25 “Friends of New York” gathered at Café Carusel in Helsinki on the last day of July during the hottest summer in Finland in 50 years… Talk about global warming! Former FCF volunteers and interns, relocated American expats, Finns returned from years in New York, and other fans of New York rekindled old friendships, exchanged news, and got current information in Finnish about FCF’s Kota Project. Many others sent messages saying they were still at their summer cottages recharging those batteries that keep us going through the long winter! Seems like this event still has its place in our summer calendar!

Hope everyone enjoys the rest of the summer, and remember to support our campaign at Kota Project: Making Global Voices Matter in NYC | Kota Project -’s Fundraiser on CrowdRise
