And We’re Official!

The kind folks at IAMCambodia have agreed to support our project! They came highly recommended by BFT Center and turns out they are actually the US-counterpart to the non-profit organization in Cambodia that directed me to BFT in the first place.  Go figure.

Please take time to learn more about the admirable work they do in Cambodia by clicking here or the new widget in the sidebar.  It really is the perfect partnership for our project.

So what does this mean? It means that they have agreed to legitimize this project by collecting all our donations under their 501(c)(3) non-profit organization status and making sure the money gets to BFT Center safe and sound. It also means that your donation is tax-deductible and any donor who makes a large contribution (typically over $250) will be able to obtain a receipt for tax purposes.

On another note, if you haven’t subscribed to this blog yet, be sure to do so in the sidebar to the right. That way you get immediate notification of any updates on progress or events.

Next up: Finally! The first volunteer meeting!  Here are the details:

Who: Anyone looking for a way to give back through a long-term fundraising commitment & interested in going to Cambodia in 2012 to see their hard work pay off!

When: Monday, January 24 at 6:30-7:30PM

Where: Dominican Joe Coffee Shop, 515 S. Congress Ave. (at Riverside Dr.)–subject to change based on group size.

If you did not receive the Evite (which went to people who already expressed interest), please leave a comment with your name and email address so I can get you on the list. Please only RSVP through there so I can best track who’s coming and update you on any changes if need be.
