Since Christmas we have offered Ecuador roses…first for that holiday… then the New Year and then Valentine’s Day. We do this as a service… charge $19 more than the roses cost and donate this difference to our foundation that helps Ecuador’s poor. Plus Merri and I chip per order to top off the deal.
In all you have purchased over 12,000 roses since Christmas which raised $4,800 to help the poor so today… the day we celebrate love, I would like to share how your care in ordering Ecuador roses has helped the poor.
We selected the village of Topo as recipient of the donations. We asked what do you need. “Never enough fruit”, one person said. “The school is in trouble,” stated someone else. And “the old ones are cold and sad” said another.
So we collected a team of friends and headed up to inspect.. to see what we could do.
First, we bought out the local fruit store. They have deliveries direct from the coast. Here are Franklin and Alberto loading up.
We packed the truck and were glad we did. The people acted like we brought gold instead of bananas, apples, melons, plums, oranges.
Upon arriving we first inspected the school.
They need two things first. More water containers and pipes.
The school does not have water and no pipes to take it to the lavatories.
They have to keep water in 50 gallon drums to flush the toilets.
Plus they have two entire rooms available for a kitchen and dining hall… but no water there. So they use this equipment instead and feed the children outside.
You have donated enough to fix this all this! The residents there said if we’ll provide the supplies… they will work together each Saturday to make this happen.
We are waiting for their list of supplies needed. First pipes… more water catchment tanks and concrete blocks to enhance the walls around the school.
So this will help stop… long lines outside…
a bowl of rice…
Your donations through the purchase of Ecuador roses makes it possible for a better kitchen… a dining hall… and more fruit.
Plus the old ones…who were cold, were there as well.
We brought alpaca ponchos for all of them. This small village has 28 very old women and 4 very very old men. The reaction from these wonderful, sweet and simple people was one that brings tears again to my eyes. All of us guys were trying to act like we were not crying… but we were.
I’ll try to share as best I can with my tiny Sony camera how these people feel about what you did for them, as they donned their warm ponchos.
really describe it…
my photography is inadequate…
but I promise…
the flowers in your home yesterday today brought more joy than you can imagine.
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
Merri and I hope you are blessed with as much love on this day of love as we felt that day. And just think this money just keeps on improving, helping and giving.
