Giving back

Those of you who’ve listened to my #elderproject interviews know that one of my questions is “What would you change if you could go back in time?” The most frequent answer I’ve been getting is that they would try to be kinder and more generous.

I’ve been thinking a lot about this lately, so I was thrilled when Graham Perolls, the founder of Hospices of Hope, asked me to be on the organisation’s Honorary Patrons Committee in London. Other members on the Committee include Sir George Iacobescu, Princess Marina Sturdza and the Romanian Ambassador in London Dr. Ion Jinga, so I’m honoured to have been considered alongside such amazing individuals.

Today, I would like to announce that I have accepted to be on the committee and I’m very excited to be helping Hospices Of Hope raise money for their ongoing projects.

I’m starting by organising an art exhibition in Bucharest, on April 21st from 7pm at Galeria IX (Bld. Aviatorilor nr. 9). Five up-and-coming artists have agreed to exhibit their works and donate 50% of all sales to Hospices of Hope, and Galeria IX have agreed to donate 10% of all drink sales as well. It’s promising to be a great event packed with wonderful people so if you’d like to participate please RSVP on Facebook.

Hope to see you there.
