With the support of local artisans and socially conscious businesses, The Latitude Project is hosting their second Market for Good in Victoria on June 21-23.
Featuring a selection of special items, the sale will run for three days at Heartwood & Co., offering a curated collection that has been donated to the event so that all proceeds can support charitable initiatives. The organization likes to consider it as win-win-win, as every item that someone purchases is considered a donation, while the event shines light on the amazing contributing companies, all while supporting a good cause. With so many worthy and important local and global causes to support, The Latitude Project has partnered with a talented network of local and international makers to offer supporters a fundraising event that doesn’t feel like fundraising.
The Latitude Project has grown to receive international attention for helping thousands of people throughout Latin America gain access to clean water, health care, education & safe shelter. Actress and board member, Elizabeth Olsen, has received the EMA Futures Award for her work with the organization and our founders have been presented as CNN Heroes.
The proceeds raised from this event will support our grassroots organization that operates with a 100% model: meaning that every penny of public donation goes to on-the-ground project costs without filtering through any overhead fees. Because of this, we rely on creative ways to cover necessary operational costs, from websites to marketing, and everything in-between. This event will help ‘power’ our organization and allow us to keep our projects alive.
The event will feature a launch party event on June 21 that includes a bar, live music and shopping for a cause. :)
