Rummage sale for Darfur


My name is Maia Boitano and I am a sophomore at Woodbridge High School. My Darfur Chapter along with a history teacher at our High School are hosting a Rummage Sale. The rummage sale will take place on Saturday April 26 from 7-12. Last year we did the same rummage sale and we raised nearly $2,300.

Who benefits

The Rummage sale benefits two amazing the causes. For our half of the profits my club will donate them to a few organizations that benefit the innocent civilians of Darfur. The first is Stand. S.T.A.N.D. (A Student Anti-Genocide Coalition) is our home organization they directly send money to the civilians of Darfur and promote advocacy about the current genocide occurring in Sudan.

The other organization is Doctors Without Borders. We specify on the donation forms where we would like our donations to go.

How to help

We were wondering if anyone would be willing to provide donations for our rummage sale. For example clothes, furniture, artwork, electronics, absolutely anything that you would be willing to donate to a good cause. And also if anyone would be willing to come to the event to purchase any items. We have tons of really cool donated items. Last year we had a lot of beautiful artwork, patio furniture movies, clothing etc.

On top of that we are having an instant raffle. Tickets will be around $0.50-$1 and you could win a variety of certificates. Anyway if anyone would be willing to donate any materials you could contact me by email and we could arrange a pick up or a drop off at our school.
