You are probably going to hear us start talking about a very special Mother's Day fundraiser we've got coming up, so I thought to tell you about it now!
I was very fortunate to have Johan from Pikto Gallery (www.pikto.ca) sponsor us in printing high quality photo greeting cards that we are selling for Mother's Day. Pikto is a super great photography store in the Distillery - they do professional photo finishing, camera classes, host photo exhibitions in their gallery, etc. I'm thankful for their support.
Three photo cards
We printed 200 cards with three designs. One is of a House Mother (women who look after the children at the orphanage) with a baby on her back; another is a black and white photo of a House Mother holding a sleeping child in her arms; the last is a group of boys at the orphanage hamming it up for the camera.
There is a note on the back of the card that says proceeds from the cards will go toward a scholarship fund to help the boys and girls of the Nzirambi Orphans Talent Development Centre go to school.
A special Mother's Day message
We decided to keep the cards blank inside so that they can be used for any occasion.
I gave one to my friend for her birthday and she loved it.
However, using a special, clear paper, we printed a special Mother's Day message that says:
With the purchase of this card you are
honouring the Ugandan mothers who died
during childbirth and the women who now
take care of their orphaned children.
There are 70 boys and girls at the
Nzirambi Orphan Talent Development Centre;
and seven House Mothers to care for and love them
as if they are their own children.
Thank you for your support. Happy Mother’s Day.
Please donate generously
For the cards, we are asking for a donation of $5, $10, $20 or more.
Please do contact myself, Monica or one of the sellers listed in the previous post if you are interested to make a donation.
