Again we are asking for your support for our 9th Canadian Volunteers for International Development Society Live ans Silent Auction to be held on March 15th, 2014 at the Santa Maria Gorretti Centre. Last year we were able to raise again over $100,000 to support needy projects.
"Bollocks!" an irritated Brit might say. Sandra Bullock should have won the 2013 Best Actress Award for her outstanding work in Gravity.
