What Thrills You

What thrills you? Does viewing a gorgeous pink, orange, and wispy cloud sunset on a warm evening from the beach? Or maybe jumping out of a plane with only a parachute at hand to glide you down to safety? Or reading a good book curled up under a blanket by the fire with snow gently falling out your window?  For LRFF, and I’m sure any non-profit organization, it’s getting a project funded all at once by one generous donor! 

To conclude their awesome Costa Rican vacation, long time LRFF supporters Tom and Tammy Scala surprised Roberta and Dan by offering to fully fund a project. After considering a few, they all agreed on a significant part of this project, “Restoring Forests in Guatuso” and will get 500 trees planted on Angelo Cruz’s property next February! $1,225 later, Roberta was jumping with joy, intern Courtney was shaking her head in amazement, and Dan had a huge smile on his face.

The greatest THANK YOU in the universe to the Scalas for your enormous generosity and genuine friendship! Tom might even be able to return to Costa Rica in early 2014 to assist in planting the baby trees. Any and all donation amounts are significant; each time Roberta sees a donation come in that contributes to funding a project, she smiles with happiness and appreciation, but when one donation completely funds a project that built up happiness gets to be released in a dance of joy. Very cool to see and experience. Can’t wait for more pebbles and boulders of generosity to come! WE LOVE OUR DONORS! LET’S GET PLANTING!!
