We present you their article:
The adventure of this great experience we’ve had altogether was invaluable! On February 2915, we asked from a local supermarket named “Comisariato Los Andes” to be our host and let us promote the first phase of the Honduran Part of Rotaract Club Athens’ international project “Buy one more!”.
After we’ve reached into an agreement with the store, we started gathering food supplies from 9:00 a.m. 2 to 9:00 p.m., for two days. On Saturday, the 21th of February 2015, we started! We’ve designed a campaign logo to identify the baskets and strategically define our spots of advertisement! The supermarket had only one gate, which helped our efforts and prevented our members from being distributed in too many spots at the store. By the end of the day, we have gathered 567.45 euros !
On the next day, we started working directly after the supermarket opened his doors! The customers were happy and proud about our humanitarian action! As a result, the second day ended with 386.78,euros and a total weight of 481 kg!
On the 8th of March, the gathered supplies were donated to a community of 130 families and 800 inhabitants. All the people who live in this community acknowledged this action, they couldn’t believe that there are organizations that don’t pursue anything more than community service.
The campaign was a complete success and we are going to repeait it on 18-19 of April! We will be updating the new data to our friends from Rotaract Club of Athens.
