The first SHOUT OUT goes to......INTERNATIONAL BOOK PROJECT of the USA for their generous donation of books to Matamaka GPS. We received thirty one books ranging from math and science textbooks to leveled reading materials for the children. The children were very excited to read the new books. A special MALO ‘AUPITO, THANK YOU VERY MUCH to the Virginia Clark Hagan Foundation of Lexington, Kentucky for sponsoring Matamaka GPS. They made the book donation possible! We are very grateful for their help.
Another SHOUT OUT to DETLEF PLASIER of Leipzig, GERMANY. He has been active participant of our Postcard Project by sending us tons of postcards. Detlef went above and beyond by sending a box full of school supplies. We received scissors, watercolors, pencils, a map of Leipzig, and more. His contributions have made successful projects with the children of Matamaka. As a result, Detlef receives a ROCKSTAR STATUS from all his new friends in Tonga.
Lastly, a personal SHOUT OUT to CANDI DECARLO for continuing to send me goodies from the States. She has been awesome with care packages, as well as boxes of supplies to the school. I cannot even count how many boxes she has sent to Tonga since I first arrived last October. For real, THANK YOU SO MUCH if you are reading this. It has been much appreciated.
