Thank You Helen!


On Saturday morning my daughter arrived from South Africa, her and her husband have set up and run a charity called http://www.projecto.org.za/ working with children orphaned through AIDS in the Zulu community of Kwa Zulu Natal. Also arriving on Saturday, all the way from Australia,  was my prize from Helen at Aunty Henny's  

This is beautiful and I am amazed at the handiwork...thank you Helen!
When I opened it and showed it to my daughter she said "Zandile would love that!" Zandile is one of their staff members in South Africa, she has worked with them for a few years and at the moment she is the only Zulu staff member so they rely on her for translating as well as visiting the children with them. So as I know that Martin & Vashti have a low income I said she could take my prize back and give it to Zandile for Christmas. As much as I love my prize and would like to keep it I know that Zandile will treasure it.(I am keeping the calendar as a reminder!)
So Helen be assured that your gift will be treasured twice and is going to a very worthy home. Thank you again!

So glad your daughter arrived OK. Helen's bag will be one of the most world-travelled, it will need it's own passport!

I am sure that Helen will be thrilled to know how much her gift will be appreciated.

Enjoy your visit.

Even with beautiful gifts you receive, you are generous. Helen's gift is so special and what you did with it is even more special. Love the smiles of the two on the last picture.
