CEF's fundraising event yesterday went well
I did a presentation about CEF and there were some questions. There were a variety of ways to raise funds on the day and before. Several people had been selling raffle tickets to raise funds for Tet Food Parcels. These food parcels are for the very poorest of CEF's children who can't afford to celebrate at Tet (Vietnamese New Year).
Some of the funds raised will be used for the education of children we have interviewed who are in need of sponsorship. Pam had plants for sale too which helped to raise funds. Pam also makes creative, interesting and beautiful mosaics. Some of Pam's friends had ordered some and others she had for sale too were sold. The profits from them went to CEF.
Drew one of Pam's son's very kindly donated a second hand laptop and a mobile phone to CEF as well. The computer we will pass onto one of our tertiary students and the phone to a parent of one of our CEF student who has no phone and no other means for us to contact them.
We are very grateful for such wonderful support.
