A good day at AWC’s Spring Fling

AWC and the International Church of Copenhagen (ICC) joined forces to hold a mini-bazaar, the Spring Fling, at Skt. Andreas church on Saturday, 14 April. Mary Stewart Burgher ran the book sale (with able assistance from Myra Lewinter, Margaret Hunter and Pia Fredfeldt – who also entertained the crowd with music). Cyntheia Singleton sold jewelry and Clarice Scott (with help from Ditte Lisbjerg) sold accessories. ICC members handled the café and Helen Jensen of ICC (and the Bead Shop) sold gifts. Democrats Abroad staffed a table to register US voters.

Thanks to all the AWC members who donated items for sale, volunteered and/or came to buy on the day; AWC made about 4,000 DKK and ICC, about 1,000 DKK – all of which will go to our charitable projects. AWC raised money and reduced stocks in the storage room; our customers got bargains on good merchandise and everybody had fun. It was win–win–win!

AWC Denmark sponsors two orphans in Kenya

Vision Peoples Mission, Kenya – Report from “our orphans”

Xmas greetings from Vision Peoples Mission, Kenya, situated in the Nairobi slums, which run a program that provides orphans with education and medical care. AWC has been supporting two orphans, who live with foster families. I recently received their school grades and both of them are above average in their classes. Parvaneh, an AWC member, has written several encouraging letters to our "children".  

We invite all our members and their families to write and send words of encouragement (and small gifts, if you desire). For children, growing up without parents, these letters validate their existence and give them courage to persevere. Write to awcbazaar@gmail.com for their address. 
Below is an email from the matron in charge of the orphans.


Dear AWC,

We thank you for your Christmas card that you sent to Karen and Erickson.

The card was lovely and both Karen and Erickson were very excited to receive such a beautiful gift from you this Christmas. Thank you for your prayers and support to these destitute children.

May your New Year be peaceful, joyful and blessed. Pass our sincere gratitude to Parvaneh and members of AWC. 

Yours grateful
Mrs Dorine Ngesa
MATRON

Jewelry Donations

Cyntheia Singleton, our dedicated jewelry saleswoman would like to remind all our members once again to go through their jewelry to see if you have anything that is not being worn any longer and which you would like to donate to our fundraising efforts. Cyntheia’s constant efforts with the sale of jewelry at our meetings and other events provide the club with a steady trickle of funds that we can pass on to our chosen charities.

So take a look through your drawers, treasure chests and cubby holes to see if something you’ve tired of needs a new enthusiastic owner!
