Over $5,700 raised during the month of October!
Once again, Thomson Reuters partnered with Bountifield during the month of October to raise funds for a company-wide effort to #GrindOutHunger. As part of the company’s employee programming for community outreach and giving, Thomson Reuters employees conducted a month-long fundraising and advocacy campaign to support Bountifield efforts of bringing postharvest processing technologies to farmers and entrepreneurs in sub-Saharan Africa.
Throughout the month, employees had opportunities to learn more about the work that Bountifield does to help African farmers and entrepreneurs create more food, income, and opportunity with improved tools and training. The Bountifield groundnut sheller was displayed on site as well as demonstrations of coffee grinding with Bountifield’s multi-crop grinder. Employees also had the opportunity to play a weekly game of “Bountifield Bingo”, a chance to have fun, win prizes, and learn more about our efforts to increase economic opportunities for smallholders in Africa.
At the end of the campaign, Thomson Reuters surpassed their fundraising goal of $5,000 by raising over $5,700 with donations from over 170 participants!
Thank you to all the staff and volunteers from Thomson Reuters who enthusiastically led the campaign and raised awareness of Bountifield throughout their workplace community! It’s through the dedicated passion of our supporters that we are able to keep working toward a more bountiful future without extreme hunger and poverty.
