A Teacher’s Legacy

We were so moved by the generosity of the Reid family when they donated boxes and boxes of books and school supplies for the children of our Foundation. These items were from a woman named Marilyn, a math teacher, who has retired and moved to Manitoba to be closer to her family. Phil and Vicky Baril kindly delivered the two van-full loads to our doorsteps.

Although we have never met Marilyn, seeing all the children’s literature she had for her students, the lessons she had scribbled in her daily planners, the sharpened pencils ready to be used, all the construction papers, blocks and sticks, and the countless textbooks she had studied to enrich her skills, you knew she had a great love for teaching and for all her students. Her legacy will live on in all the young lives she had touched and all the children she will be helping from this day forth. We honour you, Marilyn Reid. With deepest appreciation.

Thank you!
Dear friends, Thank you so much again to you, dear family, friends and honoured guests, for making our 5th Annual Fundraising Gala on Sept 30/17 a huge success. Together we were able to raise over $40,000! We are truly grateful to everyone for your great support so that we can carry on with our work to improve the lives of impoverished children and orphans in Vietnam. Our event would not be possible without our amazing MC Dr. Cecile Phan and incredible local artists - Native Performer Amanda Lamothe, the VSUE (Vivian, Natalie, Van, Katelynn, Teddy, Hardy, Ken&Henry, Minh-Thuy) Dancers, the Truong Lac Hong school little dancers (Celina, Mai, Hong, Angela), and Michelle&Lily Dang. Our silent auction would not be possible without the kindness and generosity of local businesses, and our Arizona Getaway raffle was made possible by the generosity of Mr& Mrs Heuver. And thank you to all our volunteers for all your hard work and dedication to making our evening a great success.
