To: The Committee and all members of BirdLife Overberg:
Our team is immensely grateful for the way the Bird Club members opened their hearts to our three charities the Lighthouse, Little Fishes and Duifies en Kuifies.
Our hearts were touched by the huge amount of funds, toiletries, cleaning products, art products and even four beautifully hand knitted baby jackets that we received.
The Lighthouse was extremely grateful for the funds, as they need to build up a "kitty" to buy groceries every month.
We have divided all the above evenly, and are now able to dispatch these items on a weekly basis.
I trust that all the above were done out of gratitude for what we all have.
It reminds me of this verse:
GRATITUDE unlocks the fullness of life;
It turns what we have into enough and more,
It turns a meal into a feast,
A house into a home,
A stranger into a friend.
GRATITUDE makes sense of our past,
brings peace for today, and
creates vision for tomorrow.
