BENEFITING: Afrika Tikkun
EVENT DATE: Mar 25, 2016
Have you known Nicole for years but don’t know exactly when she was born? You’re not the only one. This is by design. She loves to host and loves to celebrate – anyone else and anything else but herself.
But this year she’s doing things just a little bit differently. Instead of disappearing during the month of March, she’s asking you to celebrate the fact that we are all alive, mostly healthy and living in a country (and for most of us, a city) that is still full of huge opportunity for all who would reach out, grab it and hold on tight. What better way to acknowledge what we all have than by giving a few of our moments and dollars to those who need to reach farther and try harder than most – the children and youth of the poorest townships in South Africa.
This year Nicole is donating her journey around the sun to Afrika Tikkun, a wonderful organization supporting over 19,000 youth and their families toward holistic success, health and productivity from infancy to young adulthood -- literally ‘from cradle to career’.
Inspired by her long-time friend Liz Ngonzi, Afrika Tikkun’s US CEO and Sinanziwe Ndlovu, one of the organization’s beyond-inspiring young beneficiaries and ambassadors, Nicole is also matching all funds raised toward this birthday campaign goal. Please consider replacing birthday cocktails, coffees, lunches, dinners or lovely gifts with support of these deserving young people.
