Because sometimes, you’ve got to let your kids dream a little — or a lot.
And you were a HUGE part of this. We are so grateful…
Lydia and Anna have something to tell you about Lydia’s big dream to build a $5,000 playground in Haiti.
I’ll let them tell you…
(Apologies … They wanted to tell you themselves, by video, but it’s a bit hard to read some of the signs we made!! So sorry about that! You can watch the girls’ video, or scroll down to read the short version. 🙂 … Email subscribers will need to click here for the video.)
So the short story is this:
God did a really amazing thing. (He’s sort of famous for that.) And we want to thank you for the ways you made this possible!
— More than $6,000 was raised for the playground! And more than $10,000 of ViBella Jewelry was sold in this fundraising project!
— And, after much prayer, Scott and I purchased tickets for the four of us to visit Haiti for a week in January, when the playground will be installed. I already know this: It will be life-changing. Will you pray for us?
— When we go to Haiti, you go with us. You really do. We simply could not have done this without you. Over the last few weeks, we’ve watched your orders for ViBella Jewelry pour in. It brought us to tears again and again. Lives are impacted by what you’ve done. You’ve made a real difference for those women who make the jewelry, while also giving these children a gift beyond their wildest imagination! Most of them have never seen a slide or swing in their whole life!
— We love you. More than I can express in a little blog post. We all do. Just … thanks.
Love from the Lee Family …
Video transcript :
You don’t have to be a grown-up …
To make a difference.
To spread joy.
To change the world.
All you really have to do is …
Love your neighbor as yourself.
We found some of our neighbors in Haiti.
And you helped us do an amazing thing for our neighbors.
(Drum roll please)
We raised enough $$$ for a new playground in Haiti!
And Thank God!
Boys and Girls in Haiti will love their slides and swings.
This was our prayer.
And in January, when the playground goes up…
Our whole family will be there!
