Bracelet Fundraising a Success September 7, 2006

Posted by worldvolunteers in Uncategorized.

Thanks to all those who bought bracelets and supported the people of Kashmir, we have been able to raise $1850 Canadian (100,150 Pakistani rupees). The money has  just been sent to Pakistan and will fund the building of a new school for roughly 400 boys and girls in the Panjkot/Kollian district. Currently, children have to walk up to 90 minutes over mountaineous terrain to get to school.rubble1.jpg

Along with the building of the school, this fundraiser has brought a lot of awareness to the situation in Pakistan from western parts of the world.

As well, considering an average labourer in Kashmir will make roughly $3-4 a day, $1850 being put into the local economy, via labour and materials for the project, will go a long way in making a difference in the lives of those devastated by the earthquake. They will know that people of different nations and different religions care and want to help, hopefully bridging the gap between cultures.

Thank you very much for your support.  I will post pictures as soon as I get them.

Just came across your blog through this entry– great site. This looks like an incredibly powerful fundraiser you put together. I’m a huge fan of these bracelet fundraisers because they raise money and awareness at the same time. Keep up the great work.

This post is a bit older but I just discovered it. How did you start your bracelet fundraiser? Any tips?
