Way to Go! Christmas Party Raises Money for Rancheritas
A good time was had by all at last weekend's Christmas party and hook-in, where our group raised $284 CAD for the Rancheritas in Mexico!
Thank you to everyone who participated, and for the food, auction items, sale items, and good company. If you have photos from the party, send them along to Liv for posting on the blog.
From the Rancheritas website: The Rug Hook Project was created in 1993 by a group of expatriates living in San Miguel de Allende Mexico. Their vision was to enhance the lives of rural women in two ways: create scholarships for girls so they could continue their education, Mujeres en cambio, and finding a moneymaking occupation for women, the Rug Hook Project.
