I Remember

We have received some generous donations and are so glad that this project will soon be a reality. Thanks to these funds we will be able to bring joy to some children in the Dominican Republic. I remember growing up in this country. My parents could only afford ONE toy all year, on Christmas. The happiness I felt could not be expressed with words. I remember the anticipation, counting the days, and not being able to sleep the night before. I remember the smell of the brand new toy. I remember the look on my sisters' and friends' faces, showing off their new cabbage patch doll, or their new tea set. I remember the cheerful tone in my parents' voices, and their laughter, nothing made them happier. I remember the bright sun coming through my window, signaling "It's time, it's here". One toy. That's all it took. 

I was lucky to have parents that could afford the one toy. A lot of these children in this developing country are not so lucky. Please help us share the joy we received when we were little. Help us share the blessings we have received. Thank you,

The Mencia Foundation
