Global Changemaker Gala

November 30, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The 2017 New England International Donors Global Changemaker Gala will be held at the beautifully renovated Park Plaza Hotel on November 30th at 6pm and will feature supermodel and bold philanthropist, Petra Nemcova.
Petra Nemcova is a model from the Czech Republic, who survived the Tsunami in 2004. Her then fiancé, traveling with her in Thailand, lost his life and she broke her pelvis and had other serious injuries. The experience was a game changer for her, especially as she witnessed the very difficult challenges children and families faced in the aftermath of the Tsunami, with some children not attending schools for years. Their stories became her story. She then created the Happy Hearts Fund, through which she has helped to build hundreds of schools in the weeks immediately after disasters so that children could continue learning.  Petra is joining us at our annual NEID Changemaker Gala on November 30 to share her story and to talk about what she has learned about being a philanthropic Changemaker.
In addition, we will be honoring several other global changemakers, recipient organizations of NEID’s first Giving Circle, which as you will recall has been focused on women and girls. For the last year over 19 NEID members have been hard at work learning about how best to lend support to women and girls and thereby transform the communities in which they live. We are looking forward to sharing the fruits of their learning and generosity that evening.
Let us know you’re interested in attending the Global Changemakers Gala and RSVP now!
