Journalist Fundraises with Jars of Jam

Laura Tester travelled twice to Kenya with A Better World Canada, the most recently in November 2013, and during those times she witnessed firsthand the positive impacts being made to help children. After eight years of being in the country and with Christmas coming around the corner, Laura decided she wanted to help those children in Kenya. She made various jams — raspberry, strawberry, saskatoon berry, and blueberry — in support of ABW’s new clubfoot program. Each jar was priced at $10 and decorated in festive colours. Once she told family, friends and others about what she was doing, they were eager to snap up a jar. The writer for ABW and Calgary resident hopes her jam fundraiser will spark others to get creative. No matter how small your fundraising goal is, it will make a world of difference.
