Following a successful end to 2012, the Brite Impact team, a group of Eventbrite employees focused on volunteering and giving back as a company, is seeking to keep the momentum going in the new year.
Brite Impact was looking for a large scale project that would make a lasting positive impact on people’s lives. We are excited to announce that we are kicking off 2013 by raising money for Charity: Water to bring safe, clean drinking water to the people of Tigray, Ethiopia.
With the combined efforts of every Briteling, our goal is to raise $10,000 by March 29. If each Briteling raises $44 we’ll be able to reach our goal. We’re not only trying to meet the goal, but to shatter it, because 100% of our donations will be put towards funding a construction project for a water well in Tigray.
Here are some creative ways that Britelings are raising money:
* Skipping their morning latte and drinking coffee at the office
* Taking public trasportation or biking instead of taking cab rides
* Skipping happy hour and picking up a bottle of two-buck chuck at Trader Joe’s
* Reaching out to social networks for donations
* Asking friends to donate in lieu of buying a birthday gift
Charity: Water has funded projects in 20 different countries. Its goal is to bring clean drinking water to the 800 million people in developing countries who don’t have access to clean water forcing them to resort to drinking from unhealthy and contaminated sources. We’re excited to be a part of that mission.If you would like to contribute or help us get to our goal you can donate at our Charity: Water campaign page here: https://bit.ly/britewater.
Check back at the end of March when we’ll update you with how much Britelings have raised!
