Wassa Dance & Village Volunteers’ 14th Annual Thanks-Giving Dance Fundraiser

Wassa Dance & Village Volunteers’ 14th Annual Thanks-Giving Dance by Donation is happening and you are invited!

Crown Hill Community Building Gym

This gathering has become a beloved event for many who enjoy community, fun and good works as part of their holiday traditions. As always, the event features some of Seattle’s finest percussionists donating their time for the project. 

This year we will dance to raise money for the Wassa Inua Mama (Uplift Women) Fund from Common Ground for Africa. 

The money we raise will provide seed funding for training for 100 young Kenyan women with no business experience about how to work with money. They will learn about bookkeeping, marketing, and personal savings to prepare them for sustaining and managing their own small businesses which are micro-loaned funds through the group. Part of the project includes building a banda (hut) for meetings, sharing ideas, selling seeds and vegetables. 

All donations are tax-deductible and eligible for company matching funds. If you can’t attend, you can donate online at https://villagevolunteers.org/donate/.

Or send a check to Village Volunteers with Wassa Dance on the memo line to Village Volunteers 5100 South Dawson St. Suite 202 Seattle, WA 98118.
