Jolkona Foundation’s first fundraiser is now in the history books. It was a successful Hot Chocolate and Dessert Fundraiser Social where we had the opportunity to talk about our work and highlight the recent work we did for the victims of the Cyclone in Bangladesh. We mainly used Facebook to spread the word about this fundraiser. We tried to reach out to our family and friends in the Los Angeles area.
We had a turn out of about 20 people and we were able to raise little over $1000 during the event!!! We are very encouraged by the turn out of mostly college students and young professionals and by the fact that we were able to raise $1000 from such a small crowd. We hope to take the Jolkona message on the road more often in the future with plans to hit up Seattle, the Bay Area, Boston, New York, and Washington D.C. in the near future.
