One of the great things about working at ONE is learning about all the amazing things that ONE members are doing around the globe.
And so it was great to hear from ONE members in Brazil, who recently held an event in São Paulo.
Here’s what they had to say:
“In order to finish this wonderful year, ONE members held a meeting in the Ibirapuera Park in São Paulo. It was in a hot and sunny 11 December, “summer” here in Brazil.
The meeting was a great way for people, who in any way contributed to the fight against extreme poverty, to get to know one another. And we also we shared ONE’s mission with the other visitors to the park and some fan club members who were there performing a benefit event.
In a very relaxed mood, while listening to U2 songs, we enjoyed a delicious picnic and exchanged ideas on volunteering, HIV/AIDS and political questions.
We are grateful to all the Brazilians who helped us during the day and who publicized and signed the petitions. We know that the real volunteer is one who donates the best of his or herself, without hope of anything as recompense. It is through the small actions and attitude, we acheive the bigger effective changes!
TOGETHER AS ONE”
A big thank you to all the ONE members who took part in the event!
