When you get involved in an activity, that grows into a movement and put your heart into turning it into a community, amazing things happen. Human connection inspires!
Here is the story:
After about a year organizing and holding FuckUp Nights in Basel with my partner Isabelle Valibus, creating an open and diverse community of people sharing their real life stories and what they learned, I decided that it is time to meet like-minded people from other locations.
I am now in Mexico meeting the FuckUp Nights family members in Puerto Morelos. The reason: the 5th birthday of the global movement. Unfortunately all plans changed due to two earthquakes that recently happened in Oaxaca, Chiapas and Mexico City.
So instead of a FuckUp Night in Puerto Morelos, a Bazar con causa was organized by the team here. Knowing first hand from family and friends affected in the regions, the decision was to personally help with what the can.
In the below video interview Niza is personally telling how it happened that so many people donated their services during the 8 hours of the Bazar: Local Mexican Food Specilities, Massage, Cartoonistas, Henna Painting …
Look around you and support each other.
If we all look around us and help the next person, we will all reach.

Very early this morning Niza and supporting friends – among them Dejan from FuckUp nights Vienna left with a truckload of things.
Humble and happy to have met Niza – have a very safe trip!

Mexicans aren’t counting on the government to rescue them. They’re saving themselves
