This Sunday, the 11th of December, please attend a fabulous fundraising event at Pedro's Inn, benefitting LIBERTY CHILDREN'S HOME. There will be live music, fabulous bar-b-q, a jump-a-thon, free use of the pool all day ....... please come and help make it a GREAT event!!

To learn more about Liberty please visit this website: <www.libertychildrenbelize.org>

Liberty provides healing and shelter to abandoned, abused and neglected children from all over the country of Belize. Liberty is supported almost entirely by private donations. With current economic difficulties it's harder and harder to raise money for even the most deserving of projects. Liberty needs your help.

Last year the Liberty fundraiser at Pedro's brought in about $17,000 Bz for the kids at Liberty. This year we hope to do as well - but we can only do it if we have support! YOURS !!

Proceeds will go for one special Christmas gift per child (spending $100 Bz per child, and having a generous discount on purchase price from the store); a cash Christmas bonus for each dedicated caregiver, site staffer and teacher at Liberty; and a deposit at BEL for payment of ongoing power bills for the home.

This is all important, all wonderful and all needed. It will only be possible if you pitch in.

Starting Sunday at 11:30 AM at Pedro's Inn:

Live music!
Fantastic Bar-B-Q!

There will also be a jump-a-thon with students from Island Academy, with some of the Liberty children joining in. Kids for Kids - it doesn't get much better than that --- !!
There will also be a silent auction of fabulous items ....... a sample list of things available for bids is below --- there will be even more than you see on this list, so why not do your Christmas shopping at the auction, buying one or more of these prizes as gifts!

Buy some Bar-B-Q tickets ---- give them to your staff, your friends and neighbors.
Come to the party and bid on prizes at auction.
Drink a few beverages, knowing that 20% of your bar-tab will go to the cause.
Join your friends and neighbors for a yummy lunch and a happy afternoon for one of the best causes ever.

Please pass this announcement to anybody and everybody you know who might be able to join in this event - THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU.

Here is a bit about why this fundraiser tomorrow is so important. All help is greatly appreciated. Thanks Marty and Dianne for posting it and getting the word out.

Over the last year Liberty has lost part of its funding and presently has a huge problem with their monthly utility bills. For example the electric bill runs over 3300 bzd per month. The hope is that the fundraiser will be able to pay for 3 months electricity.

it is also hoped that enough money will be raised to buy each of the kids a special meaningful present, and to provide each staff member with a 100bzd bonus which will help them to celebrate xmas. The final monies will be used to bring the children to San Pedro on December 11.

Many people and institutions have offered to help with the Island Academy having a sponsored jumpathon. Many local businesses and hotels have donated prizes, and substantial ones at that which people will be able to bid on in the silent auction and purchase raffle tickets. Presently many people are selling bar-b-que tickets for the event and it is asked that everyone buy at least a couple. The price is 12bzd and all profits will go to the fund. 20% of the bar is being donated, and all raffle and auction monies will also be donated.

If you have a prize to donate please contact Cindy @ pedroís 226-3825.

Come on out for a great time on December 11 and spend a little money of which almost all will go to making sure that these children have a good Xmas.

p.s. The island always needs raffle tickets for fundraisers. If you have spare room in your suitcase please consider bringing some. They can be dropped off at Crazy Canucks addressed to Nancy Scott - she is the fundraiser raffle and 50/50 girl and came to our rescue for tomorrow as Caye Supply was sold out.
