We're leaving for Peru at midnight! Thank you, Dr. Brandon Robison, for toothbrushes, and thank you, Tavana, for more. Thank you, Nisay, for staying with Jeb. Thank you, Janet, for driving us. Thank you Kauri Sue Hamilton School for braces. Thank you, Affordable Laptops and Bad Apple. Thank you to everyone who donated, everyone who encourages us, everyone who prays for us. We're very grateful. I've made a bunch of communication boards for kids who can't talk, because everyone has something to say. We're packed and almost ready to go. Muchas gracias a todos!
Thank you, Kauri Sue Hamilton School, Riverton, Utah.
Thank you, Affordable Laptops, Riverton, Utah.
Thank you Bad Apple Computers, South Jordan, Utah.
Thank you and muchas gracias.
We’re going to Peru in two weeks. We’ll volunteer at two schools for children with severe disabilities and two infant-toddler early intervention programs.
We don’t do this alone.
Thanks to the children (with help from their parents) at Kauri Sue Hamilton School for children with disabilities in Jordan School District, we’re able to provide leg braces to children in Peru who can’t walk. These are braces the Kauri Sue students have outgrown. They’ve donated braces for several years now and are changing children’s lives in Peru.
Thank you to Affordable Laptops in Riverton. They’ve given us two rebuilt computers (they offered us ten last year but we can only take one each) and we’re taking one to each school. They’ve also helped us for several years now. These make a major difference to the teachers there.
And thank you to our newest community Amigo, Bad Apple in Riverton, for donating two ipads. We’re setting these up as augmentative communication devices for children who can’t talk. This is the first time we’ve been able to do this and we’re excited.
If any of our friends in the Salt Lake Valley would consider helping us collect school supplies for teachers of children with disabilities there, we would greatly appreciate it.
We’re working with two schools now, one in the jungle and one in the Andes mountains, as well as early intervention programs for infants and toddlers in both locations. Each time we go, we prepare bags of supplies for all the teachers.
Some things we could use include crayons, markers, paint sets, paintbrushes, glue, scotch tape, children’s scissors, adult scissors, small educational toys, and small stuffed animals. We can’t take paper because it’s too heavy. If you’d like to help, please contact me for more information. Muchas gracias, Amigos
