We at Crew and Concierge are looking to find an effective way to help make a difference in the lives of the people on the ground in the affected islands of the Caribbean. Knowing that we could help in any way we decided it best to approach Yacht Aid Global to assist in raising funds to support the wonderful work they are doing on the ground. Together we are aiming to raise awareness again and help fund some of the important relief work that is happening where it’s needed most.
As the stories of the tragedy fade from the news, we are looking to not only aid in the initial relief effort but to offer long term support in the form of funds raised through various events to ensure that the people on the affected islands know and feel that they have not been forgotten. To do this, we have events taking place in Palma as well as asking the yachting community to take part wherever they may be in the world. Our main event will be the week of Thanksgiving – 20th – 26th November – asking everyone to host a dinner party and have an evening full of friends, food and fundraising for an extremely important cause.
The idea is pretty simple, if you love to cook or would like to get stuck in just invite your crew, your friends, your family, your work colleagues, neighbours, anyone! To join you for an evening of food and fundraising for some great causes. We’re proposing charging a fee from your guests which can then be donated.
We thought this was a great idea to do for Thanksgiving as we can all “give thanks” for all we have as well as provide a little extra for those who don’t. You can donate here to YAG or please contact us for more details on how you can help!
