Our Future Boxers (humans not dogs)
One of our charity’s scholarship students asked if we had boxing gloves. A strange request for a charity that’s not oriented towards sports. However, as luck would have it, we had gloves! A client of Tailhunter International Sportsfishing donated them a while ago and we held onto them until we could give them to a young person interested in boxing.
Last newsletter, we featured some boys playing with Trompos. Those spinning toys where you wind a piece of string around the body and launch it so it lands on its point on the ground or your hand and eventually the piece of string itself. These toys should really fall under the concept of impossibility! But because it was so popular, we decided to hold a competition. Twenty boys and girls participated!
This competition was so successful, we plan to do more!
At the same time, we made Mexican Bingo and painting activities available for the younger kids who weren’t involved with the Trompos. Every child received a small spinning top, the kind you flick with your fingers – the easy kind – donated by my Toronto family.
We had so many wonderful adult volunteers, too, including a junior high teacher who’s interested in volunteering and who, literally, just finished teaching her last class ready for Spring Break!! What a fun day for all!
We are officially on Easter Spring Break for two weeks!
God bless you.
