A big thank you goes out to the Thunderbird Show Park team for raising more than $11,000 over the course of their two week summer show series! Various events organized to benefit JustWorld included the Horseless Horse Show, the Family Extravangaza Equitation Class, the Groom's Class, various calcuttas, a silent auction, hot dog sales, and the sales of Julia Tops' handmade cell phone charms and covers.
Donation from the Thunderbird Horse Park Summer Series will go directly towards funding theJustWorld International Cambodia Rice for Families Project at Stung Mein Chey. Each of Stung Mean Chey child's family receives 5kg of rice each month, thus reducing the need to send children to gather food scraps or to earn money picking garbage in the nearby dump.
JustWorld is honored to have been such a huge part of the 2011 Thunderbird Summer series and would especially like to thank the Tidball and Zeidler Families for all their hard work and dedication to making a difference in the lives of the children in our projects. A special thank you also goes out to Kim MacDougal, Thunderbird's JustWorld event coordinator, who made sure the events ran smoothly and who also put together this great video of the 2011 JustWorld event at Thunderbird:
