THANK YOU to everyone who chose to support your school through the Drive for Schools fundraiser. It is an important one in that it allows all of us to reach outside our own pocketbooks to friends, relatives, neighbors, and business associates. Along this line, thank you to Jessica Cambell for setting up the ticket sales opportunity at Deluxe Foods in Aptos.
Drive for Schools raised $13,755 for our annual and capital funds, which, unfortunately, was quite a bit short of the $20,000 goal. We will need to make up this shortfall in our other fundraising efforts this year.
Photographs by Shmuel Thaler, videos by Devin Kumar and stories and songs by Mount Madonna School juniors (now seniors), from their travels in South Africa in June 2013.
All proceeds benefit Botshabelo, a home for AIDS orphans in Magaliesburg, near Johannesburg and Pretoria, in South Africa. Mount Madonna School students visited this village in 2013 and 2011. See 2013 blog posts at www.santacruzlive.com/blogs/mtmadonna/it-takes-a-village and 2011 posts at www.mountmadonnaschool.org/values/children-of-botshabelo
