About the project: As the founder of Traveling Love Suitcases and partnering with St. Vincent Children’s Outreach Mission, we travel to St. Vincent & The Grenadines in the summer for mission work. (July-2 weeks 2013)
We ship items raised through the winter for spreading the love at Christmas and the new year. We visit 7 different institutions on the island of St. Vincent, and also visit surrounding islands like Bequia, government schools: Sandy Bay Government School, Lodge Village Government School, Mesp Pre-school, Green Level Pre-school, and Liberty Lodge for Boys (Home), and Milton Cato Memorial Hospital.
We have been traveling over, since 2010 and have made 5 trips thus far.
We are back from our mission trip in St. Vincent & the Grenadines. The children were thrilled and enjoyed each day at Vacation Bible School during activity time, to play with the hula-hoops. By the photo’s you will see many, many smiles. Rain or shine they wanted to hula-hoop and we used the hoops in many ways. As the week went by, attendance grew. We had 100 children at the end of the week.Vacation Bible School was held at Lodge Village Government School, where we left the hoops, for the students to enjoy during gym time, when school starts back up this Fall. Thank you so much for your 14 hoops that were donated. They were Greatly appreciated. God Bless!
PS if you come across more to donate-we would love to send over in our “Spreading Christmas Cheer” shipment this Dec.
