Over $5,500 Raised at Our Record-Breaking GIANT GARAGE SALE!

WOW! What a record-breaking GIANT GARAGE SALE it was!





Just over $5,500 was raised for latrines and wells for two Banyan


Learning Tree School building sites in rural villages in Takeo


province, Cambodia.





Gravenhurst Curling Club Filled to the Brim!


It would not have been possible without all of the dedicated


volunteers and donors who made this A Mine Free World Foundation Sale


the success it was. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart - it


was alot of work, but rewarding work, because many children in these


Cambodian villages will benefit from Hygienic Toilets and Clean Water


at these two schools.

 
A Huge thanks goes to Jay and Linda Harrison who helped so much to


organize this sale...to Dan Blix for all the graphic work...to Sobey's


Gravenhurst for our Saturday Sandwiches....to Bill and Dora Rathbun


for keeping us perked up with their coffee for 2 days...to the


Gravenhurst Curling Club for letting us fill their rink with


stuff...to Muskoka's wonderful publications for their support...so


many of you to thank!

We raised more than what we needed for the projects at hand. With the extra we raised, Thoun - a bright 18 year-old disabled student (limited mobility and smaller limbs on right side of body) in the small village of Pheam in Siem Reap Province, Cambodia will be starting a weekend school for young children in his village. He receives educational support from A Mine Free World Foundation and has been waiting for the opportunity to 'give back' by helping young children in his village receive extra help with their studies.
