Our trip to Oxfam

We presented Oxfam with our donation in hope that it will play a small but helpful part in the overall effort.

As you might remember, I had pledged 10% of the profit from our two Hands On courses in January to Oxfam for the Tsunami Relief effort. Well, I'm happy to report that today, Emilie and I presented our local Oxfam shop with a cheque for £350. Along with our personal donations at the start of January we hope that this will be a small but helpful drop in the bucket for Oxfam, who are not only helping with the current Asian crisis but with other, less-heard-of and sometimes less-spoken-of disasters around the world as well as longer-term programs like their current Make Poverty History campaign.

While talking with our local store manager, we were very happy to hear that Oxfam has actually received enough in donations to fund their work in the Tsunami-affected region for the next five years.
