darkstar Events UK Appoints Official Charity (31st August 2011)

darkstar Events UK are pleased to announce the appointment of our official charity for 2011/2012 - Mary's Meals!

Mary's Meals currently feed over 500,000 underprivileged children every day throughout the world from Albania to Malawi and their ongoing Backpack Project is just one of their worthy initiatives which darkstar Events UK are proud to support.

Why Mary's Meals Backpack Project? Most of the children who benefit from Mary’s Meals and the Backpack Project have suffered war, poverty, famine, or natural disaster. Very often families cannot afford to buy basic items like pencils and copy books, or even suitable clothes for their children to wear to school. As a result, these children miss out on school and an education. A simple backpack with educational materials can be a lifeline to these children as studies show that an education is the best way a chronically poor child can escape poverty in later life.

You too can become involved with Mary's Meals Backpack Project on your next Team Building or Corporate Event. Just choose your favourite event from our varied range of Teambuilding Programmes and we will incorporate the charity element for you. Imagine the prospect of a day that benefits your team and helps others to attain a better future - Corporate Social Responsibility that's easy and fun to achieve!
