Hey everyone. Roberto and I are happy to have had an amazing summer in which we lived and worked down in Hatteras, NC. Everything was great until Hurricane Irene destroyed many homes and the road leading to this wonderful Island. Our jobs were shut down and we had the blessed opportunity to move up the beach to Nags Head, NC and find work. Roberto and I are excited to get our things ready to return to our home, Nicaragua. On November 8th we will return and our steadily preparing for the NICA KIDS CHRISTMAS 2011. Last year we sponsored with help from many people over 400 kids. This year we will do the same but have a different approach. Last year we noticed that the kids were all focused on the receiving of the gifts and not on the Christmas play and reason for the season, Jesus Christ. We also heard the mothers complain that their kid got a cheaper gift than the kid over there etc etc...we were saddened by this spirit. So this year we have a plan! We are going to be raising $350 to feed up to 400 people and have a community dinner where the women will help prepare the food. I would also like to buy a projector (movie projector) to play a Christmas movie about the birth of Christ for the children. We will also be hosting weekly movie nights for the youth my husband Roberto works with. So if anyone has any clean and inspirational based movies in spanish or with translation they would like to donate...we would appreciate this. We also will be handing out little hand made pillows by our good friend and Angel Maja Ortiz, for info on this check out her amazing work at www.soundandmatter.wordpress.com . I also for fun would like to buy small bags of "dulces" which means "candies" in Spanish to hand out to the kids. Please if you would like to help in any way contact me firstname.lastname@example.org and if God tugs on your heart to donate. Look for the link on the right side of this page. God bless, Dios te Bendiga!
Dawn and Roberto...oh..and Gringo(our dog..lol)
