CBLA: Good-bye Purple - Hello Brown

CBLA Family - Past and Present:

Please help us get an awesome SURPRISE gift for our soon to be CBLA Formandos, Pavao and Chegado. Getting to the Brown Cord level in our group takes many years of training, dedication and hard work and we can't think of anyone more deserving than Pavao and Chegado. We'd love to get them a group gift to show our appreciation for all that they do inside and outside the classroom.

If each student donates at least $5 - $10** we can get them something they both really need...time away from us!

Seriously, though...we'd love to send them on a weekend getaway so they can relax and let the joy (and challenges) of being new Formandos set in. If we raise enough money in time, we'll surprise them with this gift during the batizado afterparty, so please give whatever you can by September 22, 2017.

The goal is to be able to get them a weekend away in the Mexico Wine Region in Baja California. Depending on how much money we raise, we can at least get them a stay at a nice Bed and Breakfast, and if we raise enough we will throw in extras like spa treatments, wine tours, meals, etc. 

Please remember this is a SURPRISE! Please do not share this publicly on Facebook, Twitter, etc. (though feel free to share the link in a Private Message or Email). 

[And don't forget, we'd love everyone to upload old photos or short videos in honor of our 4 new Formandos: Chegado, Pavao, Joy (CBNY) and Tuzinho (CBCT).
Deadline for photo/video submission is September 17, 2017.
You can upload photos/videos here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B7-L6T6l6dJ5Wm1xM1NYa1V4OTA]

Thank you!!

Amazonas, Ouro, Jujuba & Selvagem

**Please note that Go Fund Me takes about 8% out of every donation, so if you'd like to factor that in and give a little more to offset that cost, we wouldn't be mad. :-)
