Major Raiser's 2013 GIVVA FORK Party
This March, local charity Major Raiser will be giving Sydney diners the opportunity to become philanthropists with their forks through its 2013 GIVVA FORK campaign.
The GIVVA FORK campaign was created by Sydneysider Dominic
Greenwood to raise money and awareness for the reputable World Food Programme, with this particular campaign focused on providing children in Laos with school meals. Every dollar raised for the WFP will provide four school meals to a child in need in Laos.
To spread the word, Major Raiser has partnered with some of Sydney's most popular restaurants to offer diners a very simple and guilt free way of giving to this worthy cause. When dining at one of the Major Raiser restaurant partners during March, diners will be given the opportunity to:
1. Pay an optional 'FORKAGE' fee: Everyone knows of corkage - the fee you pay for the removal of a cork from your BYO alcohol. However 'FORKAGE' is an optional fee you can pay to help the charity - a small donation made when paying your bill at the end of your meal.
2. Purchase a 'GIVVA FORK' for $6: each fork purchased provides a child in Laos with school meals for a month.
The restaurant partners include: Orto Trading Co Surry Hills; Ampersand Surry Hills; Mad Pizza Surry Hills, Potts Point, Darlinghurst, Bondi Beach and Newtown; Olio St Leonards; Michelini Crows Nest; Not Bread Alone St Leonards; Ham Cronulla; The Dip at Goodgod and Edmonds and Greer Oatley.
At the conclusion of this campaign Major Raiser will be hosting The 2013 GIVVA FORK PARTY at The Standard in Darlinghurst. Each ticket purchased to this party provides a child in Laos with school meals for a month. Organisers are hoping to provide 500 months of school meals through this party alone.
The lineup for this event includes indie sweetheart Elizabeth Rose, Polographia, Olympic Ayres and a very special guest to be announced a week prior to the event (If interested in who this is enquire within).
