Hello my flower friends!
Flora Symbolica is super excited to announce that we will be partnering with an incredible organization, Ratanak International to raise awareness and funds to end sex trafficking in Cambodia. This is a cause that I've been really passionate about since high school, and I'm so proud of all the incredible work that Ratanak has been doing to bring hope to Cambodia.
When: Saturday, June 13th, 2015 (8 am check-in and 9 am walk begins)
Where: Erindale Park in Mississauga
Registration: $20 for adults, $12 for students and $5 for children
All proceeds will go towards ending sexual exploitation in Cambodia!
Here are some details from the organizers themselves:
"5KM Walkathon is a family-friendly fundraising event which supports the important work of Ratanak International in Cambodia whose lush landscape and friendly faces make it hard to imagine that only 35 years ago, the country was torn apart by genocide.
5KM Walkathon is organized by a group of passionate Ratanak Toronto volunteers who believe that - though they may be weak and insignificant individually, together with God's leading - they are crazy enough to believe that they can all BRING HOPE and freedom to the vulnerable. We are dedicated to walking alongside Ratanak International, breaking the cycle of poverty exploitation and abuse in Cambodia."
You can learn more about Ratanak International's work at www.ratanak.org and check out this trailer for a documentary they just produced to get a snapshot of some of the work they do.
I'll be donating a voucher for a beautiful custom floral arrangement, which will be one of the prizes that will be given out at this event. So come out and walk to help shine a light in Cambodia!
