Changes Coming to A2A

November 16, 2011 at 8:07 pm Leave a comment

It’s hard to believe the holidays are just around the corner and 2011 is coming to an end.  We feel so grateful for all the opportunities we have had this past year: from our first documentary screening at the Alamo Drafthouse to our recent tent at Fun Fun Fun Fest and subsequent visit to Texas State University, we have felt a lot of love from the Austin community and beyond as we continue to grow.  Our team definitely has lots to be thankful for this Thanksgiving, and it’s a large part due to all of you!

At the moment we have raised just over $7,100 toward our first goal of building a Community Training Center that will provide educational and dormitory space in a remote village outside of Siem Reap.  We definitely could not have made it this far without the backing of Edge of Seven, the non-profit that has served as our fiscal sponsor over the past several months.  At the end of this month, our sponsorship agreement with Edge of Seven will come to an end, and we want to express sincere gratitude to Erin and her team at Edge of Seven for their support this year. 

This also means that at the end of November, Austin2Angkor will be on hiatus as we set up with a new fiscal sponsor.  So if you have been meaning to give or are already feeling the holiday spirit, please be sure to make your donation within the next 15 days while we still have online donation capabilities by visiting www.crowdrise.com/austin2angkor.  Whatever we raise within the next couple of weeks will be sent to Cambodia where the initial stages of the Community Training Center will get underway.  Every little bit we are able to raise between now and then will go a long way!

Thanks again for all your support this year–we wish you all a happy Thanksgiving and look forward to getting back in touch with you soon about our next steps!
