With unforgettable laughter…

…we said goodbye to the annual holiday. We’re grateful to have spent so many cheerful moments with the social-circus “Circlosión de Carcajadas” from Madrid – we all cried for joy and gleamed with
pleasure. This wonderful circus-team travels around the globe and dedicates their work to embellish the life of deprived children and conjure a smile on their faces. Never have I ever seen our children and madrinas burst out in such hearty laughter. I am sure this was an unforgettable experience for our children and they can always look back joyfully on this event. Additionally I was surprised, that our children didn’t miss the obligatory Piñata, which usually plays an important part in Nicaraguan parties. That is incredible and for this success the “Circlosión de Carcajadas” deserves a special
award. And I am sure that in the following weeks this event is everything the children will talk about.
But these were not all the surprises of that day. The children from Sabaneta came by foot to Tamarindo, when suddenly a woman stopped her car to ask the children who they were and where they were going. A few hours later she knocked on our door holding three bags filled with new shoes
for our children. We later learned that her name is Jessina and she is the owner of a shoe factory in Granada. She said: „ When I saw them walking down the street I thought that they are probably
children from deprived families that’s why I stopped my car”.
I am totally overwhelmed! A simple THANK YOU just seems insufficient, but right now it’s all I can give. On that note I send a gigantic hug and loads of kisses to the “Circlosión de Carcajadas” and Jessina. Thank you for that unforgettable day!
