Water Works 4 Shanto -- you're invited!

Please join us for our "Water Works 4 Shanto" open house fundraiser on Sunday, February 27. This is your chance to help FOVC drill life-saving water wells in Shanto, Ethiopia and beyond. Every drop of your support adds up to make a big difference!

Team Tasfa members from all over the world will be present, as well as a water expert and the local seamstresses who helped us deliver 800 dresses to girls in Ethiopia. You can learn a bit of Amharic and chat with old and new friends over "buna" and popcorn!

We'll sell our fantastic new FOVC t-shirts and hold a silent auction featuring all kinds of goodies--including jewelry, handcrafts and coffee from Ethiopia, work by local artists, and much more!

We hope you will stop by, lend your support and learn more about FOVC's work and our partners in Ethiopia. We CAN change the world together!

What: Water Works 4 Shanto

Where: Dave & Lory Howlett's home in southwest Longmont, CO

When: February 27th, 2011, 3pm - 6pm

Please let me know if you can come to our event! For even more information, visit the Water Works 4 Shanto webpage. Even if you cannot join us, there is a link to donate.

Finally, if you can give something for our silent auction, please contact Becky!

We have been given an incredible opportunity (really, "miraculous" is not too strong of a word!) to serve our dear friends in Shanto--and beyond. I'll share more details soon. In the meantime, please plan to join us on the 27th!
