Thorn Tree Benefit
I am back in the USA and it is time for another Thorn Tree fundraiser!!!!!!!!!!!
I hope you can all come -- please mark the date -- Tuesday May 8th --in your calendars and I will remind you when it gets closer to the date. Those of you have been before can confirm it is a really great event -- lots of bargains to be had and lots of fun.
The invite is attached -- please feel free to send it on to friends and bring as many people with you as you like.
We did really well last year, we made nearly $40,000 in donations in and around the event.
We spent it on several important items:
1. Another dormitory for the school -- we now have a total of four -- two for the girls and two for the boys. We can sleep 200 students in comfort!!
2. Camels for the school which give lots of milk for the boarders.
3. And a well --we hired a massive drilling machine to dig a 110meter bore hole for the school -- this is a major achievement in a desert area and with pipes and a solar pump they will have gushing running water very soon!
4. We also bought lots of school uniforms, beds, mattresses and desks.
It was a great year and I have photos to show of everything at the event.
We are hoping to make $60,000 this year so please come -- we need you!! -- and bring lots of clothes/books/DVDs etc with you to sell.
See you there,
