Here is how you can join All For Africa’s new viral dinner campaign. It’s as easy as going to the website and registering to host a dinner party at your home. Invite friends and family to this feast. At the website you can browse African inspired menu items created exclusively for you by Chef Marcus Samuelsson. All of your guests will be able to choose which item they will bring and a corresponding donation that they will make toward your ultimate fundraising goal of $1000.00 or more. They will then be able to create a web page to send to their friends and family allowing even greater branches of support for your event. When you have your guest list and menu decided, there is a link at the website that allows you to purchase Stellekaya wines (from South Africa) to round out your affair with true African flavor. And beyond the great party, wonderful food and the ultimate good you will do for Africa, the champion fundraisers will receive fabulous prizes including dining at Red Rooster with Chef Marcus Samuelsson.
What all of the dinner participants are supporting is the Palm Out Poverty initiative which is working toward growing ONE MILLION oil palm trees in Africa. When these trees begin to produce palm oil, over $700 million dollars of support over 35 years will be distributed to our partner not for profit groups and NGO’s on the ground all over the continent. This initiative is a new collaborative philanthropic effort that will promote a sustainable revenue stream for All For Africa’s partners and begin to solidify the economies and social infrastructures of hundreds of communities in Africa. Our goal of affecting community level projects in clean water, health, education, energy, micro-financing and skills training can all begin to be met with the support received through just throwing a dinner party.
Feeding your friends and family has never been more rewarding than this. Hosting one of these dinner parties will not only fill your house with guests and your table with great African food and wine but you will be helping to fill whole communities in Africa with hope for the future. The idea of feeding others is a catharsis. Fulfilling that fundamental need nourishes our souls. We hope that you will get involved and take this incredibly simple and savory opportunity to support the Palm Out Poverty initiative.
