Do you remember the stationery I designed for Watoto a few weeks back? I just had some photos sent to me from the night. It's so lovely to see something I've designed come to life. The decor was a great mix of corporate and 'African' I think!
It was a free Gala event for corporate supporters of Watoto, MC'd by tv presenter Heather Foord, and with live performance by the Watoto Children's Choir. During the evening guests are given the opportunity to donate to the charity. I've seen this concept done by a couple of different organisations and from what I've heard it is really successful.
I would probably be more generous with a donation if I'd just been warmly hosted, received a free dinner & concert. What about you would you give more at this kind of event or at a per head fee event?
