Centennial Students Raise $200 and Rotary Club Donates $1,000

Donation from Centennial Students

A huge thank you to my magazine writing class at Centennial College who took time out of their incredibly busy semester to hold a Christmas bake sale for the kindergarten in Laos. They raised over $200, which will go toward the children's desks, benches and tables--right now the children sit on a cement floor. The sale was organized by our newest Jai Dee volunteer, Karen Drodge. Thanks a million to Karen and everyone else who made this event a great success. I heard a number of stories of students staying up late to bake and beautifully wrap their creations, and then working hard to sell them; please know that I was moved by your thoughtfulness and kindness. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

Donation from Rotary Club, Chilliwack, B.C.

Also a huge thank you to the Rotary Club of Chilliwack, B.C., which generously donated $1,000 toward helping the kindergarten school project in Muong Khong. This support will make a huge difference in our ability to help the children. We very much appreciate your support.
