Create Your Own Event Helping to host a local fundraising event serves not only a fun way to give back but also provides invaluable support to OMID in raising funds and awareness for our cause. You can organize an event as an individual or through a local community business, to raise funds and awareness for OMID. Fundraising events include, but are not limited to: Charity dinners and gala evenings Concerts, pop-up dining and other local community events Private, in home dinners Student awareness raising events Bazaars and market stalls As well as our established annual events in Washington DC, Toronto, the Bay Area, Los Angeles, London, Salt Lake City, and Vancouver volunteers have also organized other very successful fundraising activities. Here are just a few recent examples: OMID Foundation Canada hosted a gathering at the Persian Palace in Toronto. This incredible event was supported so well by the local community that it sold out several days in advance. Many prominent business owners and professionals along with their friends and families were present. Women on A Mission Singapore raised $15,000 through a fundraising evening selling photographic art and collecting donations. In London a team of volunteers successfully raise close to $8000 from organizing a vintage nearly new designer sale and giving the proceeds to OMID also. Peace Meal Kitchen in Detroit raised over $500 for OMID by creating a pop-up dining experience. EE Entertainment raised $10,000 from their 20th Anniversary event for our recent Natural Disaster Appeal. In San Diego A Strings of Hope concert was organised by Laura Farjood in aid of OMID and UN ambassador mountain climber, and keynote speaker Sara Safari gave an inspiring speech too.
