This far exceeds our expectations Featured

"This far exceeds our expectations and I'm personally touched that we, as a community, have done something for our people back home." The words of Dr. Ismail Yumkella, Chairman of the Ebola Campaign Committee in Winnipeg, Canada, at last night's meeting. "The next step is a meeting with CHARITAS sometime next week ", he added.

Dr. Yumkella was reacting to the final report of Mr. Eriqueson Tayo-Jones who deputized him as Chairman during the recent Ebola fundraising dinner at Canad Inns, Windsor Park in Winnipeg, Canada.

Get your calculators for the breakdown: Dinner, $9,833.05; Donations from individual community members, $3,912.03; Sierra Ambassadors of Manitoba (Golden Conclave), $1000; and Winnipeg Central Mosque,$1100. Total $15,845.08. Deduct $1,958.00 from that as the total expenditure (with all receipts displayed), we have a cool $13,887.08!

Don't forget that this fundraising has nothing to do with the sale of T-shirts that's still in progress. The money from the T-shirts will go to the Canadian Red Cross and Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors without Borders) to fight Ebola regionally (Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone). The rest of the proceeds from our fundraising effort will go directly to Sierra Leone through the tested and trusted CHARITAS.

It isn’t over yet, folks: The way to cover our expenditure is where you and I will part company. On so-called popular request, it has been decided that the coupon that Canad Inns donated to SALNAM (worth $150) for one night stay at the hotel, will be raffled openly to the entire community. Yes, the raffle will no longer be limited to committee members only and I'm not laughing. Interestingly, they're going to auction five tickets for $10. Unbelievable ... totally ... You know what? I'm more Canad Inns material than ... Look, I'm winning that coupon hands down, period!
