In the spirit of advancing the global campaign in support of the Congo, Friends of the Congo is encouraging each participating university or community to raise a minium of $1,000 during Congo Week to support our organizing efforts inside and outside of the Congo. A special award will be given to the campus or community that raises the most funds. Organizers who raise the most funds will be awarded the following:
1. An authentic piece of Congolese artwork (including CD's produced by Congolese musicians).
2. A Certificate of Appreciation.
3. An honorable mention and a brief organization profile featured on the congoweek.org website for one year.
4. A personal thank you note written by those Congolese youth participating in our youth project.
5. Bragging rights for the year!
The Peace Village of Osaka, Japan were the previous winners (http://congoweek.org/highlights.html).
All the best in organizing your event. Let's make this the best Congo Week ever!
The Friends of Congo Team!
