Wait. What Just Happened?!

Date: Thu, November 11, 2021
Time: 8:00 PM – 10:00 PM CST
Presented By: Move 92

During this interactive storytelling event, participants will get the opportunity to hear real-life stories about philanthropy that will make you go “Whoa, that’s incredible!” and some will have you saying “Yikes, I hope that doesn’t happen again!”

We will be joined by four local leaders from four different countries, who will share stories of their own experiences working with philanthropists to support their community. This event is for anyone who currently engages in philanthropy, or is thinking about beginning their philanthropic journey, and wants to learn more about how this can be done from a trust-based approach.

At the beginning of each story, the storyteller will pose a question to the audience, which you will get to discuss in small groups with other event participants. This will give you an opportunity to connect and network with other participants, and share your own experiences relating to the theme of each story.

But Partners Asia is still there supporting local leaders on the ground—even when many other aid organizations have left the country. Partners Asia forms long-term relationships with local leaders who are doing the hard work to serve their communities. These relationships span decades, and they give an essential sense of hope.

The Biking for Burma Fund-Athalon will raise funds to provide support for things like meals for people in refugee camps, medical supplies, and activities for kids. But it's also helping cultivate lasting friendships…which are often the difference between having the hope to continue doing what your community needs, or giving up in frustration.
