Staff Appreciation Lunch with NEST
On November 2nd, IPPF/WHR's staff received a midday treat from long-time supporters Jerry and Diane Cunningham. During a trip with us to Colombia in October 2010, the Cunninghams were inspired by the work of Profamilia, an IPPF/WHR Member Association that has centers throughout the country. Then in June, they attended a Garden Party we hosted with our partner NEST, a nonprofit dedicated to alleviating poverty, empowering women, and promoting peace through the successful creation of artisan businesses. Again, Diane and Jerry were impressed, and they wanted to find a way to thank IPPF/WHR staff for their dedication and hard work.
After seeing the beautiful merchandise being sold at the Garden Party, the Cunninghams came up with the idea of sponsoring a staff appreciation event. Thanks to a generous donation to NEST by the Cunninghams, each IPPF/WHR staff member was able to choose something special from NEST's merchandise for their very own.
It is our good fortune to have the enduring support of two individuals who share our commitment and vision of sexual and reproductive health throughout Latin America and the Caribbean.
