Fundraising Auction A Huge Success!
Special thanks to all who participated in our summer fundraising auction, A Bid for the Future, a benefit for the Center for Traditional Textiles of Cusco (CTTC). By the time the auction closed on September 2nd, ATA supporters had purchased sixty-three beautiful handmade Andean textiles, contributed to 270 prepaid phone cards to connect students with remote school access, and with your additional donations helped us raise a total of $26,362. That’s more than 131% of our original $20,000 fundraising goal!
“Your help is so important to us in this epidemic when the weavers are affected by low textile sales and worries for their families, animals, and crops,” explains Nilda Callañaupa, CTTC director. “Your contributions help us to keep our communities weaving through these troubles, and your friendship gives us hope and energy to keep going.”READ MORE
