COLOMBIA – BUCHANAN’S TIEMPO PARA COMPARTIR – BUCHANAN’S SHARE YOURSELF April 10, 2012

We have completed a month of Buchanan’s Tiempo Para Compartir in Colombia, Mexico and Venezuela.

Speaking from the inside of how this program has been, we are extremely proud of what we have achieved and how Colombian people have responded to donate 4 hours of their time helping the community, meeting new people, and building good things. I personally have to say that has been a busy month, but full of enjoyment. Working with the charity partners has giving us a tremendous energy of good things and we want to keep working. And you know what? The people who have been volunteering want to come back, and not because of the concert or artist (which by the way we still don’t know who it is), but because how good is to feel that you are helping other people and doing something good for the community.

We are almost there, but for now wanted to share with you some videos of what we have been doing.

This is our first project, building a community centre in Ciudad Bolívar with the charity Un Techo Para mi País:

 

With Arcángeles, we are building a technology centre, with recycled bottles (pet bottles). This project has taken us a lot of work, but is amazing how is coming together, and we are looking forward to see it finish.

 

One person at the time, and we can change the World! January 31, 2012

One person at the time, and we can change the World!

With this philosophy RockCorps started in 2005 in United States, and now they have changed the mind of more than 81,000 people who become volunteers that have donated more than 324,000 hours of their time to social causes, in USA, England, France and Israel.

Now RockCorps is starting projects in Latin America in Mexico, Venezuela and Colombia, and I am happy and proud to be part of the planning team in Colombia who will deliver this amazing program, more news to come and here a video that shows what exactly RockCorps have done, and I will be doing this semester.

The amazing people who put this together, the great group of volunteers who offers their time just to be part of this, the audience who come to enjoy and find all those new bands that Lisa and Jenny put together for us to know, and the venue, The Custard Factory itself that bring a unique energy and atmosphere that always make want to be part of it.

I started being a production intern in 2008 in charge of the merchandise area, and I did it so well (that was Lisa and Jenny said), that last year I was the Production Coordinator. So is a great place to build your career and learn.
