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.

 

Buchanan’s Tiempo Para Compartir!!!! March 12, 2012

As I mentioned in my previous post, I´m working as NGO´s partnership manager in Colombia for RockCorps. And last week we launched the program we are working on in Latin America, with our whisky partner Buchanan’s, which is launching its news program Share Your Self!

This year we will be trying to change the minds of 8.000 people, who will be doing 4 hours of community service, donating in total 26,000 hours, in México D.F., Caracas and Bogotá. And we will be celebrating this with a concert, in a very RockCorps´style in May.

Here in Colombia, we will be working with 9 NGO´s with 40 projects. We started this past weekend, and let me tell you the reaction was amazing!

Here is a video to see what all is about:

This events is one of my favourite not only because I have been part of the team since 2008, when I as the production intern, is because the whole atmosphere of the event itself. 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.
