We want to map angel groups, raising funds for African Aids Angels, that are located outside of Victoria, B.C. Canada.
We'll send an email to the groups we know about but if we miss you, please send an email to email@example.com to let us know where you are.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
We would like to make a map to locate angel making groups.
If you are making angels at your home in Victoria, as an individual or as part of a group, we'd like to know where you are located. This will help us plan how to distribute materials effectively.
We'll be sending emails to home groups that we know about. If we miss you and you are planning to make angels any time this year, please send an email at africanaidsangels @gmail.com and tell us where you are located.
