Scarf sale in Victoria - an Invitation

SATURDAY, MAY 7th, 10:30 TO 12:30
1648 ROCKLAND (corner of Terrace)
limited parking
Carole Sabiston, the artist, is co-hosting, along with the ICO Guatemalan Scarves-for-Stoves Team, a Scarf Sale in her heritage home. This is a great opportunity to buy yourself or any mothers in your lives a Mother’s Day gift that makes a difference!

Many of you, especially if you have been reading our blog, are already familiar with the work we’ve been doing in small impoverished Mayan villages, replacing open hearths (which are so bad for the health of families and for the planet) with clean-burning, made-in-Guatemala stoves. When you buy a handwoven Mayan scarf for $20 to $40, you help provide a living for a village weaver, and also contribute towards a stove. And every penny we make goes towards the project: we pay all our own travel costs.

Our goal for this sale is to raise enough for 20 stoves - $2,200. Please join us and pass this on to any interested friends.
Please pass this Internet URL on to any of your friends who you think may be able to come.
