The second Bristol Soup is fast approaching. The grass-roots crowdfunding project is based on a model developed in Detroit, US and will take place at St Paul’s Learning Centre between 6 – 8.30pm on 18 May.
The aim of the evening is to vote for an initiative that will benefit the local community. The winning project will receive the night’s takings. The model is simple, four projects present their ideas, and each project has four minutes to present their idea. The audience can ask each project four questions. Four pounds buys you a bowl of soup, and a vote.
The project with the most votes wins the money from the door.
Here’s who’s presenting on the night:
No More Taboo
No More Taboo is a not-for-profit social enterprise which sells reusable sustainable sanitary products in the UK and hopes to invest 100 per cent of the profits from sales into charitable projects tackling the taboos surrounding menstruation.
See It From Her
See It From Her focuses on giving a platform to women and girls in underprivileged, isolated or marginalised communities to have a voice through photography.
Helpfulpeeps is a new social network born from a collective belief that life is better when we help each other. It connects people and charities who want help with those willing to help. All help is given free of charge – no transaction or exchange. Each time you help, you earn karma which acts as your social capital on the platform.
Positive Minds offers a creative approach to working with people who are struggling with their mental health and well-being or feeling isolated. The main focus of work is on one to one support, but we also run a monthly coffee morning to provide a supported social opportunity for people who are anxious, struggling or isolated.
