The message below is from Diego and Marlene Samper, who run the Calanoa Reserve in the Amazon near to the indigenous village community of San Martin. I am going to be working on a project there in January. Every year Diego and Marlene ask the local village communities near the reserve what they need the most and then endeavor to raise enough funds to turn it into a reality.
You can either mail cheques directly to the address shown below or send the money directly to me via the PayPal link before the raffle day, on Nov 28th. I will get the money to them along with your details for the raffle. If you live too far from Vancouver to be sure that your mailed cheque will arrive in time for the raffle, then PayPal is your best option.
thanks! Every little helps. jamie
Our next project is with the San Martin community, a Tikuna community about 10 km from Calanoa. We are going to supply the school cafeteria with much needed pots, plates, cups and cutlery.
Diego Samper again is going to donate as a prize one of his very lovely art photographs as a contribution to the school. The tickets are 10 dollars and we will announce the name of the winner on November 28th.
Thank you again for your important support, and please see the attached photograph donated by Diego.
You can send your donation to Diego or Marlene Samper 15 24 Port Mellon Hwy Gibsons BC V0N 1V6
And for each 10 dollar you will have a ticket in your name.
thank you from Marlene and Diego
