Some Karma for a Korma? FRANK Water launches World Water Day campaign
A Bristol charity is asking the world to have a curry in support of clean water projects in developing countries.
FRANK Water funds clean water projects in India and other developing countries, and has announced Karma Korma as its first fundraising campaign for 2013.
Karma Korma takes place on World Water Day on Friday 22nd March 2013.
In partnership with Bart Ingredients, Bristol’s best known producer of herbs and spices, and supported by award-winning restaurant chain the Thali Cafe, the campaign will encourage people to enjoy a curry with friends or colleagues and raise money for safe drinking water projects at the same time.
Those taking part get a pack of authentic Korma spices and an easy recipe, donated by Bart Ingredients, plus some simple fundraising tips.
Supporters can host their own Karma Korma event on Friday, March 22nd and ask each guest to make a donation to FRANK Water though an online donation page or by texting FWKK£10. Suggested donation is £10 per person – the same price as a takeaway curry.
if you don’t fancy slaving over a hot stove but want to get involved, then have dinner or treat yourself to a takeaway from the Thali Café, Karma Korma’s official restaurant partner. The award-winning restaurant chain has pledged to donate £1 to FRANK Water for every customer that comes through the door of each of their four restaurants on 22nd March.
Founder of FRANK Water, Katie Alcott said “We know how challenging fundraising can be which is why Karma Korma is such a great solution. Inviting your friends over for curry is a fun, easy way to support our cause for clean, safe water across the world.”
Thali Cafe PR Manager, Aisling Mustan remarked “The Thali Cafe is excited to work with a local charity such as FRANK Water. It helps us get the word out as well as supporting the fantastic work they do providing safe, clean water in developing countries”
