IE’s Net Impact Chapter (former Social Responsibility Club) organized “Global Village” on 20th June. Global Village was a celebration of cultures and diversity where students prepared something typical from their countries. The result was a party where students and IE Staff got together and had a great time. The money raised from the tickets sold, was donated to the West Foundation (EUR1500, enough for monthly pool physiotherapies for 50 children).Shisha.jpg
A big thank you to the students of the 18 countries which prepared something: Germany, Mexico, Argentina, Turkey, Norway, England, Switzerland, Brazil, China, India, Costa Rica, Georgia, Chile, Portugal, Greece, Spain, Egypt, USA. Also a big thank you to the Students office which was more than supportive and gave us a budget for the event, the Partners club, that contributed a lot in the preparation of the stands, the Marketing club that donated cava, the Gourmet club that donated a whole jamon and wine, Helena from Brazil who sold great bikinis (www.dunasswimwear.com) and donated part of the revenues, Justine from China who gave an artistic touch by selling her pictures and also supported the West Foundation with her sales, the two Indian restaurants that donated food – Great initiative from our Indian community (who also sold Indian products and donated profits), our in-kind sponsors: Corona, Old el Paso and Coca-Cola and of course everyone who came and contributed.
On behalf of Net Impact Chapter and the children with West Syndrome a big thanks to all of you!
