Social Butterfly Successfully "Wings"  Miami

Social Butterfly Foundation Successfully “Wings” Miami  

Social Butterfly Foundation’s first event an overwhelming success

Miami   -   Aug 18, 2011   ---   

Social Butterfly Foundation hosted two events on August 13, 2011 to raise backpacks and school supplies for foster children in Miami. The two events were a success with participants donating over 50 backpacks along with hundreds of school supplies.

“We are so grateful to the community for their outpouring of support and excitement for the cause,” Ingrid Mejia Social Butterfly Foundation’s founder said, “it is truly a symbol of what this community has to offer.”

The first event was a bike ride in conjunction with Emerge Miami, where participants rode a 10 mile course with wings to gain awareness and promote the school supply drive.  Local and national companies located in Midtown Miami contributed gifts and time towards the cause.     

The second event was the “Wing Walk”, where Social Butterfly Foundation provided wings to the art walk participants for a suggested donation. The goal was to raise money for the supply drive and increase awareness of the need for mentoring and arts awareness amongst the youth.

"The environment of Wynwood Art Walk is exactly what we are working to promote.” Mejia explained “It was encouraging to see that our organization’s goals were so well received by the community that we wish to foster.”

Social Butterfly Foundation will donate the supplies to His House Children's Home & Children's Home Society and looks forward to future partnerships with this and other foster care organizations. The next event will be their next volunteer orientation to be held on September 3, 2011.

Social Butterfly Foundation is looking to raise awareness to gain support and volunteers in order to continue to grow their mentoring program and expand the support of the local art community. Information on volunteering and donating can be found at www.socialbutterfly.org and also on their Facebook page Social Butterfly Foundation.
