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.
