Fundraiser Ceremony: Children Cancer Hospital+Terreiro

Healing Ceremony & Fundraiser
August 26th at 7 PM

For this ceremony, all donation proceeds will go directly to two very important and beloved community resources in Brazil.

1) For this ceremony, you are welcome to bring a small bag of gently used clothes, jackets, toys, jewelry, shoes, purses, etc in addition to a monetary donation. When we return to Brazil in September for training, we will donate these materials to the Children’s Cancer Hospital in Curitiba, Brazil called Hospital Pequeno Príncipe. We visited this hospital many times and have no doubt all donated items will go to help kids and their families during a very hard time. Any extra items too big to fit in our suitcases will be donated to Title I schools in Commerce City.

2) In Brazil, therapy and mental health counseling are financially available only to a small margin of people. So where do people go when they need help and a place for their pain to be held? Most cannot afford therapy and instead go to a spiritual house of Umbanda, or a terreiro. The terreiro is a weekly home for everybody in Brazil regardless of income and performs healing services for no cost or donations. Our mother terreiro is the oldest in Curitiba, Brazil and has been in the same family for generations. It serves an important role in the neighborhood and the community. Recently the roof was ruined by a hailstorm and all proceeds will go to help the terreiro repair the roof.

Hosts: Brazilian medium Cyro Estevao and Nicole de Lima, initiates and practitioners of the African-Brazilian religion Umbanda

Ceremony: Receive energy healing, sacred song, spoken one-on-one help, and birthday cake afterwards for Nicole!
