There were many components that contributed to making this year's Living Beyond Ourselves a huge success!!
1.)We were able to raise awareness, and financially support through our purchases, the 10 not-for-profit organizations represented at the event.
2.)We connected with our community by those greeting at the doors, those helping in the clothing room and by those serving the multicultural food.
3.)We were able to bless our community, and those who might not afford it otherwise, by selling the clothing by donation and not a fixed price.
4.)We collected food for the Kelowna Food Bank and shoes to go to Soles for Souls (all sandals donated at this event will be going to Roatan).
5.)Through the clothing, the baking sold by donation, and the local artisans who donated 10% or more of their profits, we were able to raise over $2,800.00 for Made In Roatan.
These are just the benefits we know about. We are trusting that God has used this event to do infinitely more in our hearts and the hearts of others, that together we would make a positive impact for His kingdom.
