Fundraiser Honoring David Baldwin Barnes FEB 28th 6-8pm
February 25th, 2013 Feminista Jones
Every now and then, we’re reminded that life is entirely too precious and we ought to live it to the fullest. Recently, a few of my friends lost a close friend and colleague in a tragic accident. I asked how I could be of help. They’re having a fundraiser to help his family manage costs involved in bringing him back to the U.S. Please read below and contribute. Every little bit helps.
Pay it forward.
We are so saddened to have lost a very dear friend, and the world lost a budding social entrepreneur. While living in D.C., David Baldwin Barnes was recognized as one of The Hill’s “Movers and Shakers” and he took his relationship building skills across the sea to Ghana where he was a partner with SOLVE, a sustainable agriculture business. Anyone who knew him knew he lived an “OUTSTANDING” life and inspired us all to the same. Please join us in celebrating his life and legacy. The fees associated with bringing David back home are exorbitant, and this event will go a long way in helping his family. Our goal is to raise $25K. David never missed an event especially one for him–so come in your finest attire and raise a glass to the most stylish man we know, David Baldwin Barnes. From all of us we thank you for considering a donation.
