Young Innovator in Coexistence Award: Radeyah Hack

I'm on youtube now too! Wow - this is a first! All thanks to my colleague from the CUNY Graduate Center, Marriah Star. He's taken a great interest in AID's social entrepreneurship work and is clearly vested in making it widely known and accessible to as large an audience as possible.
Thanks, Marriah!

Tanda's first benefit - 9/30

From my friend, Cynthia Shannon - please support!

Tanda (which means "Love" in Zulu) is throwing it's first benefit (appropriately named "First Benefit" not to be confused with the many more to come!). Tanda is a non-profit organization founded in 2003 that supports orphans of AIDS in South Africa.

Tanda is currently working to fund the new Tanda After-School Program, which is set to open in January 2008 in the province of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. Designed by Tanda's directors, the goal of this program is to empower South African students by providing a safe alternative to risky behavior and by teaching marketable skills.

The bash will be held Sunday, September 30 at Mannahatta, starting at 8 pm. Tickets start at $25 and include a two hour open wine and beer bar, fancy hors d'oeuvres, beautiful jewelry designed by South African women, an extraordinary photography exhibition and a raffle (raffle tickets included with $50 or $100 donation). Music will be provided by DJ Moni and African Drummers.
Tickets can be purchased via the website or at the door.
It would be a tremendous help if you could mention the event anywhere, everywhere. Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions, or would like additional information.
Kind regards,
Cynthia Shannon
