A quick update to the numbers as I foundout another member made a substantial donation directly to Shelterbox. The newtotal is just over $5,500.00 (amending the just over $4,500 number), meaning atotal of 5 ½ boxes from the Club and our Member's and the Gov't match means atotal of 11.
This does not take into account the matchfrom the challenge at one of our members office, so there will be more to come,however I don't know when.
Hello all Barrie-Huronia Rotarians
As I updated the Club yesterday, between members donations and our Clubdonation, we have raised over $3,000 which translates to 3 shelterboxes will beon their way to Haiti. With the Federal Governments matching program another 3boxes will go, meaning our Club and Members are responsible with providing 6boxes in total! Thanks to all who have supported this program to date!
As this initiative is to assist with immediate relief, I will take donationsuntil Friday, so for those who may still be interested, please let me know byreturn email and I will be happy to have it added to your next quarterlyinvoice and will also ensure you receive a reciept from Shelterbox Canada.
Thanks again to all those who have generously supported this project, youare making a difference in peoples live's.
