As many may already know, I am involved in an orphanage in Myanmar that provides a home to about 200 children. What you may not know is that we need to raise over $200,000 each year to keep the orphanage running. In simple terms, this equates to roughly $1000 for every child in the orphanage, which provides them with housing, food, clothes, essential resources, and an education.
We are currently making preparations for our annual fundraising event, the Burma Charity Ball, which takes place in November. Last year we raised a record $109,000 from this event, with all proceeds going directly towards running the orphanage in Myanmar.
One prominent aspect of this event is the charity auction, so we are currently seeking items for this auction. Maybe you, or someone you know, would be able to donate something to be auctioned.
Items from previous years have included:
- Electronic goods
- Sporting goods
- Signed Sporting Memorabilia
-Tickets to sporting, music, or theatre events
- Vouchers for goods or services
- Restaurant vouchers
- Holiday rental vouchers
Please get in touch if you think you may be able to help in any way. Alternatively, feel free to share this post around if you think you may know people interested in helping.
Thanks in advance!
