H&H Christmas Celebration at Botshabelo Orphanage, Dec 2008

Posted by admin on December - 31 - 2008

Hand & Heart gathered up volunteers and resources to give the kids at Botshabelo Aids Orphanage a Christmas they will never forget. The thought that some kids have to sit and watch other kids get presents and have a great Christmas while their families or situations simply don’t allow for it, is heart wrenching and something Hand & Heart knew it could do something about, and so we did. We gave the kids and staff at Botshabelo Orphanage, who otherwise would not have been able to afford a Christmas Celebration, a day to remember. There were jumping castles, water worms, barbeque, lots of candy, presents, good music, dancing and lots and lots of smiles everywhere! This might not have been a substantial or sustainable philanthropic project, but to the kids at the orphanage, it was substantial and sustainable in a sense that they will have this memory forever. We had so much fun planning and throwing this event at the orphanage. We started with nothing and with a little bit of effort from all our team members, we were able to not only give the kids an awesome day but also give the orphanage a lot of items they really needed at that point. Overall, this was just a really fun event, and something that enriched everyone’s Christmas and brought lots of smiles.
