‘We do not need magic to change the world; we carry all the power we need inside ourselves already. We have the power to imagine better.’ – Chichi Bhene
Chichi Bhene, one of Councilor, Buchanan & Mitchell’s newest team members, wasted no time in contributing to the firm’s CBM100-Charities initiative, a project through which team members serve charitable causes across the Washington, DC metropolitan region or, in Chichi’s case, in South Africa. Chichi, a senior auditor in Cape Town, spent this past Saturday personally managing a food drive that included 62 meals of a chicken and cheese sandwich, two apples, juice and water and a snack. In her words, it’s all about “trying to change the world with one random act of kindness at a time”.
She and two friends drove around town looking for those who could benefit from the food in campsites or on the streets. This is not the first time Chichi has made this kind of contribution. She says she has worked to help others in her hometown several times in the past.
CBM was lucky to have Chichi join us earlier this year and Cape Town is just as lucky for her generosity.
