A BIG Thank You!
Well yesterday was a another interesting day here in Poland, one of which I will not forget soon!
As you know I am a HUGE supporter for the orphanages here where I live. Well yesterday they hosted a little event for a few people who have volunteered their time either fundraising or working with the children.
The coordinator of one of the orphanages all she told me about the event was to dress nice, no jeans(she know I love to wear them!).
We had a GREAT time! The older kids treated us to a play about Bydgoszcz(resembled Little Mermaid a bit), then we heard a quick speech from the main orphanage director and from the city vice-president(they don’t have mayors here), then we were presented with letters of appreciation from the city President. AND of course there was food!
It was a great to be around others who are trying to make a difference in these kids lives not just with words but also with their actions.
My husband and I were talking last night about our English class we teach at the orphanage and we are not sure who is getting more of a blessing from those classes, the kids or us? It is a wonderful feeling something so small to us means so much to those kids!
Do you do volunteer work? What is your favorite thing to do? Mine, while living here in Poland is helping at orphanage!!
