Art, Frisbee, and Fundraising!

In mid-April, we hosted our biannual Festival de Arte with the theme of recycled art.  Forty children from our partner organizations gathered in a museum in Santiago to showcase their artwork and perform dancing and singing numbers.  The January 2013 volunteer class opened the show with a fun dance to the song Harlem Shake and got the kids excited to perform. The evening was an exciting event for the kids to share and be rewarded for their artistic creations.  Thank you to the Bechtel Chile Spouses Group for their donation of delicious baked goods, and our sponsor, American Tower, for their tremendous support!

This month’s Liga de Deportes was dominated by a game of ultimate frisbee.  Hunter Stephan, a September 2012 class volunteer, taught thirty children the fundamentals of the game.  With the weather staying so warm for the beginning of fall, the kids enjoyed another sunny afternoon outside!

The January 2013 volunteer class has begun their fundraising campaign!  Help them raise money for children at social risk in Santiago, Chile! PLEASE WATCH AND SHARE! They shook it, will you? http://www.firstgiving.com/fundraiser/shakeitforthekids/janclass2013

A mediados de abril, celebramos nuestro Festival de Arte bianual con el tema de arte reciclado. Cuarenta niños de nuestras organizaciones colaboradoras se reunieron en un museo en Santiago para mostrar sus obras de arte y presentar números de baile y canto. La clase de voluntarios de enero 2013 abrió el espectáculo con un baile divertido a la canción Harlem Shake y a los niños les hizo emocionados para también participar. Fue un evento muy emocionante para los niños porque pudieron compartir sus creaciones artísticas y ser reconocidos por ellas. ¡Gracias al grupo de mujeres de Bechtel Chile por su donación de productos de repostería deliciosos y a nuestro patrocinador, American Tower, por su gran apoyo!

Este mes, la Liga de Deportes fue dominada por un partido de ultimate frisbee. Hunter Stephan, un voluntario de la clase del septiembre 2012, les enseñó a treinta niños los básicos del juego. Con un clima tan cálido para el otoño chileno, ¡los niños disfrutaron de otra tarde soleada más al aire libre!

¡La clase de voluntarios del enero 2013 ha comenzado su campaña para recaudar fondos! ¡Ayúdales a recaudar fondos para los niños en situación de riesgo social en Santiago, Chile!  ¡Por favor, mira y comparte!  Ellos sí bailaron, ¿Y tú, qué harás?  http://www.firstgiving.com/fundraiser/shakeitforthekids/janclass2013
