The Virtual Thanksgiving Feast

Many thanks to our Santa Fe group for hosting a fundraising event on November 9. They had nearly 100 people in attendance and more than doubled the funds raised at their event last year. Way to go, Santa Fe! 

This week RESULTS board member Kul Gautam will begin a short U.S. speaking tour to support some of our groups local fundraising events. You can find detailed event information here:

Plus, right now is also the perfect time to kick off your own Virtual Thanksgiving Feast online campaign! We have easy-to-use resources to help you manage a successful campaign in just 7 days! It's easy to sign up and even easier to give back to RESULTS through this already established online source. Why not invite your friends and family to virtually join you in giving thanks while giving back? 

Just register your page online. Or, if you can't register for your own page, consider supporting one of the groups already registered for the feast:
