New Superkids volunteer

I would like to introduce you to our newest volunteer!  Her name is Amy and this year for her birthday she asked for a special gift.  Instead of presents, she wanted her friends to each donate a toy for Children in orphanages in China.  They contacted me and we narrowed down the focus to toys for young children from the JiangXi province.  Yesterday I got to meet Amy.   She has a special spirit, a heart for doing something for children she does not even know.  When Amy and I met, we discussed what the orphanages were like in the JiangXi province.  We looked at pictures of some of the children from JiangXi.  She asked questions and really got the idea that what she was doing would mean so much to the young children who wait.   Gongzhan of course was there and helped convey our great appreciation to Amy. Amy got to put her Chinese lessons to use speaking with Gongzhan. It was a great event.

Amy has a special spirit, a heart for doing something for children she does not even know.

You know what was most important about this project.  We are seeing and building a heart for waiting children. Amy's mom, Lynne, and her friend Lisa asked me to speak with Amy's Kids club a year ago. They were part of the CCCWA quilt project. We had a great time talking about waiting children and then they tried out all my sensory toys.  Amy has a special heart.  Meeting with her, and her friends, only supports and begins to nurture the spirit of giving back.  I am so happy to be passing this spirit and love for waiting children on to a new generation.

Thank you to Amy for her special heart and wanting to improve the quality of life for these waiting children. Amy-you are awesome!
