The Uplifting Project was founded on the belief that each person has the ability to make a positive impact on another person’s life.

Our events offer a unique opportunity for each of us to make a difference in our world- and have a fun time while doing it!


Uplifting Week at Tasti D-Lite

We celebrated The Uplifting Project’s first birthday by teaming up with some local NYC Tasti D-Lites for a great fundraising/awareness event!

On two different dates our team met Tasti D-Lite customers and spoke with them about the work we’re doing. Those who mentioned The Uplifting Project while making their yummy purchase had 15% of the cost donated to our cause by Tasti!

Spring Benefit

June 16 & 17, 2011

It was an amazing Saturday night for the many supporters who joined us at Legends Bar and Grill for two hours of open bar and a whole night of fun! We gave away tons of amazing raffle prizes, including a pair of Katy Perry concert tickets donated by VH1! Best of all, everyone left feeling inspired that they’d made a difference supporting education in impoverished communities.

Uplift the New Year

April 9, 2011

Uplift the New Year was our very first fundraising event and we started out strong! So many people came out to Chelsea Manor to hear about our organization and donate to the cause. We raised a lot of money and support for our first project!

After-Summer Book Drive

Our supporters came out after Labor Day to enjoy great happy hour specials at Van Diemens and donate books for the children of Olasiti. A fun time was had by all and by the end of the night, we’d collected hundreds of books that are now being used in the library at Olasiti Primary School!
