CHOSA was founded on the principle that “a lot of littles makes a big.” You may wonder what one person can really do to help, but we truly depend on every effort of our wonderful network of alumni and friends to raise money and awareness for CHOSA around the country. Our alumni and friends have organized events at bars, restaurants, community spaces, and even braais (barbeques) in their own backyards to raise funds for our various projects in South Africa. We’d love for you to join us!
Here are some ideas:
CHOSA's US-Based Partnerships
CHOSA has several partners in the United States who have helped us raise funds and awareness throughout the years. Current partnerships include:
The Anthem Group
The Anthem Group is a marketing, consulting, and event-planning company based in Boston, Massachusetts. Anthem's Founder and CEO, Chris Sinclair, became connected to CHOSA's work while living in Cape Town, South Africa, and has spearheaded a number of events to support the work of CHOSA, including the International Music Festival. IMF champions win an international tour, including performances and service work in CHOSA's partner communities. Most recently, Anthem has hosted a "Children Around the World" Charity Date Auction to benefit CHOSA, and on October 20th, "A True Work of Art" Silent Auction will take place at Boston's iconic Custom House (for more details, see events page).
