I’m not sure who had more fun – those of us who handed out some of the donations we received from the generous clients of Tailhunter International Sportfishing or the children, who are a total delight to photograph. Most of them anyway. It’s not always easy to get them to smile at the same time.
These kids always love receiving something just for themselves. It’s as if Christmas had arrived early. In those bags they might find toothbrushes, toothpaste, school supplies, binders, ball caps, backpacks, crayons, coloured pencils, markers, and English-Spanish dictionaries.
As we were organizing the huge amount of donated items, a young man, with few financial resources, asked if our charity could help with notebooks for high school. He couldn’t have timed it better. We were able to give him ten and a solar lamp to study by, since his family doesn’t have electricity. It’s these moments that make the giving so worthwhile!
