Ambassador: Dee of Rotation Nation From: Madison, WI To: Jamaica Dates: 2014 Donation: 25 hoops
About the project: I plan to visit Jamaica early September 2014. I want to visit Portland and Trelawny and give hoops to the local children. I depart ChicagoAugust 30 and fly into Montego Bay. I have a friend who lives in Kingston who will take me to his son’s, Timmy, primary school to hand out some hoops. And then we will drive to the other two cities and find parks near the school to play some music and hoop with the kids. I’ve only been hooping since February 2013 but I expose people to hooping where ever I go. In college last year I brought them to orientation day and now I teach bi-monthly hoop fitness classes. At the hotel where I work I bring them when there is a birthday party in the conference room and it keeps them entertained for hours. And I always put on a little show and give the birthday child a free hoop. For May Day I made hoops for some friends and anonymously left them on their doorstep. Of course they knew the hoop was from me. But it feels so good to make people so happy with a simple circle. I only make simple 3/4inch (adult) and 1/2 inch (kids) hoops. I can’t wait to share my hoops in Jamaica and become an ambassador for World Hoop Day.
