Barbatuques and Thanks-4-Giving
As a part of Global Rhythms, CHRP partners with over 50 non-profits
from throughout Chicago. Groups like the Brazilian Cultural Center,
the Chicago Food Depository, Book Worm Angels and the International
Latino Cultural Center of Chicago will send their patrons to the show
and receive 50% of every ticket that their supporters purchase! It's
another way Chicago Human Rhythm Project builds community with rhythm.

We encourage you to tell your favorite non-profit organization about
this program. With a national decrease in charitable giving in 2008,
this program is a simple way for any non-profit to raise money! They
simply need to call 773-281-1825 and ask for the Community Development
