A little inspiration from an Oprah episode and a desire to help people live smaller and give bigger helped launch the idea for a Giving Party in 2007. Several do-gooder moms in Chapel Hill gathered to host a party with all of their friends and simply asked the guests to give. And give they did! During a three-hour party, we raised over $12,000 for local, national and international charitable organizations. The donations were then given as alternative gifts to friends and loved ones of the party guests.
We’re hosting our party again this year and can’t wait to see the results. 2008 certainly feels like a year when many organizations will desperately need gifts. We hope you’ll join us and give until it feels good.
