Diya Project

The kids will be working on a special Bal vihar wide service project - "Donate a Diya"   to raise funds for gift of vision organization in India (http://www.giftofvision.org/)  and local charities.
Your support with this project is highly appreciated. Last year we had close to 85% participation from our kids and collected more than $1500,  that was donated to Kids with Cancer. This year we hope to raise this bar and met our target goal of $2000. Please support generously towards this cause (suggested donation $10 per child or $20 per family).This service project is special, in that not only it raises awareness amongst our kids to help the needy folks , you will also be able to start a collectible of handmade "Diyas" exclusively designed/handcrafted by your  kids. You can bake them at home and keep them as keep sakes adding your family's touch to the Diwali's celebration. What better joy and light to add to this festive season !!

       We will need as much help as we can get. We are looking for 3-4 parent volunteers to assist the class with the project. Let us know if you can help.
