Angel Progress

The demand continues for African Aids Angels. The Times Colonist article has created an enormous amount of interest. We have deposited over $6000 into the Angels account since the news story appeared. Over $1000 of that has come from direct donations and the rest has come from the sale of angels. We need everyone's effort just to keep up with the summer sales. It looks like we will be able to fulfil the requests of all four projects for this year if we continue at this pace.

See you on the 18th or the 31st!

Smile Cards for Angels

Aids Angels has a new supply of Thrifty Smile cards. We are still eligible for their program. If you are a Thrifty shopper and use the cards to buy your groceries, the Angels receive 5% of your purchase. This program costs you nothing and is a great fundraiser for our projects.

Try it out. Email and ask for a Smile Card. Send your postal address and we will mail it to you with directions for use. Ask all your friends to try the card too!
