Thanks to you all, our 2nd major fundraiser this year was a huge success. We donated 100% of our profits from the sales on Earth Day, and partnered with our community and several other businesses to raise $3660 for RAVEN Trust’s Pull Together campaign
We’ve launched a student art show alongside our fundraiser for RAVEN Trust’s Pull Together campaign. The works comes from three East Van classrooms whom we connected with after our Fireweed fundraiser and art show on Inauguration Day. The classes visited Bandidas to study art and its role in democracy, and returned to the classrooms to create their own works of response to the election results.
Over the past few months, we’ve been hard at work testing new possible ingredients and combinations in order to freshen up the Bandidas menu. After several brainstorming sessions, plenty of test batches, and even a fun tasting event, we’ve settled on a few exciting new additions.
As many of you know, we held a fundraiser at Bandidas on January 20th, Inauguration Day. The fundraiser was sparked by the recent election of Donald Trump, and the clear message that emerged from that devastation: beliefs are insignificant if not paired with tangible, meaningful, and transformative actions. When we woke up on November 9th, we knew that as a society we had work to do.
