And thanks to Stephanie, Melanie and Rebecca for allowing their porches to also be drop off locations.  This huge amount of fabric will be turned into boxer shorts for our older girls at Dekpor Basic School as part of out Kits4Girls project.  See above for the list of people who contributed.

This month is a very busy time for tribute gifts. Many people like to send their special recipient a personalized e-card and this year was a booming success! The Kits4Girls campaign raised $4088 (we projected needing $4000 for this next step), and the Multipurpose Bowl campaign, which really could be open-ended, came up with an astounding $8000!


Stay tuned for our 2022 Accomplishment video! It is always heartwarming to look back at all that was achieved during the past year.
