Social Riviera project is a fundraising project designed to raise money for non-profit organizations, charities, social enterprises and community projects.
We believe that small positive actions today can have an impact on tomorrow’s world. “We can do small things with greatlove” (Mother Theresa).
1° We select three projects every year from the following areas:
2° We create a fund online for each project where you can give as little as 1€ depending on your budget and inclination. Riviera bar crawl & Tours makes an additional contribution 350€ per month.
3° At the end of the quarter, we collect the money and send it to the selected projects or organizations. We publish the results of our fundraising following each round so you can come back and see how the money was spent.
