Last month, we learned about some of the scary truths that people living in extreme poverty face every day. Whether it is a lack of clean water, food or shelter, issues like these remind us to be thankful of what we have and also motivate us to make an impact in the world. Those involved in Nourish have proven that they just can’t turn a blind eye to some of these frightening statistics.
With Thanksgiving coming up, we want to dedicate this month to those individuals and groups that we are thankful for: our partner organizations, students, alumni, supporters, board of directors and National Office team. We also want this series to be interactive. Nourish community, please comment on blog posts and give your thanks for the different members of the Nourish community!
This week Nourish would like to thank Neil Bagchi, Board Secretary, Executive Committee Member and long time volunteer on Nourish International’s Board of Directors. Each member of our Board offers unique value to our organization and Neil has shown support and enthusiasm for Nourish in multiple capacities through volunteering, leadership, fundraising, and legal advice. He joined the Board of Directors three years ago. Recently, Neil was a judge for Nourish’s new Venture Fund and assisted in vetting and supporting great Ventures ideas within the Chapter Network.
Recently, Neil successfully threw an event for Nourish at LoneRider Brewery along with his co-host, Sean King, of Align Global Consulting. The event not only helped increase awareness about global poverty, but raised money that went towards the Nourish movement. And yes, it was at a brewery, so we had a blast!
Neil graduated from UNC Law School in 2004 and currently serves as President of Incanus Advisors and Bagchi Law.
We are thankful for Neil and the rest of our Board Members for their time, wisdom, and constant support!
