Sometimes readers of this blog or of the SewHope website personally respond to a story. Something or someone touches a heart...and someone is compelled to do something. When children respond, it is extra special!
Mrs. Bonnie Walton follows the blog and sometimes includes the stories and powerpoints in her religion classes. Two of her fifth grade students at St. Pat's of Heatherdowns School in Toledo, OH, were touched by the stories about the children needing frames for glasses....and they did something! They collected old glasses.
Our last team was able to bring about 150 pairs of glasses in cases with their luggage on a recent trip. This week, Orfe and I presented these to the administrator at the Vincent Pescatore eye clinic in San Benito. She was VERY EXCITED and happy to receive this donation. The remaining glasses will come on future trips.
