how much we raised! We should be receiving the donation within a few weeks.
While nothing compares to actually being in Cochabamba with our friends at Proyecto Horizonte, it's nice to know there are still ways to stay connected! If you have any questions about hosting a similar Give Back Night, please feel free to contact me!
