Hello everyone, some of you have been asking if I will be holding my annual holiday sale for Guatemala.
The answer is that I will be taking part in a larger sale at UofT’s Rotman School of Management on Friday, December 1 from 11 am to 5 pm. I’ll be joining 30 vendors from the Rotman community showcasing unique gift ideas for everyone on your nice list. There will also be food, kid-friendly activities and a special guest (the fat man in red) will also make an appearance. Full details are online. I’ll be there will the clothing and accessories from Asociacion Maya de Desarrollo in Sololá, fairly traded coffee from Guatemala as well as jewelry from Casa Milagro. Feel free to share with your friends and family.
And as requested here’s a photo from the graduation of the grade nine class on November 6. Gregorio, the school director, told me this week that enrollment has started for the new school year which begins in January.
Thank you for your ongoing support of the school. Your donations are used to pay the salaries of the teachers each month. You can donate online through Casa Pueblito or mail in a cheque. (A cheque actually ensures that more of your money goes directly to the school!)But here’s the link for online donations –
(If you are donating online please follow: under “Donate To This Charity Now”, please select option #2 “El Triunfo School Project.” You may also wish to indicate that your donation is for Ken’s School in the note.)
You can also mail a cheque payable to Casa Pueblito or drop one off with me.
