Watoto 2009

Dad and I are members of a volunteer team that is planning to go to Uganda in August 2009 to help out at an orphans' village. The main goal will be to build a house or classroom at the village, and we are now raising funds to cover the building costs by asking people to sponsor "Bricks of Hope" at $10 per brick.

If any of you would like to contribute, then you can write out a cheque made payable to "Greymouth Anglican Parish Watoto" and send it to Greymouth Watoto 2009, c/- P O Box 27, Greymouth. Alternatively, you can make a direct credit to the Greymouth Anglican Parish bank account 060705-0378767-00 (National Bank, Nelson) with "Watoto 116-12N" as the payment reference.

If you make a direct credit, would you please post a comment and tell me so I can confirm its gone through.

Tax receipts will be sent out to those who ask for them and who provide an address.

Please note, the funds being raised are NOT for our travel costs, etc. Any contribution you make will be used for the building project.
