Give, Grow, Gather is an outdoor yoga and picnic fundraising event in support of building a school for children in rural Nepal. The idea was founded by a group of like-minded individuals that met throughout their travels. We got together in Melbourne, Australia with the goal of raising money to make a difference in children's lives, and the desire to bring together individuals while promoting an active lifestyle and celebrating over delicious food.
With the help of our community, our Melbourne fundraiser gathered over 35 guests and raised $1,645 AUD in one amazing day.
The concept of such a gathering inspired a friend across the globe to re-create the event in her community. Give, Grow, Gather Singapore was also a success, as Elia and her team raised over $2,500 SGD!
All proceeds raised through these events support The Travelling Movement's campaign to Build A School In Nepal. Our goal is to raise a total of $15,000 CAD in the hopes of building a primary school in the village of Dovan, Lalitpur. Donations will go towards labor and building material costs and the project will take place in the entire month of June 2016.
