|'OMG, I can't believe I get to experience another FEAST!'|
Thursday, December 22, 2011
I called the orphanage very late last night to give them the news. And then I found Vanya (the boy I wrote about a few days ago) on vkontakte (Russian Facebook) and I told him and asked him to spread the word!
Today I will write a long email to the Assistant Director spelling out what exactly they should do with this money. I'll make sure to be clear that ALL of it is to be spent on the 'Feast' day. if they have some left over after buying all the food, then they can spend some on decorations or extra candy and treats, I just want to make sure there is an abundance of food first, and that every single child there feels FULL at the end of the day!
I'm also strongly urging them to take photos so they can email them to me eventually and I can then pass them on to you! Russian Christmas is January 7th, so we've got to wait a bit. but I'm sending the funds tomorrow so they can start purchasing what they need now. After all, this is a Feast for over a hundred people!
By the way, my daughter spoke to the new Director and said she sounded very nice. (I was too embarrassed to talk to her, because I've never met her and I've been told I make lots of mistakes with my verb tenses when talking in Russian. I didn't want her to think I was an idiot..lol! Need to impress her since I'll be adopting from there very soon!)
I will be sure to send out thank you emails to all of you (if you haven't received one already) once I am in Florida. For now I've got packing and cleaning to do, so I better get to work!
