Ambassador: Melanie MacNeil of Asheville Hoops
Drop: Deep Ripple Second Annual Kids Fair
Location: Negril, Jamaica, West Indies
From: Asheville, NC
Date: January 2009
The children immediately pulled the hoops out and began to roll, spin, toss, hook and dance with the hoops, playing in new ways I had never known or expected. Many of the children in wheelchairs simply “wore” them around their chairs. Others simply held onto them as the tangible experience of the colorful tube in hand was just as blissful as hooping them on the body.” Check out her photos of the Kid’s Fair here.
