Wishing all our lovely supporters a wonderful holiday season!:)
This fall has been an active one for the Nicaragua School Project. We collaborated with students at Royal Roads University and held a small fundraiser in the cafeteria- and raised $400.00. It was fantastic to expose our project to more people--spreading our message of friendship, and that 100% of our funds go to our cause.
Our school supply project went great in September--all 600 children received their school supplies. We purchased art supplies for the preschoolers & necessary supplies for the teachers. We even had 500.00 to put back in the bank, which we will use for our upcoming school supply project in February. We still need about $1500 for the upcoming project-- so if you are looking for a last minute Xmas gift for the "person who has everything" or would like to donate in the new year, please make the difference:
Just contact me as well so I can keep track of donations:)
I have updated the blog a few times this fall--so have a look! http://www.nicaraguaschoolproject.org (media page.) I am quite active on social media with the project- so jump on board if you're looking to become more involved.
I appreciate all your contributions and interest in our little project- which will be turning 4 years old this February 2012. It's amazing what can happen when you have a dream.
Muchas Gracias & Feliz Navidad. Kathryn & Andres & Juan Carlos
