Dear BEF Family,
We hope this email finds you safe and healthy, wherever you may be.
A global pandemic is not the ideal time for a lively get-together, so, we’ve decided to cancel our annual Park Walk Fundraiser—your wellbeing is more important to us than a silent auctioned box of Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, no matter how delicious they are. This event also constitutes our largest expense each year; so, with that in mind, we will be moving away from annual Park Walks and streamlining our approach going forward. In order to pass on as much funding as possible to our young women, we invite everyone to simply make a donation through our website or via check (PO Box 752, Crozet, VA 22932).
BUT, we are happy to announce that we are currently working on a way you can order our yearly custom t-shirts and totes online. Details coming in mid August.
Since we won’t be able to report about the girls in-person at our annual gathering, we will post updates on our website, and our Facebook page. Recently our South African director reported, “Our BEF students were blessed to be able to continue working online during the lockdown, and even now. All current students have been kept safe during these challenging times and are pushing through with the same determination as before.” We are grateful for their safety and continued dedication.
We hope these small changes to the BEF allow for everyone to stay safe, be involved, and maximize the positive impact on our students. They are so grateful for the blessings of your support and generosity, especially now.
