A week in Johannesburg, not in the large and beautiful homes surrounded by blooming bougainvilla or the purple Jacaranda, but in the tin-roofed buildings that house the hope of the very poor. We hugged child after shy child. We held the littlest ones in our arms. We touched the lives of people affected by the worst the world has to offer. And yet, we laughed, we were moved to tears, we were humbled by the gratitude of these children who have so little but who are thankful for so much.
You are a vital part of what they are thankful for…and so we extend to you their arms, smiles, warm, shy eyes and grateful hearts…for it is what you do each and every week that makes them so ready to extend themselves to us.

Thank You!
