sale




/we held a fundraiser this weekend to raise money for a friend of hilary's in Cambodia named Beav.

/Beav's mom suffered a severe head injury and is in the hospital in Vietnam awaiting expensive surgery. Hilary rushed around last week pulling together a garage/bake sale.

/So many of our friends donated clothes, lent tables, baked cupcakes and lemon loaf and bread and dropped off cheques. it was so amazing to see people's eagerness to help and to see hearts stirred for someone they had never even met. it was wonderful to get to be a part of something so much bigger than ourselves.

  4. Seems like such a small world-that you can help someone so far away and so fast. Sounds like a wonderful experience!

  6. oh alfie! that is so sweet! I will make sure to pass your good intentions on to hilary, but I think she went to wire him the money today, so it may be too late. /I am, however, very moved by your generosity.
