The charity committee 

This year we have a new situation in the committee. Eva decided to step down as Charity Coordinator, and Julia is taking a break from the Charity work. We are extremely thankful for all their work, and commitment in the last years. 

Now, more then ever we are looking for members to join the committee, to share different task amongst the team, and to take on responsibilities to make a real difference to people’s day-to-day lives.

The committees tasks 

The IWCR members seek to raise funds to provide support and financial assistance for charities in Latvia. Our primary focus is on helping families, young mothers, and the elderly.

The different tasks to take care of are : 

  • the charity email inbox: answer requests and communicate by email,
  • contact to the charities we support,
  • plan all our visits and activities,
  • shopping with specific organizations,
  • field trips with Ilguciem children,
  • bi-annual Charity collection, 
  • Christmas bazaar related correspondence  with all the charities we support, 
  • review applications for projects, and collection of annual reports about executed project/ support 
  • assigning IWCR funds after charity bazaar and finalizing contracts. 

Many hands can make light work.

Ideally, the described tasks above are taken care off in a team, but not by one person only. We would like to encourage several ladies to share the tasks – more helpers make a task easier. 

However, from experience we know, it needs one person to make the team come together – “the glue” with the willingness to coordinator the team and the willingness to have fun.

Are you a person who likes to pick up the phone? Are you great in taking care of email communication? Can you see yourself coordinating the charity collections? Or do you like to get people together and work in a team? There might be a task within the potpourri which fits you perfectly well. 

We know, we have great enthusiastic women in the club to make this happen. 

Please let Eva know if you have interest supporting the charities, or questions about the work, or you have ideas how to run it  this year.

Big hug

Eva and the charity committee
