#HashtagLunchBag - Last Sunday of Every Month
#HashtagLunchbag was first started in LA by a group of friends who wanted to give back to the local community. The idea of providing a lunch for the less fortunate turned into a movement which has since spread around the world! TK Nguyen, one of the founding members of Visit Nha Trang, first brought #HashtagLunchbag to Vietnam back in August 2015. Since then it has provided over 7000 lunches for the less fortunate in and around Nha Trang. On the last Sunday of every month, a business sponsors the food which volunteers assemble with a message attached. These have been thankfully received by many members of the community.
We have changed how we do #HashtagLunchbag to better suit the needs of the communities in Vietnam! There are many extremely poor communities in the countryside surrounding Nha Trang and it is our aim to be able to have a deeper impact on some of these communities’ lives. Not only will we be providing a lunch for these communities we will also be providing them with food that they can use after the initial lunch. We will be sending up a team of volunteers who will be helping the community; teaching, cleaning, and doing odd jobs. We want to build relationships that can help bridge gaps between the extremely poor communities and the more affluent cities.
TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
