A morning at one of the local Polish orphanages was one of the highlights of living here in Bydgoszcz this year. I am currently the Chairperson for a Spouses Club and over the last year we have been doing different fundraisers throughout the year like a charity dinner and coffee mornings to raise money for different charities that we voted for in the beginning of the year. One charity was a local orphanage here in town.
Well to say “Thank You” to us they wanted to host one of our month coffee mornings. Being the last coffee morning of the year not only did we get treated to GREAT coffee and cookies, we also had a special surprise of the kids singing and doing a skit for us. But the BEST part of the whole morning was presenting the orphanage coordinator with their portion of the zlotys we raised over the past couple of months. I do not think I have been hugged that hard or had that many kisses in a VERY LONG time!
Here are a few pictures of the morning………
This past year it has been amazing to work with this orphanage and the Spouses Club. It is great knowing that the money we have raised help these children go on a field trip to Malbrook Castle, paid for art supplies, paid for cleaning supplies and now with this money they are going to purchasing new furniture for the kids.
What is your favorite childhood toy that you played with? Mine, I would say was my Raggedy Ann doll.
