We just hosted another successful fund raiser here Nozomi Sushi in Carlsbad and raised $328.00 in donations for Operations Underground Railroad! Thanks for everyone who came out and showed their support. As much as we love selling fish, we love our community more. And it fills us with great pride to know that you, our community stands behind us.
If you don’t know anything about OUR, they are a nonprofit that focuses their efforts on putting an end to human trafficking with an emphasis on child sex trafficking. Since their inception 2 years ago, they have rescued 521 children and arrested 161 traffickers. Not only do they work with local governments to prosecute the traffickers to the fullest degree of the law, they ensure the survivors, those children, are cared for with recovery methods and rehabilitation practices necessary to ensure their health for decades to come.
Back to the event… it was a hit, quite literally. Ending the night with one last loud “smack” on the table; thats the noise of a shot glass filled with sake falling into a frosty pint of Sapporo. Sake bombs and a soft “Fair-well!” and the event came to a close. We all finally had a minute to breath with a giant grin on our faces. We love these events, they are the best was to shine light on touchy topics most don’t feel entirely comfortable talking about. Even speaking of these incidents leaves one choking on their own words, but how much nicer is it when you we can come together around good food and friends in a comfortable environment and produce the same output in the form of a signed check for $328! We would of course love to add a few zeros to that check, but everything in time. Our goal was $300 and we beat that by over 8%, We'll take it!
Thanks one last time to everyone that came out! The goal is to host at least 1 fundraiser a week. Every Wednesday in May (11th, 18th and 25th) we’ll be hosting a fundraiser for HabitForHumanity with efforts to raise money for a house build in Tijuana coming up this Memorial Day weekend. So spread the word and come help put a roof over the head of a family in need. Also if you or someone you know may be interested in hosting a fundraiser please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information!
Cheers to my Sushi Family,
