Calendar of Giving -- October 2015
 
Our monthly Calendar of Giving offers supporters an easy opportunity to get involved. The items featured are difficult to find in Cambodia or too expensive for our teachers and students to obtain. The Calendar of Giving is open to supporters worldwide, and your collection campaign can be big or small. Remember, every donation counts!
 
April Collection Campaign:     TOILETRIES
 
Students receive instruction on proper hand-washing and dental hygiene--practices that we hope they bring home. Hygiene kits are regularly distributed to village families at community meetings where health practices are also discussed. To keep supplies in stock, we rely on generous and consistent contributions.
 
At the present time, we are in particular need of bars of soap to support our healthy hand-washing initiatives, however donations of any items will be greatly appreciated.
 
Please consider making a donation of these basic items:
  • Toothbrush (with soft/medium bristles)
  • Toothpaste (small or medium; with flouride)
  • Small comb
  • Bar soap
  • Washcloth
  • Nail clippers
Please keep items in original packaging, and please do not send liquids.
 
Caring from afar.... 
No matter where you live in the world, you can join in the spirit of giving with our Calendar of Giving without having to collect physical items or worry about international shipping costs. With your donation, CFC staff will be able to purchase the items directly in Siem Reap. By donating on-line, your gift benefits Cambodia twice - once by directly helping kids and once by benefiting the local economy!
 
To make a monetary donation to our Calendar of Giving, please click here. CFC staff will purchase appropriate toiletry items in Siem Reap. A contribution of USD$10 will be directed towards the purchase of one complete hygiene kit.
