A BIG THANK YOU to Sabella and Tamara for organizing, hosting and bringing in most of the sale items for the Garage Sale for Haiti. The sale raised $58.31 ($116.32 with CIDA matching funds) to send to Haiti. As we did with the previous donation – these monies will be donated to the UNICEF Haitian Relief Fund.
A few more donations came to us for our Haiti fundraiser, and today, we sent $257.00 to UNICEF for Haiti. Thanks to everyone – we are truly the little school with the big heart!
The following special update from Haiti was sent today from UNICEF.
Starting Thursday, November 19th, Home Learners will be making felted mittens for the homeless during knitting time.
Donations of used 100% woolen products (sweaters, scarves, etc.) will be greatly appreciated for this project. If you don’t have any around the house, they can be purchased at thrift shops (I will be sleuthing these out at the Sally Ann this week.) The condition of the items doesn’t matter.
Please wash the items in hot water and dry in a hot dryer before bringing them to the classroom.
