i had a great wkd! hope all of you did too!!!
on sunday, 'day of the child' was so fun!
i mentored two sisters, sylvia was 10 and ada was 6,
they were adorable and so fun!!!
also very smart- they are like tri-lingual,
spanish, english & sign!! yes, the 6yo too!
i enjoyed getting to know them and talk,
i was bummed when our day was over....
i am def doin this again next year!
we all really had the most wonderful time!! the entertainment was good, i had a vip pass which gave me all access so i was able to take the girls backstage to meet some of the artists after they performed, and into the vip seating area too. but mostly we played games to win tickets, then the girls used their tickets won at the 'store' and got fun stuff! we also went on rides!! and really just did whatever they wanted to do!! we ate alot of yummy food :-)
when the girls got on their bus to go home, they had terrific gift bags waiting for them, more stuff! they were so excited!! it was so fun to see all the kids enjoying their day, and i felt so good inside, knowing i was part of this amazing day, for me to be able to give my time & share in their day, and experience these girls was so awesome. it really opened my eyes up. i'm so glad i got to mentor! thanks to daphna who heads up children uniting nations- she's so sweet, so incredible!! and william who works with her!! i met so many ppl who work with her, i can't remember all their names, but they were all so nice, and everyone is dedicated to helping children everywhere!! i met sharon davis, she has been instrumental also in this event & thanks also to jd who put on the whole shabang, he did a great job, and just all the volunteers & mentors, and everyone involved!! and especially thanks to the kids ♥the girls & i at day of the childwe're in a dance contestus with jd, after the event is over...
hope everyone's week is going well!!
