Bay Area Turning Point Christmas Event
In December 2018, 2019, and again in 2020, Revive to Survive hosted a Christmas event for the children at Bay Area Turning Point, which is a shelter for abused women and children. The event consisted of activities for the kids to enjoy (such as cookie decorating, arts & crafts, and various games for the kids to enjoy). We also provided the opportunity for the kids to "shop" for their mothers in an area we set up the many donations we received from our gracious donors. The event allowed the children to give their moms a present in the midst of a less than ideal situation for the holiday season. Revive to Survive believes in the importance of showing gratitude even when it's hard to see the things we can be grateful for.
We enjoyed working with Bay Area Turning Point and relieving them of some work load in the stressful holiday season. It gave Revive to Survive a chance to help out those closer to home and learn from a more experienced organization. We are excited to continue working with Bay Area Turning Point and using the experience we gained to help those abroad.
Raise Your Voice Event
This event encompassed the three aspects of world wide issues related to pediatric cancer: health, education, and food. We raised awareness of the severity of these three issues and encouraged citizens to get outside of their bubbles and take action to help those in need. This event portrayed these needs through three speeches explaining why action needed to be taken and to persuade those who attended the event to help out. They did this by donating food items and donating funds for better health care and education for the children. In total, $420 was raised.
Thanks to Revive to Survive and the three advocates, Jasmine McClam, Daniyal Khawaja, and Anuki Wijeratne, we were able to raise awareness of the need to take action and help those who need it the most.
Rotary All Club Dinner
On January 12th, 2016, Revive to Survive presented a table at the 2016 Rotary All Club Dinner, featuring the Rotary International President, K.R. Ravindran, at the Downtown Crowne Plaza Hotel. Houston Skyline Rotary Club graciously asked us to present our organization to the numerous other rotary clubs from the Greater Houston Area.
We presented Revive to Survive to anybody who walked by our table and showed interest in our projects. Overall, the event was a huge success. We were able to sell many of the calendars and paintings from the Rainbow Connection project and we also handed out over 20 brochures and business cards. We also received contact information and business cards in return as well.
Later that night, President Ravindran walked in to the event. Revive to Survive was lucky enough to have spoken to the President at the event. Revive to Survive is extremely grateful for having gotten this opportunity to showcase our organization to many wonderful, caring people. We are confident that we have made great contacts and friends for Revive to Survive's future endeavors.
