A New School for Kenya

Yesterday, a friend and I went to the Lindor Reynolds’ Garden Party.  Lindor Reynolds is a Winnipeg public figure and journalist, currently fighting brain cancer. Lindor chose to focus on raising funds to build a school in Kenya, in order to focus on something positive, rather than focusing on her illness. The Garden Party was a successful fundraiser to help Lindor acquire enough funds to build a new school in Kenya.  Lindor is partnering with Craig Kielburger and the Free the Children charity.  The Garden Party featured a “brick wall”.  Everyone attending was given a large, rectangular “sticky” on which to write his or her name and then stick it on a “brick”.  It was also possible to purchase individual “bricks” for $20.00.The room was decorated in an African Safari theme (Creating a Scene, Winnipeg).  It was a lovely, emotional and inspiring event.
