YOU DID IT!   Spring Benefit Recap

THANK YOU!  With your support, last week we celebrated transformative work to sustain people and planet in Southern Africa, and reached our fundraising goal!

 

On behalf of everyone at Shared Interest, thank you for helping to make our annual spring benefit - Shared Interest: Shared Planet - possible.  While the evening exceeded our expectations, most important are the people those numbers represent. Because of your enthusiasm and generosity, more families can thrive economically and environmentally in the context of rapidly accelerating climate change.

SABC News Reports on the Evening 

"Amnesty International's Secretary General-Designate Kumi Naidoo and Congresswoman Barbara Lee were both honored for their contributions in the struggle against apartheid and their subsequent work to uplift the marginalized and disadvantaged around the globe.  

The event also featured a tribute to the late jazz icon Hugh Masekela."
