A big thank you to everyone for coming out last night for The DSFederal IDEA Foundation fundraiser in support of women in Afghanistan. We have raised $3,450 for the women and children of Afghanistan.
In eight days, Sophia and Michael Parker will head to Kabul to deliver funds for the Soholat Health Services & Vocational Organization, which helps women establish sustainable lifestyles through a tailoring school. Sophia and Michael will also transport warm clothing to children at the Aschiana Center.
The December 14 trip will mark DSFederal’s second venture to Afghanistan in an effort to empower women and provide comfort to some of the nearly 70,000 children living on the streets of Kabul. We appreciate your continued support in our efforts to make a difference.
Just ahead of Sophia and Michael Parker’s trip to Afghanistan, The DSFederal IDEA Foundation is holding a fundraiser tomorrow (12/5) to raise money for women learning to become tailors to establish sustainable incomes. We will also collect used, warm clothing for children at the Aschiana Center. The event will be held at The Front Page in Dupont Circle from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.
Sophia and Michael will bring proceeds and items from the fundraiser to Afghanistan when they depart for the country December 14. The fundraiser will feature a silent auction and a raffle. Prizes range from a Clinique gift set and decorative holiday wreath to box seat tickets at a Wizards game – among an array of other potential winnings.
Those looking for cheap transportation can sign up for Uber and enter the promotional code “ideadsfederal” for $20 off of their first Uber ride.
Join us tomorrow night to support the financial growth and stability of women in Afghanistan.
This season, underprivileged groups from Washington D.C. to Afghanistan will all feel the same heart-warming efforts of a locally-based charity looking to spread holiday cheer across the world.
The Takoma Park Alternative Gift Fair raises $25,000 in a single night for underfunded charities throughout the world to provide donations of food and supplies to developing countries. Steve Whitney, who works on DSFederal’s FDA Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH) contract, found out about the gift fair after representing Share Literacy in 2008, a charity that participated in the project, and became inspired to continue helping each year.
The term “alternative gift” refers to a craft object, such as a sewing machine, that is donated to a developing country that could exponentially benefit from its use. Gifts are given in the form of donations, which are then put in cards and sent out through the participating 12 to 15 organizations.
The impact of the Takoma Park Gift Fair reaches around the globe – this year, Bikes for the World, which ships bikes and bike parts to Africa, is participating. Another charity, Free Minds Book Club, provides books and various social support services to adolescents in D.C. jails. Animal rights groups, children’s health and safety causes, and Meals on Wheels participate almost every year, Whitney says, a testament to the diverse range of organizations supporting the cause.
Even younger generations attend with a budget from their parents to purchase alternative gifts, he says.
“It's very cool to see them talking to the organizations, taking notes, and deciding how to spend their money. It's a good lesson in generosity.”
Staffers for the event, which takes place December 7, are still looking for extra help spreading the word, setting up the room, and hosting fundraising events at D.C. clubs.
