Playing Bridge to Create an Enterprise
Bridge enthusiasts are always up for a get-together to play bridge. Prosperity Rings President Nancy Pasternak hosted luncheons and bridge playdays on many occasions throughout the year. Spicy Mexican and tangy Italian cuisine, plus our now-famous lemon dessert, became a part of the charitable bridge fund raisers.
From bridge clubs, bridge classes and duplicate centers, friends and friends of friends gathered together with the satisfying knowledge that their participation was contributing to the pool of funds for micro credit loans to very poor and vulnerable women in India to establish their businesses. They were sincerely glad to hear the brief presentation about Prosperity Rings’ endeavors and see photos of many borrowers at work at their enterprises. Many returned for more sessions of bridge, knowing that they would vastly improve the life of a Dalit woman and her family.
Wherever you live, you might host a game, any kind of game or event — Mahjong, bingo, sports, a cook-off — to help raise funds toward borrower enterprises. You and your group will receive a case study and photograph for each borrower whose enterprise you have made possible. We would be grateful for your contribution that comes from a day of fun and good will.
