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 Dan Blix for all the graphic Sobey's

Gravenhurst for our Saturday Bill and Dora Rathbun

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.
