Valentine’s Day is about more than roses, chocolate and candy. It is a time to tell those we love just how much we appreciate them. An opportunity to do something special to show how much we care.
This year for Valentine’s Day, we asked you to help do something special for the staff who work so hard in the Nuevo Paraiso village in Honduras. We wanted to send down a little something special for the hard working staff who have dedicated their lives to caring for the children. The Tias (house mothers) have children of their own, yet care for the children in the village as though they were their own. They ensure that all the needs of the children are met. The guards, cooks and laundry staff are also very kind to the children and very involved in their lives. With the support of these dedicated staff, the children have a brighter future. They have safety, shelter, food and clothing. They receive an education, medical and dental care, and life skills. Most importantly, they are loved.
Thanks to your generous support, we surpassed our goal of $1000 and raised over $1400 for the staff at Nuevo Paraiso! We were able to send down a nice surprise Valentine’s Day gift and share our love and support.
We want to say “thank you” to all those who helped to make this possible. The staff from Nuevo Paraiso were thrilled to receive a surprise gift from their friends in Canada!
