Dinners of Hope

DOH Event2

All Around the World

Dinners of Hope have been held across the globe since 2002. From small and intimate gatherings to events for over four thousand people; each year more and more people are getting involved!

What do I need to do?

In return for the event that you organise, ask your friends to make a donation as a contribution towards the meal.  This means everyone benefits: you and your guests have a great time, while increasing awareness of the impact of HIV/AIDS in southern Africa and raising funds to help us, support more children left orphaned by the crisis.

Planning for your Dinner of Hope

Your dinner of hope could be a quiet family get-together with family and friends, a summer braai or cocktail party. Or how about having a murder mystery or a themed night with fancy dress.

Pick a date, time and venue and get inviting! Social networking sites are best for this but why not send invitations through the post , the old fashioned way!

Mandela Day, Tuesday 18th July

On Tuesday 18th July we celebrate Mandela Day to commemorate the lifetime of service Nelson Mandela gave to South Africa and the world. The day encourages people to embrace the values Mandela shared and to donate 67 minutes of their time to make a positive impact. This Mandela Day, why not host a Dinner of Hope, raising money to bring life, hope and opportunity to the children Starfish cares for?

Can you rise to the challenge? Volunteer 67 minutes of your time and see what culinary feast you can create!
