We are pleased to present our new-and-improved website, now with the most up-to-date information regarding the Zimbabwe Gecko Society. We encourage everyone to take a tour of the site as much of the information has changed, and is now in a modern, easy-to navigate design. We have included more information on the partnership with Dr Ray Markham under the page “Healthcare“, and we encourage you to keep an eye on this page as we will be providing periodic updates there as the project progresses.
Our Annual Garage sale is this Saturday, May 24th, from 8:00 am until 2:00 pm at the White Rock Baptist Church (1657 140th Street, Surrey BC). Be sure to join us for some great deals and goodies.

The fundraising dinner on October 19th was a huge success! Thanks to everyone who helped make it the most successful dinner we’ve had. Susan and a team of volunteers did an amazing job ensuring everyone had a delicious meal, with great presentations on what the society has been doing this past year and what they are planning for the future.
We will be providing more updates on the dinner along with photos in the coming weeks, so make sure you stay tuned!
Judah (age six) wanted to give all of the pennies that his family had to the ‘poor’ kids in Africa. He and his sister Abigail (age four-and-a-half) rolled all their pennies, by themselves, and they ended up with fourteen rolls, or seven dollars worth. They put them in a box to deliver them to Susan, and Judah made a note on the box that said, “Money for the Poor.” It’s wonderful to see young children have such compassion for others, and take the initiative to make a difference.
Host a Shipping Container Party!
Ask your friends and family to bring items to be donated to our new Container Project. Items we need most are medical supplies (such as Tylenol, Polysporin, Aspirin, etc), new or gently used clothing for children up to age 15, and a variety of non-electronic tools (including gardening tools).
Jane from Vernon recently hosted a Medical Party for her 60th birthday (for guests to donate medicine) and even invited her guests to wear their best (or silliest) hats to be judged in a Best Hat Contest!
Thanks Jane and Greg for your wonderful donations!
