HIGHLIGHTS FROM YEARS PAST
Note from Fundacion Yo Te Amo: "Before any more time slips away, we want to thank you again for allowing us to be part of your Alternate Gift Fair. The proceeds are assisting with the cost of expanding the Buen Samaritano Clinic's water purification building which provides purified water to the impoverished community of El Floron in Manaba Province of Ecuador. We sincerely complement each of you on your organization and kind assistance we were given when we arrived to set up, during the event and also with your transportation drivers...very much appreciated!"
Note from The Colorado Nepal Alliance: "The Colorado Nepal Alliance is rebuilding a school in Kuri, Nepal, destroyed in the April 2015 earthquake. We are a small nonprofit, and have found that building an earthquake-resistant school is far more expensive than we ever imagined. We have raised enough money to rebuild approximately 60% of the school. The money we raised at the Alternative Gift Fair is helping us pay for the project foreman's salary. We raised more than four month's of his salary! We are so grateful for the opportunity you provided for our organization to raise money in support of rebuilding educational facilities in Nepal."
