So, remember how I said that we would be supplying those adorable brown eyed beauties with school supplies coming up this month? Well it is about to happen.
Here is the lowdown: I saved a chunk of donations to be able to supply the kids for a second time this year. I am going to be sending money down to Juan Carlos so that he can take care of bussiness. I have no doubts in my mind that he will take on the project with grace without my help (who needs that silly gringa anyways?) We should be able to supply each child in Jose de La Cruz Mena once again. Juan Carlos will be taking photos, so I will hopefully be able to post some updated photos from the project. I might get teary eyed, knowing I wasn't able to help this time! My project (my baby) is growing up and isn't needing me as much anymore.. hehe.
So, keep in mind that the new goal is to supply these children twice a year. If we make more money, we will create new projects, possibly help more schools.. So I highly encourage people to donate to us this upcoming year and before. I hope to be able to get back to Nicaragua for 2 weeks in February to supply the kids and possibly (hopefully) think up some new projects in the community.
Also, good news... I got into grad school at Royal Roads. I am taking a program called:MA in Professional Communication specializing in Intercultural and International communication. I know this is the right path for me because when I was asked by a career councelor what I generally wanted to do, I answered by saying... "working with people of different cultures". Im not 100% sure where this will take me, but I know that Royal Roads is a great school and I will be able to find out about all the possibilities out there. I believe that this project "Si Quieres..." is part of the reason I got in!
Also: because of Alicia of Studio Red Dot, who wrote me an amazing reference letter about our time shooting the documentary. She claims it will be done soon :) Im excited to see it and I will surely be blogging about it when it is all done and ready for viewers.
A little project that has gone along way....
DALE PUES (that is what they would say in GRANADA)
