Default BE's 2011 Christmas Cheer

A few years ago Ray suggested that at Christmas we get together and send a little Christmas Cheer to a needy person or organisation. Last year the recipient was one of our own members in need...this year we would like to do similar for the children of Westfalia Orphanage in Peru. This is an organisation brought to our attention by Dakota44. This thread gives you a little background on the organisation. There are 90+ children living at the orphanage...there is no government funding...they rely solely on donations.

It would be nice if we could send Christmas cards to the children and perhaps those that can could make a small donation to the orphanage. When I get an address to send cards to I will post it in this thread. Donations can be made here.

Thank you.

Any amount helps...any amount is not too small when you consider approx $1.50 feeds one child per day. So if you can afford $1.50...it is very much appreciated.

Come on people send some money.

Just think, one less bottle of Eggnog for you means a ninja death-star to some Peruvian kid.

One less case of reassuringly expensive Stella Artois for you means a mobile phone converted in to a taser for a poor orphan.

Send the money you were saving for this months edition of 'Love Me In Leather' and some poor little mite will be able to buy half an ounce of decent Acapulco Gold.

Come on, you know it makes sense.
