Hi Friends of Tabitha:
Rockin4Tabitha9 is in the books, and we had a blast.
Nine years, 118 houses, hundreds of wells, and $$$ towards the building of 3 schools. We are making a difference, and it is thanks to the support of our friends that this can happen.
One anonymous donation of $5500 was bumped up nicely by Tony Sottile of Modern Niagara Group. Tony has supported us now for 4 years. His cheque for $15000 will go a long way. Add the 5 houses ($5500) that we builders are throwing in, as well as a few more thousand that is outstanding, and we are now at close to $30,000!
As you remember our goal this year is a village ‘from start to finish’; 25 houses, 100 field wells, family partnerships, and a 5 room school with a total price tag of just under $90,000. Will will be sending our $$ over to Janne in early November, so it is not too late to support if you weren’t able to attend on Friday.
We have so much, and our Cambodian recipients, (who are exactly the same as us) have so little. We are making a real and significant difference in their lives.
For those of you who were there, heartfelt thanks.
If you still wish to donate you can mail a cheque to the Tabitha Foundation of Canada (mark r4t on the memo line), go to Canada Helps and follow prompts (again target r4t within Tabitha); instant tax receipt, but they take 4%.
Or buy us a beer and hand us a cheque in person.
Thanks to: Johnny Vegas Band, who put on a GREAT show, Tony Sottile and MNG, our anonymous friends from NYC, Mel and Jess for helping work the door, and to our hosts Dylan Black and Sarah Freemark.
Thanks also to our supporters, everyone who helps with graphics and printing, and silent auction donors - Stoneface Dolly's, Canadian Museum of Nature, Perfect PC, Karen Lechner, Gilmore Printing, GraphiCalci, N-1 Thai Boxing Academy, Compact Music, Metro Music, Carver's Comprehensive Combatives, Students on Ice, Yangtzee Restaurant, Tabitha Foundation Canada, Lightbox Technologies and Why Not Studios.
And once again to all of you who took the time to attend, see you next year!!
Max, we missed you and are thinking of you!
Bob and Wendy and Dr. P
Rockin4Tabitha works through the Tabitha Foundation to help change the lives of the poorest of the poor Cambodian villagers from one of despair to one of self-reliance. A village makes this transition because Tabitha "does it right", in a holistic and sustainable manner, all the while providing help while maintaining the dignity of the villagers.
