Vima Lupwa Homes: Upcoming Events + Ways to Help

This just in from Vima Lupwa Homes. -hoc

Home for orphaned and vulnerable children in Zambia
"We care and bring families together"

The Vima Lupwa Home has lots of ways you can get involved and help. Please contact us if you are interested in helping with any of these events:

Garage Sale
September 27th - 8:30 to 3:30
440 NW Congress St. Bend Oregon
Volunteers needed all day.
If you would like to donate please only drop off clean, nice, sell-able items anytime prior to the 27th.

Fall Festival
The Fall Festival booth Oct. 4 and 5 in Bend, Oregon. This involves helping to put up and take down as well as manning the booth. We will be selling lots of awesome African merchandise as well as give out information about Vima Lupwa Home in Zambia. Any volunteer time would be really appreciated.

Holiday Cards
We are again selling our annual children's art holiday cards. The cards are sold in bunches of 10 (all recycled paper with soy-based ink). We would like to start selling cards late October to early November. Last year it was a great success and we need all the help we can get. This could involve selling them at local schools, downtown, at functions, to your friends and family, your choice -- any help would be great!

2009 Calendars
Thanks to Richard from Nativity Lutheran we will be selling a 2009 calendar featuring our Lupwa kids and their art work. We need to get the word out for these to be a success.

Your own ideas
Your ideas are welcome. If you have fundraising idea to help our home for children in Zambia we would love to hear it. No matter your age or experience these are all of our children and it takes all of us for this home to be success.

Thank you for your time.
