Event description
Join me to watch Breaking Bread and help me raise $3000 for Amnesty International ahead of my 300km fundraising cycle.

About this event

I have embarked on an epic fundraising challenge with Inspired Adventures to raise funds for Amnesty International Aotearoa New Zealand so that we can build the kind of society we want to see - one where refugees can find a safe place to call home, people in detention are treated with respect and dignity, and human rights defenders can freely stand up for us all.

On the 23rd of November I start a 5 day adventure with a team of inspiring individuals dedicated to standing for humanity. Every kilometre we cover helps Amnesty International to take a stand against human rights abuses.

My goal is to fundraise $3000. You can follow my progress here: https://alps2ocean.raisely.com/amy-thomson

This fundraising screening of Breaking Bread will help me reach this goal. Dr. Nof Atamna-Ismaeel - the first Muslim Arab to win Israel's MasterChef - is on a quest to make social change through food. And so, she founded the A-sham Arabic Food Festival, where pairs of Arab and Jewish chefs collaborate on exotic dishes like kishek (a Syrian yogurt soup), and qatayef (a dessert typically served during Ramadan). A film about hope, synergy and mouthwatering fare, Breaking Bread illustrates what happens when people focus on the person, rather than her religion; on the public, rather than the politicians.
