Once again we were blown away by the kindness and generosity of all of our supporters. We are thrilled to announce that the grand total from our 10th Annual Fundraiser is an amazing $105,000, as well as an additional commitment of $3,000 to come in monthly donations. With these funds, we will be able to do so much to support entrepreneurship and skills training programs, repair houses and provide widows with livestock.
Enormous thanks to everyone who attended this year’s event, it was another fun and inspiring evening! A new addition to this year’s event was the highly successful African market, filled with Rwandan crafts. Combined with our wonderful silent auction, it was a great occasion to find the perfect gifts for the holiday season. We also heard about the 2016 Rwanda volunteer trip from Eveline Goodall and Jim Arthurs, who provided their reflections on their wonderful experiences, and from Louise Manzi, who gave a heartfelt message of thanks on behalf of all Rwandans.
Thank you to all of our generous donors, both in attendance as well as all of the mail in donations. As always, your support is much appreciated. We couldn’t do the work we do without you, and on behalf of all Rwanda's survivors, thank you so much!
Our final thank you goes out to our wonderful volunteers the volunteers who make the event possible year after year.
Please keep us in your hearts for this upcoming year and considered making monthly donations. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Wishing you and your families’ happy holidays and all the best for 2017!!
