** Please note the date for this event has changed to August 11**
Altruism is good for the soul, good for the heart and good for the people being helped. The Chirimoto Development Project is applied altruism in its purist form. We have provided a bookmobile to take books to schools full of children who do not have any others. We have provided the means for delivering clean water to whole communities suffering with chronic parasites. We have inspired a new sense of hope and community spirit in a town that was devastated by floods and destroyed as a community in the process.There is a LOT more to be done in Chirimoto. We are up to the task, but we need your help to finish the job. Without the financial backing of all of the Friends of Chirimoto we will not be able to complete our work.
Please help by joining us on Saturday evening, August 11, from 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm at the Olde Colonial Café in Norwood, MA for our First Fundraiser. Hear from CDP's founder, Jerry Hopcroft as he shares stories of success (and some travel tips!) and expands on future goals.
We are offering a wonderful buffet dinner, a fabulous Silent Auction selection, including vacations in Maine, a gift basket of the finest chocolates available, hours of tutoring in math, chemistry and biology, a family photography package, highly collectible Hummels, a voucher for digitizing old photos and videos, and much more.
If you cannot join us on the 11th, please consider helping by sending a generous donation to the Chirimoto Development Project,Inc., PO Box 161, Norwood, MA 02062.
