Welcome to CHW Vancouver
CHW Vancouver President, Stephanie Rusen
2016 is here, time to reflect, and then get on with our next events. I have already done my baking for the bake challenge, and I urge all of you to join in the fun. Call me if you want to have a baking party!
Armadillo Shopping Event
The shopping day on October 20, 2015 at Armadillo was a fun experience. It was a party atmosphere as we helped each other find and try on outfits. We shopped, laughed, bought, and raised money for CHW at the same time. We will do this again!
Cary Feldstein, the son and grandson of CHW members received a double lung transplant in November 2014. One year later he shared his story and enlightened us on the BC system and common misconceptions about organ donation.
Atid Chanukah Dinner and Book Swap
During Chanukah, members of Atid gathered to light candles, eat dinner and schmooze. The book swap was entertaining as ever with much laughter, and it was great fun catching up with each other.
Bake Challenge: What are you going to bake?
The Bake Challenge is our newest way of raising donations for our projects. It’s a very simple process: you bake something; take pictures of you with your fabulous desert; you register online; and you email friends and family to get them to bake or donate for you.
Please click here to register. Any questions or help needed to register, call Mary at the office. She knows how to do this.
This will be our fourth annual chocolate fundraiser. The Pesach Chocolates made by Galerie au Chocolat in Montreal come beautifully packaged ready to give or enjoy during the holiday. The chocolate is so good that in my home, my husband and I have hidden the tin each year just for ourselves. I will have to get a second tin to share! There is an assortment of options: dark, milk, with nuts to suit all palates. Details to follow!
Online Card Store
The CHW Online Card Store is now available! We all now have the ability to purchase cards online, customize the messages inside, and easily send them to multiple addresses. E-cards are available too. If you would like to try this new resource please visit www.chw.ca and select “send a card”.
Become a Monthly Donor
Giving to our projects in Israel has never been easier. Now, you can set up a donation plan for as little as $10 a month or more. Please call Mary at the office to set it up for you.
