The Oneness-Family Peacekeeper Holiday Bazaar

Students in grades 4 through 8 from the PeaceKeepers Club at the Oneness-Family School hosted a Holiday Bazaar during our annual Festival of Lights celebration, all proceeds designated for Amman Imman.

Both before and after the performance, parents and their guests strolled by tables laden with beautiful crafts made by the students and parents, art supplies, handshaped cookies, woolen gnomes and fairies, music CDs donated by local artists, school t-shirts, books and essential healing oils.

As they worked at their stations, each Peacekeeper wore a badge that said "Amman Imman: Water is Life, Milk is Hope".

One of the most popular items were raffle tickets for Gerry the Giraffe and Chula the Cheetah. Next week, the winner will be announced and two lucky children will take these friends home.

Parents stopped by an information table to talk about the water crisis in the region, view some of Ariane's pictures, and take home handouts that explained Amman Imman's mission to build permanent water sources.

Two girls from the 6-9 year old class sold hot chocolate to the guests, and were very excited to put all their earnings in the jug marked "Water for Niger". Altogether, approximately $750 was raised for the project, not including the raffle earnings. The PeaceKeepers were very excited to send in the check, along with two private donations of $1000 and $250 for a total of $2000!
