It was a beautiful day for a very worthy cause…Supporting Deaf Children Living in Jamaica. Our Rummage Sale Fundraising kicks off this year’s lists of events. It was very exciting to see all the folks who came out to support the cause. We are thankful for the support of family, friends, and the community, because Lolly, Richard, and Roshane will be able to attend school…for another year. The funds raised will be used to help pay their school fees for the coming term.
Although we weren’t able to make our goal, we will continue to work hard to do our part to educate the deaf youths in Jamaica. With that in mind, we are packing bags of donated items to take down to the Caribbean Christian Centre for the Deaf, to give to the boys and girls. Our hope is to also volunteer at the school, which we are looking forward to enthusiastically. I do want to mention that all items…kids clothes, books, toys, etc…were donated by generous folks through our face book page; Donate Used Kids Books and Clothes.
We are anticipating our 2nd Annual Summer Program, which will further develop the boys’ social skills and expose them to a ‘normal’ way of life. Our summer program is designed to keep them occupied during time off from school, which has great rewards. See my post about our first summer program, No Limitations Summer Jam 2011.
I will, as always, keep you posted on all events.
Thank you all.
