FXBG4Ukraine Check Photo Event Sunday Dec 4, 2 PM

 

On Sunday, December 4, at 2 PM, all who helped with FXBG4Ukraine event are invited to gather for a “big check” photo. We will gather on the Caroline Street Library steps at 2 PM.

 

We have had printed a big check, payable to the People of Ukraine, in the amount of $24,000.

We will unfurl the publicity banner that hung above the Library entrance, and also hold the big Ukrainian flag, as well as smaller ones.

 

The idea is to have as many of us as possible present for the photo, as it truly took us all to make this event so successful.

 

We are dividing the proceeds between Doctors without Borders, Save the Children, and World Central Kitchen, all of which have established programs in Ukraine. As an additional benefit, the donations are being made on Giving Tuesday, November 29. The donation to Doctors without Borders and World Central Kitchen are a double match; the donation to Save the Children is a five-times match.

 

Please share this info with any who have helped, and invite them to join in for our celebratory photo.

 

PLEASE FORWARD! ALL who helped are welcome...Sister City food donors, vols at event, artists, library and city staff, steering committee, artists, performers, techs...anyone! Pass the word!

 

See you THIS SUNDAY, Dec. 4, at 2 PM, on the Library steps!
