In January an annual regional business event for companies was organized in Manado. Simone was invited as a speaker at this event. Many companies offer their products or services for free as marketing.
Simone came up with the idea not to give away 3 large prizes for free, but to auction them for charity. The auction was a great success and Simone raised a nice amount of money for the schools in Lembeh, Raja Ampat and of course our own school in Tongkaina.
