The G Moms want to send out another huge thank you, for the fabulous success of the Yard Sale. Not only did we get quality donations, which netted wonderful freewill donations, but we also received very generous donations for the donated articles. Did you see how many times we had to say “Donations ?”
Picture this !!! On the afternoon of Friday June 2nd , people arrive with articles they have saved for us. They know we are empowering and enabling Grannies and Orphans in Africa, and that 90% of our monies go directly to the projects, The articles are then sorted as best we can, and Saturday morning the enthusiastic and generous crowds arrive. Organization, mixed with chaos, prevails for the day, and by 2 p.m. the Scout Hall is back to normal.
We are close to a profit of $7000. That means a lot of food, clothing and school uniforms. The orphans can further their education and increase the likelihood of a better future for themselves their country. Grannies can start income generating projects, so they can become self sufficient.
However, on the other side of the picture is the fact that many items were being re-used, and some people were able to access some items that may have been unaffordable in some cases. A G- Mom Yard Sale is a great way to set up for University.
Thanks especially to the Focus, the Star, the Standard and Caps for their ongoing support with publicity. Also a special thanks to Port Perry Salvage and Glen Page for their continued help with very much needed “ BINS .”
