Brooklyn/Queens Returned Peace Corps Volunteer Meetup Message Board › Oct 13 Benefit Reception to support Shea Yeleen International's work in Mali
hi meet-up folks,
thanks so much for supporting the first NYC benefit reception for Shea Yeleen International, a small, all-volunteer non-profit that started as a Peace Corps project in Mali.
we work to organize, train, and build the capacity of women-owned shea butter cooperatives in mali and ghana, and to education US consumers about the importance of buying fair trade shea butter. and we sell a great skin care line, using shea butter from the cooperatives.
but we can't do it alone. we need your help! please log on to buy tickets for our Oct 13 benefit reception, honoring Ghanaian shea producer Eugenia Akuete. The event will run from 6 - 8:30PM at the Puck Building in Soho, and will feature a guest speaker from the White House Project, a short visual presentation on shea butter production, award presentation, and of course wine and food! You can get your tickets or sponsor packages here:
thanks so much and look forward to seeing you at the Puck Building on Oct 13.
