Truly, what a week it has been! Starting last Friday, all the interns went from getting introduced to BLISS and its activities, to being at the very center of all the work and fun. Needless to say, it has been an amazing learning experience. The team of interns is great, and it is a pleasure to work with Saba.
This week, the Fundraising team started by identifying sources of potential funding for BLISS – grant-making organizations, high net-worth individuals, fundraising events (think concerts and art auctions!) and CSR. We then continued with what currently seems like endless research. Let’s just say a lot of googling is involved!
Nevertheless, we believe in the saying “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step”, and we hope to reach the fundraising goals we’ve set for this summer.
It hasn’t only been work though; where we’ve worked, we’ve also had quite a bit of fun! (It may have had something to do with Xbox Kinect and pizza!). It’s been a great week, and we’re looking forward to many more such weeks working for BLISS this summer!
