Members of RCEPI have been busy crafting Happy Bears at home during lockdown. The bears are crocheted, knitted or sewn by our talented team, and the results can be seen on our website www.rotaryestoipalace.org.
We are asking the public to join us and make a difference to someone’s life by sponsoring a Happy Bear. Go to our website and sponsor a Happy Bear and help some of those most at need in our community. You can pick your individual bear and funds raised will go to support two local charities who do so much to support the under privileged in our society. At the end of the fundraiser the Happy Bears will be donated to the two associations for the children.
The Refugio Aboim Ascenção in Faro looks after abandoned, abused and neglected children between the ages of three days and eight years old.
APEXA, Associaçao de Apoioa Pessoa Excepcional do Algarve, is based in Albufeira. It was founded 18 years ago by Sr. Nuno Neto when his son was born with Spina bifida. Currently they are supporting families with children who need physical and educational therapies for their disabilities and are also teaching parents how to cope with the responsibilities these measures bring.
RCEPI’s new online project is giving you the opportunity to truly make a difference to those in need. By sponsoring a Happy Bear, you are effectively sponsoring a child and you will have the opportunity to follow up on what a difference your donation can make to a child’s life.
If you would like to join us and make your own Happy Bear to be included in the sponsorship opportunities, please contact us, as we will be arranging online workshops to show you how to crochet a Happy Bear.
