Parol Lantern and Philippines Fund Raiser

I was invited by the Embassy of the Republic of the Philippines to show my Parol Lantern Kits at their fundraiser entitled: Parol – A Star of Hope. A fund raiser for Typhoon Haiyan. Order Parol Kits!

I donated 100 percent of the proceeds from the sale of the lantern kits. I hope everyone makes them and hangs them in their window to share them to show solidarity to the Philippines.

The fund raiser  was a great success raising $10,412.

It was a lot of fun since a lot of my friends were there and I met many new friends. Also lots of entertainment, food and a collection of vendors.

Thanks to Ottawa mayor Jim Watson, the embassy and others for this event.

Here’s a post on how I designed the Parol and a link on how to add lighting to your Parol.

Here’s a youtube video of news coverage by Vanessa Merjudio.

Here are a few pictures:
