Exciting times for the TFN International Network
TFN International’s giving and thanksgiving season was aptly kicked off by Turkey last month and since then things have continued apace with events in Cyprus, Slovakia, Australia , Poland, Romania and Hungary (and those are the ones we could keep track of!)
Our friends in Cyprus held their first TFN event on 25th October. The event took place in Nicosia in the north of the island and was a huge success, raising more than £8,500 for the three projects – more than twice the target – in the presence of the First Lady. And in another “first” the event led to the adoption of a stray kitten! Congratulations to Melis, Didem and Sezis for such a successful first event and thanks to Liana Varon our partner from TUSEV in Turkey for all the support she gave the team. Fingers crossed this is the first of many more events in Cyprus.
Finally a quick shout out to our dear friends at Ferencvaros community foundation in Budapest who held their 3rd annual event last night raising over 10,000 Euros, and next Thursday to our new partners in Brussels, GRASP who will be hosting their very first live crowdfunding event specially catering to the Romanian diaspora based there.
If you’d like to know more about these or any other events taking place internationally, please contact Jennie.
