Dear Friend of Kazuri
You are receiving this final Annual Report for Kazuri Jewellery: The Grandmother Connection (KJGC) as a supporter of KJGC. Because of generous grandmothers and grand-others like yourself, KJGC was able to donate almost $800, 000 to the Stephen Lewis Foundation over the nine-year lifetime of our not-for-profit business. It has been a great ride. We three managing partners, along with our Direction of Operations, Lori Blinn, have thoroughly enjoyed working with all of you to raise these funds for our sister grandmothers in Africa and their orphaned grandchildren. So many memories, so many new friendships forged over sorting and selling the beautiful Kazuri jewellery.
Please feel free to share this short report with other group members if you belong to a grandmother group. A large number of you were also friends who volunteered to host a sale for us. Thank you one and all.
We wish you a wonderful summer and hope that you, too, have fond memories of our work together.
Mary Jane Sterne, Peggy Edwards, Gay Coates
