Florida-based members of industry networking group Women in Travel Retail and friends held a get-together in mid-May in Miami Beach hosted by Virginie Cordero, of distribution agency Sunnytouch, and raised $1,800 to assist the Primary and Anganwadi School complex in Mudh, India. The school was built by Lotus Flower Institute with support from TFWA CARE; and the Florida WiTRs – spurred on by Virginie – previously funded beds and supplies for the children in the school. This year’s donation aims to fund all the school supplies for the coming year.
Virginie comments: “We gathered a small but very dedicated crowd, with 10 WiTRs plus friends, and had a very good time, sharing stories of our business and life but more importantly, raised such a nice amount of money for these children. The very generous gifts were a hit and made the raffle a lot of fun. Thank you to those who sent in donations also.”
Virginie will be visiting the school in August and it is not too late to send in a donation. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
