Mid-Island Angels

If you're near Parksville BC on Saturday November 3, check out the beautiful Angels made by the group based in Qualicum Beach.
  • World Craft Bazaar - fair trade gifts from around the world
  • Knox United Church, 345 Pym St, Parksville
  • Saturday November 3, 10am-3pm
Update: They sold 90 of their 104 angels and raised $900!

The Qualicum group describes itself this way

"The Parksville/Qualicum group began in 2006 as a social justice action project with the KAIROS (United Church) organization. Towards the end of 2011 that initial group transformed into a smaller autonomous group.  

Since January 2012 the new Qualicum Beach/Parksville group meets on Monday afternoons in a Qualicum Beach home to create Angels. We use donated material and accessories from local businesses and local residents as well as out-of-town interested parties. Because of these many donations and because of discounted fees for any required services by local businesses, our low operating costs allow us to remit approximately 97% of funds raised.  
Currently, our angels are available at a local florist shop and we participate at local events by displaying our angels for sale. We also raise funds through special orders for events and celebrations."

Congratulations on your transformation. We are so grateful for your continuing efforts!
