Here are Eyes to Burma’s 2015 events in Ashland, Oregon. Local Board members and volunteers in the Rogue Valley organize these events to support ETB’s humanitarian projects by raising funds, 100 percent of which go to help the community at the Mae Sot rubbish dump. We thank all of the local individuals and businesses who donated to these events. Your support is invaluable and greatly appreciated.
Because Eyes to Burma is a direct aid organization, every dollar donated goes a long way, and we are proud of our global network of supporters in 19 countries.
