                  ABOUT C4C
                  Classrooms for Cambodia is a volunteer fundraising project
                  started in February 2009 by Mike and Noelle Magluilo. Our
                  objective is to raise $19,000 to help build a much-needed
                  school for kids in Cambodia. We are working in partnership
                  with two established charities in Cambodia, American
                  Assistance for Cambodia (a US-registered charity) and HOPE
                  Worldwide (a UK-registered charity).
                  WE NEED YOUR HELP: either through direct donations;
                  sponsoring or participating in various fundraising projects;
                  organizing your own fundraising event; or simply spreading the
                  word to your family, friends and colleagues.
                  We are putting our own money into this project and taking
                  nothing out, other than memories, new friendships and the
                  satisfaction of delivering our goal.
                  Please join us.
