I would like to say thank you to everyone who has contributed in some way to Creations for Charity, the support of all of you is very important. Thank you so much!
This year my personal goal was to serve an institution with more than 100 children, and this was possible because of the support of the entire community around the world. I chose the May 23 Project, which was created in 2009 to help children including youths and adolescents in the neighborhood on Red Earth. The initial idea of the project was to provide food and shelter for the needy children in the nearby neighborhoods. Over the years, activities have been incorporated to take the children out of the streets to prevent them from entering the world of crime and drugs. Today, the project has Portuguese, English, dance, martial arts, painting and soccer classes. The project is all maintained by volunteers.
As usual I involved several other friends who, besides helping me in this project, also donated clothes and food to those children who so badly need our support. It was a wonderful party and of course we all sat on the floor with the children and went to do what we know best, play with this wonderful toy called Lego that gives us moments like this of so much joy.
