End of March Fundraiser for Mexico Trip
First I would like to give a big thanks to the Quaker Friends Meeting of Milwaukee for allowing our group to participate in the annual international gift show. The kids were so excited to get started on some fundraising. We got there at 9am and everyone was wide awake helping to set up the tables. As I told all of you last week the kids have been hard at work making decorations, making candy bags and drawings for this event.

They kids were very well behaved and I got very good comments from other vendors at the showing. Many did not know of that many kids sitting for so long without any problems. Some of the boys walked around and made self portraits and many of their drawings were sold. Every child was able to show up for at least a few hours and it was a really good turnout.
Hard at work
Each child that is going to Mexico needs to raise $500 dollars towards the trip and thanks to the generous contributions of so many people a nice chunk can be knocked off of each of their prices. We continue to accept
donations so that all of the kids will have an experience that they will not soon be forget.
Stay tuned for April's updates and thank you for continuously coming back to the C.E.S.A.R. blog.
