Bid to Win a Champions League Jersey from AS Roma Player Edin DŽEKO!

Big surprise of the event "I Pazzi di Danza" organized by Reach Out- La Casa di Andrea – the striker of football team Roma, EDIN DŽEKO, gave us as a gift his signed jersey – the one he was wearing while scoring the away goal that won Roma a place in this year’s Champions league quarter-finals for the first time since 2008.

 

We are immensely grateful to Edin to have given us this very Champions league jersey, the one with which such a decisive goal was scored on March 13th in the match against the Ukrainian team Shakhtar Donetsk.

 

The jersey is on sale at the online auction – https://www.charitystars.com/…/maglia-gol-dzeko-indossata-e…

 

All the proceeds will be donated to the Andrea Tudisco Association (http://www.assandreatudisco.org/), sustaining the Casa di Andrea. It has now been twenty years that the Casa di Andrea gives hospitality to children with very serious conditions, and to their families, helping them face their ill health in a warm and comfortable environment that in time becomes a real home for them, as it is equipped aiming to give them a thorough moral support.

We thank Edin Dzeko in the name of both St. Stephen’s school and of the Tudisco Association for his greatly thoughtful gesture, for collaborating towards the expansion of the association!

The auction is now open. Increase your bids!

SSS Students Organize a GoFundMe Campaign for a Refugee in the Congo

As a follow up to last week's presentation of "Refugees: Displacement and Survival" photo exhibit in the cultural center, courtesy of Jonathan Dumont, St Stephen's School parent and Head of Television Communications, United Nations World Food Program.  Mr Dumont has made event organizers and SSS Refugee Committee members aware that a child in one of his photographs is in need of immediate assistance.  So moved by this young girl's plight, Jon Dumont has written the following appeal. If you are interested in donating, information may be obtained by clicking on the link below. 

 

Dear Friends,
Being one of the selfish stone hearted damned people who spend too much time going from war zone to war zone, I don’t usually do this sort of thing so, pls forgive any awkwardness. Despite my job, I am not one to reach out to friends to solicit funds. My personal satisfaction from capturing and disseminating the images of the people WFP is trying to help comes from sharing the stories of people who would otherwise be forgotten. But, in September I met Mbuyi in a clinic in the Kasai region of DR Congo where thousands have been killed and over 1 million have fled their homes due to hunger, fear, hate, power, greed and all the other stupid reasons people find to kill each other.
Mbuyi is 15 and was shot in the leg when her village was attacked in March. She is alone. She has not seen her parents since the attacks. She will lose her leg and then her life if she doesn't get treatment soon in Kinshasa. It will cost $10,000. The amazing kids and faculty at St. Stephen's School Rome have set up this GoFundMe page:
https://www.gofundme.com/fund-for-mbuiy

If you can spare some hope for the holiday maybe you can share it with Mbuyi!
(Feel free to share this too)
Thanks!!!
Jon
