The event creator says
So, it's that time of year again where I conveniently get closer to the 30 mark, yikes!!! Last year in my 20's... how time flies. This year I'd like to invite you all to the birthday fun, but with a twist. As much as the girl in me loves getting gifts, this year I'd like to make it all about two causes that are very near and dear to my heart...

20 + years in India has allowed me the humbling honour of volunteering and working alongside some amazing projects. My Choices and Hope Now are two non-profits that I'd like to give money to this year, instead of receiving anything myself. My Choices deals with women who have experienced domestic abuse and re-empowers them with skills and an education, creating ambassadors of change. Hope Now is our orphanage with 60 children and the first group is now off to university, changing their own lives one year at a time, one tremendous goal. The links to their sites can be found below:

Ok, now for some more awesome news! This little event will be held at the Aster Cafe, in the River Room (we have it all to ourselves). There will be deserts, appetisers and a warm bar to greet you.

You'll have the opportunity to purchase merchandise that is hand made by our My Choices women that include scarves, bohemian bags, makeup bags - all recycled sari fabric. You'll also be able to donate to the scholarship fund for Hope Now's children.

Bring anyone and everyone that you like! I know many of you have already donated and I'd so love to see some new faces to show them what shenanigans we've been up to ;)

Cheers and see you soon!
