Donor Appreciation Party 2013

Every year in October we hold a special party to say thank you to people in our town and the surrounding areas for donating to the Home or supporting the Home in some way.  This year the children prepared dramas, songs, and games as their way of saying "Thank you!  You are important to us!"  

 

Each child chose an adult to hit the piñatas and then the kids in the audience scrambled to grab candy.

Katia and Gaby made everyone feel special and loved with their participation.  They dressed up in bee suits and then "buzzed" around the audience to the tune of "Beauty and the Bees", giving everyone a hug.

Carlos, the president of the Civil Association, gave words of thanks, as did William.  They pointed out how necessary people´s donations are and shared some victory stories of great things that have happened in the kid´s lives because they have a safe, loving Home in which to live.
