Recognizing the important work of the Grameen Foundation, Isom Events chose to support the foundation's mission this holiday by making a gift of $500 in order to contribute toward helping the world's poorest, especially women, improve their lives and escape poverty through access to micro financing and technology. As part of its holiday party on December 2nd, Isom Events made a contribution of $10 for each person attending. Also attending the event was a representative of the Grameen Foundation who spoke on behalf of the non-profit organization. In addition to the Isom Events contribution, several guests were so moved to make an additional $250 in contributions for a total of $750 generated at the event for the Grameen Foundation.
"As a woman-owned business here in the Washington, DC area I felt it was important to recognize the struggles and challenges of operating a successful business by supporting the imperative work the Grameen Foundation does every day top help those with my same aspirations in developing economies," said Ms. Towan Isom, owner of Isom Events. "At the Isom Events holiday mixer we were privileged to have so many of our clients share the holiday season with us celebrating the success our company has had over ten years of operations. I could not think of a better way to show our gratitude to our clients than to share our success in a way that will help others pursue and attain their economic dreams," said Ms. Isom.
"It is a remarkable thing when companies like Isom Events identifies with the Grameen Foundation's mission to provide access to micro-loans for poor women n who are working to develop or expand a small business. As a woman-owned business itself, it is clear from this generous contribution that Isom Events recognizes that micro-business creation plays a vital role in helping families to escape poverty and build a better future for their children. We are grateful to have supporters like Isom Events," said Ms. Kari Hammett-Caster, Grameen Foundation Director of Online and Annual Giving.
