Want A Free Trip to VEGAS?

Wel,l the semester is winding down for us, only one more week to go. Then we have a month to focus on fundraising, family, and delicous holiday food. This upcoming week will be a busy one for all of us. On Friday Rumble in the Jungle is happening at Social. Sarah has tickets on sale, and it's going to be an awesome night. Then on Saturday, December 3rd, it's Around the World at Felicita's. This is also going to be a fun night. We decided on Around the World beacuse someone will be going home that night with a trip to Vegas to plan, while we are planning our trip to Kenya. We are encouraging people to dress up in their most imaginitive worldy costume. Do you have a kimono in your closet? Or maybe a toga that hasn't been put on yet this year? Well, buy a ticket (only $5 in advance, $6 at the door), throw on your awesome outfit, and head to Felicita's. There will be door prizes and a prize for the most outrageous outfit.

Once again all the money we raise from ticket sales will be used towards improvements in Ulamba, and the students' education. If you're interested in buying a ticket please find one of us, Jayne, Chelsea, Melanie or Sarah. We will be selling tickets on Monday, November 28th from 10-11am in the Curriculum Lab in MacLaurin. We will be in there throughout the week, also we will pick a few times to be in the SUB, so let everyone know. Everyone is welcome, you don't have to be an education student, or a student at all! Leave a comment on here if there's a good time for us to be selling tickets, or email us at for info or tickets for either night. (Go to both if you really need to party that weekend.)
Also, we have two awesome bands playing throughout the night, The Archers and Weak Patrol, both local, both fantastic. Thanks in advance guys!
Doors are at 8pm, trust us, you don't want to miss out.

Bake Sale

Many thanks to Ooh La La Cupcakes for donating a generous amount of gorgeous cupcakes to our cause. We could not have reached our amount if it were not for you!

Shahin, not only our first buyer, but a huge asset to our fundraiser. 
Thank you Shahin.

Here they are. The fine people who made our fundraiser the succcess it was. Lauren, Emma, Danny,Shahin, Rachel, Kaycie, Brianna, Sarah, Taylor,Alicia, Erin, and all the rest, thank you. All these special people put so much love and energy into baking incredible baked goods for the bake sale. Lauren hand wrapped rice crispies drizzled with dark chocolate, as well as oatmeal and chocolate cookies, and placed a Dr. Suess quote on each individual treat! Shahin and Emma made homemade cupcakes which were iced with Canadian maple leaves. Brianna baked two full containers full of chocolate chip cookies, while Danny brought incredible homemade cakepops to the table. And, we can't forget about Taylor who's beautiful voice lured students into buying our baked goods.

Here is the lovely lay out! A HUGE thank you to Bubby Rose's and Mocha House on Cook Street. Mocha House donated the coffee, cups, and carob bars without hesitation, while Bubby Rose's was more than generous by contributing muffins, croissants, gluten free cupcakes, and cinnimon buns fresh from the oven.

Our customers were incredibly satisfied and your treats and caffine kept them coming back for more! Thank you. 

I just wanted to say THANK YOU  to each and every person who supported our cause by either donating, baking, or purchasing something at the Bake Sale. In the end, we raised over $700 dollars, which I would call a success!! The children in Ulamba will be more than grateful. I cannot put into words how much I appreciate all of what you have done for us. I am thoroughly impressed and extremely happy to have people like you in my life.

You are all creating change and benefiting others in more ways than you know.

Thank you again.
