A Big Thank You! (Charity Sale Update)

by Ali on December 13, 2012


Thanks so much to everyone who purchased the Blogger’s Guides at half-price between December 6th and December 11th.

We raised $508 for Divya Shanthi, which is one of the nicest birthday presents I could ask for. :-)

This is more than enough to sponsor Ayshu for another year, so the money will be split between her sponsorship and the new Hazel Sargeant Memorial Fund for college / university students.

(If you’d like to find out more about Ayshu, see the previous post.)

Huge thanks again for your support!

Ali, thank you for publishing Ayshu’s beautiful photo and, in your previous posts, more information about her and her teacher’s very positive words about her. What a wonderful charity project your church group has taken on with your support of Ayshu as well as funds for college and university students. I know you and your husband are getting very excited about the forthcoming birth of your own first child.

Thanks so much, Barbara! Quite a few members of the church support children at Divya Shanthi — from babies up to the students.

Yes, we’re ever so looking forward to having our own little one — will be sending baby photos to Divya Shanthi as many of the children and staff met us back in 2010, while we were engaged. Even though our lives look quite different from theirs on a day to day basis, babies are universal..! :-)
