Thoughts from France

Good Morning Friends! Lyndall and I are on our way home from South Africa. We had an unbelievable experience. We completed 54 hours of direct therapy in three different locations, 10 hours of group therapy, many hours of community building, and beautiful hours of skill building and giving much needed love to the children. Lyndall and I are exhausted but our hearts are full. We are sitting in the airport in France and are already busy planning our next step. We know that to continue our work, we need continual help from all who are interested in supporting our project. The bottom line is that we need to raise funds. 

We brought back "Love Gifts" from a South African artist. We are planning a wine event in which those items will be available. They are beautiful, whimsical, and quirky. The artist is a delightful woman who truly makes every piece with incredible love. You will see what I mean when you see the pieces. I love each piece. 

We are also auctioning off a variety of South African wines. Many of you have asked how you can help. Here are a few things that would help....
1) donation of South African wines for the auction.
2) if anyone knows of a venue that can be donated for our auction and information night, we would love to have you contact us.
3) donation of cheeses, crackers, and grapes
4) stay tuned for our information night and wine event...and plan to attend!! 

This is a beautiful project. There were many challenges, but so many more successes. I wish everyone of you could have experienced the past six weeks with us. We see how beneficial this therapy is and have identified ways to improve it. We are anxious to move forward. Thank you all for the many comments of support. We could feel the love, and believe me that it was crucial. 

Our continued and heartfelt thanks for all of your support.
