step 1 - Sign up to host a dinner

Get started by registering to host a dinner and start your fundraising page so each guest can donate a seat in our family homes around the dinner table. Set a fundraising goal for your dinner - $300 supports a child in a family for a month. Choose your dinner date anytime between September - November. Have fun planning your menu! Once registered, check your email to receive creative ideas and next steps to make your dinner (or meal any time of the day) awesome. Keep an eye on your mailbox to receive our Selamta Family Dinner Host Gift.


step 2 - Invite and fundraise

Set your guest list, extend the invite and be sure to share the link to your personal fundraising page so your guests can donate in advance of your dinner to make sure each of our kids will have a seat at their family table.


step 3 - Tips and Tools

The menu is entirely up to you. Simple or elaborate, intimate or a full-blown party, you choose! You can download our online tools with Selamta information to share as well as simple recipes to go with Ethiopian spices, why coffee and popcorn are perfect together and how your dinner guests can get more involved.


step 4 - dinner's ready  

Let's eat! The table is set. You've planned, invited, chopped, grilled and baked. It's time to enjoy the company of friends and family in a special way that only happens over a meal. Celebrate how your collective impact is making a difference in the lives of children. Every $10 provides a seat at the family table for a day. Encourage your friends to host their own dinner and watch your impact multiply.
