It is with great excitement that we announce that our 2009 Calendars have arrived and are available for sale. Our friend Kristine Ambrose has been working hard to get the design perfected using her photographs from her visit last year.
We are very pleased with the outcome and think you will be too. The sales of the calendar is our major fundraising event this season. We know that money is tight all over the world right now and for this we especially appreciate all donations made to Proyecto Laguna. We are hoping to sell all 1000 copies before the end of the year. These funds will give us the budget to purchase school supplies for the new school year starting in January as well as keeping our nurse on staff and supplied with basic necessities.
For those of you in the United States, purchasing calendars is easy. The donation per calendar is $20 each. Simply go to this link on our website to use our secure server: www.proyectolaguna.com . Click on "Give Now" and use the General Donation option. You will receive a confirmation email including a tax deductible letter. Then your calendar will be mailed to you from Los Angeles.
For purchases in Nicaragua please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org and we will let you know where they can be purchased or get them to you. The cost for the calendars in Nicaragua is 200Cordobas and we can accept cash or checks.
This is our first year selling calendars as a fundraiser and we hope to continue in the future. Please consider giving the calendars as gifts this year for the holidays. The donations made for each one goes a long way here in Nicaragua to make a big difference in the life of a child. Remember that all donations are tax deductible. Also, if you are interested in helping us sell them at your work, school or church, please contact us and we will be happy to send you as many as you would like. Thank you!
