This project has been months in the making, and I am grateful that with the help of very generous friends and family, we have been able to put together a lot of toys to send back to Cape Verde. I am sure the smiles on these children’s faces would light the heart of any parent, and we are hoping all of you who contributed to this great occasion of love and giving can find satisfaction in joy you give to these children. I remember when I was a child and never had any of the things I would love to have, but it seems God has a way of using our lives to tell a story so that it helps all of us become better people, not just within ourselves but when we relate to others.
There is something to be said about giving, that helps us become in tune with the needs of others. It is so important to give because the universe pours into you when your heart constantly gives. You become an outlet for the greatest source of hope and life. Giving should be everyone’s vocation if you have the power to give, and even with the little we sometimes have, we should learn to share. I know this Christmas many children would be thanking you in their hearts for your generous donations and we can’t wait to repeat this giving in the coming future. Again, I can’t tell you how much I am grateful for all you have done to make A Toy for a Smile a success in Cape Verde. Let’s take this love everywhere we go.
Thank You.Tags: Cape Verde, empowering, inspiring, toys
