At the beginning of January, I had the honor of visiting the children, teachers, families and others in Cuna Maya, Mexico with several wonderful friends from Capstone.
Cuna Maya is a small village in the jungle 20 miles southwest of Cancun. It is very warm, beautiful and filled with wonderful families.
And one of my favorite projects....they have build three Free Little Libraries for the village and fill them with new Capstone books each year as part of their visit.
As Capstone's Facebook page states, this year Capstone's big initiative was to provide the children access to educational materials through technology.
Wearable Books from Capstone. It was so much fun watching them try these out and it sure didn't matter that we didn't understand everything we were saying to each other.
Banding Together project to share with all of the children.
Eric and I cannot wait to see our friends in Cuna Maya again and hope to bring Hagan and our family there someday to meet them too. The time that we spent with them made a difference in our lives and taught us things we won't forget.
Thank you Capstone for doing great things in Mexico and in so many schools and communities around the world. It is very special to see how Bob Coughlan and Tom Ahern have empowered their employees to be part of this day and other volunteer opportunities throughout the year.
As I said, you are definitely making a difference in so many ways.
