“The 2017 BNEC SOCIAL EVENT : A BLOOMING HOPE”
The 2017 BNEC Social Event that was held on July 15, 2017 has successfully ended. As a part of society, BNEC realized that it would not have improved as an organization so significantly without the support of the society. As a token of our gratefulness, we also want to give back to the society through any aspect that needs to be improved, and produce positive impacts for their lives through extraordinary social events. We search and find problems that exist within the society, then we deliver ideas that might solve the problems, and finally organize, and conduct a set of extraordinary events to provide the solutions. Each year, our social event will have different focus and target that aims to the same goal, which is to develop and empower the society.
This year social event wanted to contribute to society especially for cancer survivors that we took the theme “A Blooming Hope”. The goal of this event was to give hope for all the cancer survivors. The 2017 BNEC Social Event would like to get them throwing away their dark feelings to a new hope that will bloom through their learning spirit and boost their sadness to happiness. In this event we collaborated with Komunitas Taufan which a community of volunteers who care about cancer survivors and those who suffer from illness.
There are 3 phases in this year Social Event. First, we have fundraising and donation month. In this phase, we have done several activities to gather fund for the cancer survivors for their needs as well as inviting donators to be involved in this event.
Second, we had visiting weeks. We visited the cancers’ schools and did activities there to engage with them like playing games, Batik painting, teaching them to sing, and watching the magic show from one of the volunteers.
Third, which is the final phase, we have Final Day. FX Sudirman 3rd Floor Mall Jakarta was the place where we gather with cancer survivors starting from 11 AM – 2 PM. In this Final Day, making a crane origami was the main event. Crane origami itself means hope and healing during challenging times (Japanese myths). Not only making origami, but BNEC also prepared a story teller from Dongeng Indonesia and performance from the committee and the kids.
In this Final Day, we shared our happiness together with the kids, their parents, and everyone from Komunitas Taufan. Visitors from the mall also felt the happiness from this event. After all, we hope we can see many events like this to support more children that need our help! To know more about this event, go to BNEC Youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CSDAyxwwJmo
