Toys for Children

During April, our last month in Brazil I did not blog of Cascalheira. There was an unexpected and very sad death in my family.

Now that we are back in the USA and have recovered I am ready to post some pictures.

These photos are children of Cascalheira, each choosing a toy that was donated by The Dolphin Bookstore, located in Port Washington, NY. It was so generous of the bookstore to contribute and make moments of happiness for these children. We shipped a large box filled with the toys and other donations at the end of December 2009. It took about 3 months for the box to arrive. We thank you Dolphin Bookstore and we thank all of you who have been so supportive donating money. It helped to pay for the shipping. Enjoy the photos.
