Then, we also received a few books donated from a community member here in Madison that had been collecting bilingual Spanish/English children's books free in boxes of Cheerios. Apparently there are free books available in boxes of Cheerios roughly through the end of April. Check it out and please consider saving and donating the books to the Camarones Community Coalition!
This coming week is a fundraising event at Woodstock's Pizza in Davis, California. If you live in the Davis, CA area, please consider going out to eat for some Pizza on Tuesday, April 24, 6-9 p.m. at Woodstock's Pizza, 219 G St., Davis, CA 95616. Print out this flyer and bring it with you when you order from the bar or the front counter and 20-25% of the purchases will go toward the fundraising for the community center in Ecuador! How cool is that!! Check out the history of Woodstock's Pizza, which is pretty amazing story. Not only do they have gluten free crusts, they also pride themselves on being green and recycling whenever possible. So, check them out, and help support a local restaurant, as well as the mission of the Camarones Community down in Ecuador!!
And, I am going to be giving a presentation at the Meadowood Neighborhood Center on Thursday, May 3rd about work here and in Ecuador. So, if you live in the Madison, WI area, please consider joining me for a fun discussion. Here are the details being sent out:
