Runway Nonprofits: The Annual CHIU dinner fundraiser to benefit hospitals in rural Uganda.
Let us talk about charities. I have a few charities that I love. Some are run by friends and others are my favorite simply because of the work that they do. Like one of my favorite quotes by John Bunyan “You have not lived today until you have done something for someone who can never repay you.” So I went back to Boston last weekend to host the Annual CHIU dinner fundraiser.
This might be a biased opinion but CHIU is one of my favorite because it goes home. CHIU stands for Catholic Health Initiatives for Uganda. We raise money to help improve the infrastructure of Catholic hospitals in rural Uganda. We go to a hospital, help them with water, solar energy and educate about two people who works there and then go to a different village. We always make sure to educate a staff member before we move on to the next hospital. During Saturday’s evening, we raised about $13,000.
Thank you for walking on the Runway. Have a spooky weekend. Come Backstage to share your Halloween costumes. Dont forget to check out CHIU's page. I have the live video and everything.
