The PWFC held its annual Fall Auction in November.
There were many unique items up for bid and we ended up
raising $3,552 for Project Edan. I would like to thank
everyone who participated, both the bidders and those
who donated items, for making this fundraising event such
a success. This brings our current yearly donations to
We have a couple new ‘must have’ items available for
purchase – our first Project Edan Holiday Ornament and
the 2010 Holiday Greeting cards. First is a beautiful
ceramic ornament with the full color design from our
2009 Holiday card printed on the ornament and tied with
a bright red ribbon for hanging. Dated with one line for
Project Edan 2010, this would make a great collectible
item for you, a family member or a friend this holiday. It
is a limited edition ornament, with only 55 being made for
our inaugural year. Second, capturing the joy of the
winter season with a set of unusual snowmen, the 2010
holiday card was selected from several entries by Peter
Wingfield and his family. The card celebrates diversity
and the commonality of all people. The message inside is
simply: “May the joy of the season warm your holidays.”
You can order these items on our new Store page at
The continued generosity of our Club members is helping
support UNICEF’s latest efforts in Haiti and Pakistan.
Those of you who follow Peter on Twitter probably saw
his tweet on the threat of cholera in Haiti. The latest
report I received from UNICEF has confirmed that a
cholera outbreak is endangering Haiti’s most vulnerable.
Issue 57 - 4th Quarter 2010
As of 12 November 14,642 cases and 917 deaths had been
reported. With little to no sanitation and poor hygiene practices,
flooding caused by the Hurricane has accelerated transmission
patterns for cholera in the area. Nearly half of all children in
Haiti still have no access to sanitation facilities and approximately
one in 5 children lacks access to a safe drinking water source.
Because Haiti has not had cholera for 100 years, it was not
considered a health priority. Limited financial and other resources
required that authorities concentrate on diseases determined to
be a more immediate threat. The source of the outbreak is still
unknown. UNICEF's priority is the containment of the disease.
UNICEF has been working with the government, UN partners and
NGOs, with the aim to cover 5,000 schools and 554 residential
care centers with hygiene promotion, soap, access to safe water
(through the use of Aquatabs® and/or chlorination) and the
maintenance of sanitation. Prior to the outbreak, UNICEF and
partners constructed a reported 14,763 latrines and 5,549
showers, distributed more than 7,000 cubic meters per day of
chlorinated water and trained 4,035 hygiene promoters that are
working in camps.
I mentioned in the last issue of LFT that Ree and I are re-
designing the Project Edan website. Well, we’re almost ready for
the launch. Peter has approved the design and layout and we are
just finalizing. If you visited the PE Store link above you were
treated to a preview of what’s to come. As I mentioned, we hope
to be able to feature fundraising efforts of our members. We are
looking for things that you’ve done to raise money for Project Edan
and any fundraising ideas that you have for the club. If you have
any questions or input, you can e-mail me at email@example.com
or Ree at firstname.lastname@example.org.
