MaD [Mona and I] will be travelling to Cochabamba soon with Chalice, a child sponsorship program. Chalice.ca supports 1200 children in their 4 sponsorship sites in Cochabamba. We will be working at those 4 sponsorship sites and raising our awareness of the needs of these children. M a D, 2 of 20 volunteers going to Bolivia, have been asked as a group to raise $20,000 to fund the creation of computer labs that these children can access through the sites. We will be taking 3 or 4 suitcases of items donated by Calgarians that can be used by the children. We are also encouraging family and friends to consider sponsoring a child with Chalice.ca. Last year Chalice received an A grade in MoneySense magazine’s Charity 100 rating (http://www.moneysense.ca/planning/2015-charity-100-grades/).
Some of the gifts collected!
