“The First 32 Fund, initiated in honour of Col Karen Ritchie, now has six full sponsorships but we are still a long way from the goal of 32 sponsorships. The camp fund was set up by members of the first group of Lady Cadets and the women of her graduating class to help send 32 girls to GGC’s upcoming Guiding Mosaic 2010. This was an event very dear to Karen’s heart and one in which she had been greatly looking forward to taking part. The cost to send one girl to camp is $900.00. It would be incredible if we could meet this goal by Valentine’s Day.
Anyone can make a contribution to the fund, no matter how large or small, online at http://www.canadahelps.org/CharityProfilePage.aspx?CharityID=s19473 or by contacting Lynne Hodgson at Girl Guides of Canada (phone 1-416-487-5281 x228, or email [email protected] ). When you make your donation please reference the “First 32” Camp Fund. All donations are tax deductible.
If you require more information about the First 32 Fund and how this will help young women, do not hesitate to contact 14481 Linda Newton at 613-949-5861 or [email protected]. ”
