Monica doing a good job and little Ali wearing a pair of wings she found in the sale. Ali is our Nepali granddaughter. She was a big help in explaining the charity and at one point piped up and said to a customer “I was made in Nepal”

Well we had a great day, the weather was so good to us, volunteers superb, donations enormous, and we made a whopping $2,818.00. Still some more to come from some bigger things that I have advertised, fish rank, trampolene, windsurfer and a piece of art work. I cannot thank everyone enough. This really helps the charity and takes a lot of the worry out of running it.
The money will be used for different things including extra tutoring, helping kids go onto college (I have a few of them coming up in the next couple of years) and their sponsors may not want to cover this. We can also give some help to the two schools that we work with, they have many needs and this helps many children. Some will help with admin costs such as website hosting and office expenses unfortunately these things do have to be paid. Also we now have to pay an auditor in Nepal each year as we are now registered there. Also I am always paying extra money when I am there to kids that need different items or medical attention. We are considering starting a sewing project in Pokhara which we hope will be possible in the spring of 09.
So a huge thanks to all involved. It was sure worth the work.
