After the hard work our children and parents had put into this fund raising project, we made about 26,000 baht today!!!
The children were very proud as they had said before the sale that they hoped to make Kazim’s life a happier one. We hope that this money can sponsor Kazim’s expenses for a while.
We hope to keep this project a December tradition in our Pre-K program as the children have learned so much from this project. How do you want us to transfer the money to you? We hope to do it on Thursday as we still have a few items left and hope to sell them early next week.
