So we decided to add a new section to the weekly newsletter. GrowPurpose is a social enterprise that addresses social and environmental issues in empowering and effective ways. They are also one of our original community partners. Check out some of the collaborations we have been a part of recently…
The Barbados-Charleston Connection
GrowPurpose joined Barbados & the Carolinas Legacy Foundation and Charleston Sister Cities International in playing host throughout the week to Sir Henry Fraser and a delegation from Barbados who were in town May 11-16. This has been a long-running collaboration to build upon the historic connections between Charleston and Barbados. Stay tuned for news about an upcoming pirate-themed event at the Powder Magazine as well as some unique travel opportunities in the near future!
