I am proposing recruiting a local restaurant New Grill to help us distribute free, quality meals to the local population in Puerto Ordaz for a predetermined amount of time. I have been researching the logistics of this project and have found that what haunts the local population, a weak Bolivar, would work to our benefit in our campaign. Namely, we can provide food distribution for relatively cheap.
Amount Requested: This will vary greatly depending on how much marketing we decide to do, but the actual food preparation and distribution looks like 500 quality meals prepared by a chef for about $600 USD. This includes everything including the condiments, napkins, fuel, labor. This rate is per week and assumes a month-long campaign.
Timeline: I am putting on the table a month-long campaign but that could be scaled up. Our team on the ground is very flexible and motivated.
Proposal Goal: We are first looking to do some real good in the world, help out a population that desperately could use a good turn. The secondary goal is positive marketing for the SMART project.
Deliverables: We will prepare and distribute 500 meals per week for a month. The menu includes a hot dog plate, a hamburger plate, and a barbeque plate. We would also like to distribute SMART marketing material (stickers, shirts), produce live video and perhaps even get local radio coverage.
My SMART related experience: I have been in crypto since 2014 and know many from the team from different projects. Crypto has been very good to me and I would be honored and humbled to be a part of a team that can do some good in the world while promoting our project.
Conclusion: I’d like to say in conclusion that with a SMART grant we will be able to provide a quality meal for 500 people per week. We will also be providing short term employment for 5 people. I think more importantly we are stimulating the local economy and truly offering hope for the future. Everyone I have talked to in Venezuela is incredibly excited about this and these people will remember us for our effort. This tragedy affects nearly everyone in Venezuela from laborers to engineers and professors. Venezuela will not be down forever and they will remember who was there in a time of need.
