Children’s Picture Book: Ten Cents A Pound

Oct 25/17 Update:  Release Date April 10/18!!
Dear Friends, You can Pre-Order a Copy!
July 2017 – After one of Nhung’s CVBF visit to a village in central Vietnam two years ago, she was inspired to write a little children’s picture book story about the struggles of the children/youth in the community. The story was well-received by a publisher in Toronto, Second Story Press, and she was granted a contract with them last year. We are now able to catch a glimpse of the beautiful work of award-winning illustrator Josee Bisaillon in bringing Nhung’s words to life. Nhung had donated all the funds from her contract to the Foundation and will do the same with all the proceeds from the book, Ten Cents a Pound, when it is published in spring 2018. Thank you so much for your ongoing support.

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.
