BENEFITING: Duo 58 Inc
For years we've dreamed about creating a sustainable restaurant/cafe model that empowered it's customers to become partners of transformation in their local and international community. Every meal we serve provides a meal and day of education for a child in need overseas. Currently we have provided well over sixteen thousand meals and days of education for children in Haiti through our partnership with Mission of Hope Haiti. We also will use the cafe as the base for our Job and Life Skills program which will help people going through hardship to be empowered within a caring community and healthy work environment to become the whole and healthy individual, personally and professionally. This cafe will be home to many events that will spotlight other charities and groups of people impacting their communities through culinary and other various arts and passions.
Here is where YOU come in:
We have encountered some unexpected expenses as we have approched this last stage of opening this venue. Some of these expenses are government impact fees and some additional construction and equipment expenses. If we all pull together and pitch in to meet this urgent need, DUO 58 should be able to open in approximately 4 weeks!
Every valued partner who contributes a gift of $25 or more will be invited to a special VIP event at the new cafe prior to its public opening.
(From our lawyer: DUO 58 is a registered 501(c)(3) organization. The amount of your contribution that is deductible for federal income tax purposes is limited to the excess of any money contributed by you over the value of the VIP event. DUO 58's good faith estimate of the value of the VIP event is $25.)
