I am happy to report that the first happy hour organized by United Prosperity’s (first) New York Chapter was a successs! Despite torrential downpours, over 30 people came out to learn about United Prosperity and spread our message.

Everyone had a terrific time.  Nevin Shetty and I said a few words to the group about why anyone who is passionate about sustainably eradicating absolute poverty should get involved with United Prosperity.

A special thanks to Columbia University’s Microfinance Working Group for co-sponsoring the event, to the Leela Lounge for hosting it, and to Lisa-Marie Gil and the other New York Chapter organizers for their outstanding job in organizing it.

We look forward to organizing many more events. Please join us one facebook as well : http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=100842699351
