Kindness is a language that the deaf can hear and the blind can see. Mark Twain
RE/MAX’s Dream Team decided to direct their Christmas time and efforts this year towards the children of Sandy Bay Lighthouse Ministries orphanage. With the blessing of Broker Larry Schlesser, the Dream Team visited the orphanage and met the amazing people who run their home with love and hope. They have ‘mom’, ‘dad’ and several ‘aunties’ who help run the household and raise the children.
Currently they have beds for 24 children but have cared for up to 29. They are currently building rooms for another 24, so by next year we could be looking at 48 children. With the love, support, guidance and education these children are receiving; they have a wonderful future ahead of them. There is a school built and they will continue to expand the facility as time and donations allow. They also have a garden where they children can learn to grow their own food. This house is run with love, support, daily routines, nightly prayers, and the generous donations from kind hearted people.
After the Dream Team visited the site and met the children, they set out to create a Christmas party for these amazing children. Having foresight and knowledge, Broker Larry put a small mention in RE/MAX ‘s monthly, December 1st newsletter. Announcing the upcoming festivities for the children and asking if anyone wants to make a donation to please contact the Dream Team. Well, generous souls came out and made what would have been a small pool party, into the most amazing day for all the children.
Giving isn’t about just making a donation. It’s about making a difference.
RE/MAX’s Dream Team would like to thank all the generous people who helped make the day for the children of Sandy Bay Lighthouse Ministries orphanage. These generous people helped create the most amazing, memorable day for these beautiful children who touched our hearts so. We were able to take the children on Jolly Rogers Catamaran cruise with lunch and drinks. Then they ended the day with a pool party with Santa Clause, presents, pizza, cupcakes, chocolate bars, sodas and went home with piñatas. Bless the hearts of Jolly Roger, Captain Van, Didi, Wynona/Java Vine, Susie EBanks, Sally, Lavina, Kerry/Nice and Spicy, Banarama, Rafa/Splash Inn, Tom and Linda, Sully/Santa Clause, The Chocolate Factory, Melaina Matute, Larry Schlesser, Sophia, Kathy, Colette Grbac, Tommy Moore, Sophia Fedio, Maria Moreno and our helpers Aylin and Marlen Collins. Thank you everyone for your generosity!!!
Speak to children as if they are the wisest, kindest most beautiful and magical humans on earth, for what they believe is what they will become.
Please help the Dream Team make donations for Easter and Christmas 2019. We will be creating an Easter Event for the children, a drive for school supplies as well as the second annual Christmas Event. We will be visiting an additional orphanage to add a second facility. Any and all donations will be giving 100% to the orphanage and directly to the children.
Alone we do so little; together we can do so much. Helen Keller
