A dozen CNIS volunteers set up an information table at the entrance to the store and offered home made cookies (made by said volunteers!) and hot apple cider to the costumers braving the Vancouver rains.
We are most grateful to The Shakti Dance Society and the Hearts Drums and Space who kindly preformed for us and helped make the fundraiser both fun and memorable. Thank you also to the most helpful Ten Thousand Villages staff, and especially Kristen.
CNIS welcome partnerships as these with local businesses to raise funds and awareness for our life-saving work in Africa. If you are interested in talking to us about a potential partnership, please contact us today.
