New Year´s Fiesta
We had a new year´s party with Julio from Fe y Alegria on January 4. Everyone brought food and we played games. It was nice. It was also a good opportunity for us to give candy to the kids. We got an awesome care package from my previous employer, Draffin & Tucker, and it had some big bags of candy. And just about everything else you can think of. It was a very big box and all of the other volunteers were jealous. We have been eating the candy and sharing it with the kids along the way but we were waiting for an opportunity to make bags and give them to the kids. Thanks to another gift from Nancy, John, and Rocky we had 25 gift bags to fill with candy. Thanks to my Mom and Dad, the bags made it down to Panama after we accidentally left them in the States. So, thanks to everyone who played a part in making this possible. Every child took a number and we drew the numbers out of a hat to see who won... We gave out 25 numbers so, as you can see, everybody won.
