I was recently told about Wines for Humanity. Wines for humanity raises funds for charity by introducing people to the joy of fine wines. They host private wine tastings and a portion of the proceeds from every bottle directly benefits families in the community who find themselves homeless for reasons beyond their control.
Their vision is "No family in America, with children, should become homeless through circumstances beyond their control. Funds will be raised through wine tastings that bring friends together to experience the joy of fine wines. We are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with finer spirit of hope and achievement."
I am excited about this organization. I love wine and helping towards a good cause just adds to the benefits.
The currently operate in Illinois, Wisconsin, Missouri, Indiana, North Carolina and Michigan.
"All that you need to host a tasting is a room to accommodate you and a few friends (up to 16), 2 hours of your time, and a table for us to setup the wines and wineglasses. That's it! Of course, cheese and crackers are recommended to complement the wine and cleanse the palate!"
You can check them out at www.winesforhumanity.com to inquire about hosting a wine tasting.
The cost is minimal and would make for a great evening amongst friends for a great cause.
Definitely going to work on hosting a wine tasting for my friends and hope that you will all participate.
