Sunday fun in Siem Reap – Wanderlust’s Siem Reap Suitcase Sale

We at HOPE are always up for a bit of fun and when Wanderlust’s Elizabeth Kiester said she wanted to liven up this town and have some fun we couldn’t but help join in! So on Saturday afternoon I popped over to Sangkheum Center for Children to collect some handmade woven baskets, wristbands, silk lab products and volunteer t-shirts exclaiming ‘I bring hope to young generation’ (they missed the ‘A’ out! Quite ironic that the assistant English language teachers wear them!!), and packed my old suitcase full of goodies to sell on behalf of Sangkheum Center for Children.

The afternoon didn’t bring in too many sales but everyone had fun and raised HOPE’s awareness in town! The highlight of the weekend was arriving at Sangkheum on Saturday afternoon just as the kids were handing out Valentine cards. Claire, the activity coordinator volunteer had spent the week helping kids create cards with paper cuttings and glitter – real Blue Peter style! To top it off she had made a beautiful post box for children to discreetly post cards to their secret Valentines! Even I received one!! But I don’t know who it was from??
