Circles Project

Circles Project

By Vinicius Demian

Representing: Brazil

"The juice from the oranges used to make the cordial is not used in my bar. So, thinking about making this return to our community I decided to bottle the juice and send it to a project here in Sao Paulo called "Gente é pra ser feliz, não pra morrer de fome" from Rodrigo Oliveira's restaurant (Mocotó).

This project delivers lunchboxes daily to homeless and vulnerable people. So, we send the juice to increase their impact and to contribute to the project that helps the community to escape hunger. The neighbouring bars are joining the project to make it bigger. And for each cocktail sold, 1 BRL will be donated to Diageo's Project "Learning For Life" which supports the professional training of young adults in vulnerable situations.
