St. Mary's Carnival 2008 Orphanage Project

I was quite surprised to discover this facebook group geared to giving back something to the needy in Trinidad on their visit for Carnival. It is an excellent idea and I hope that persons who may not want to join the group can also find some charity in their hearts to donate something, as small as it may be to the many charities that are establihsed in Trinidad. For more information on the St Mary's Orphanage project you can visit this facebook group.

Trini Carnival 08: St Mary's Orphanage Project

Starting
in Carnival 2005, myself and a few generous friends and strangers have been
bringing toys, books, clothing, medical supplies, and anything extra we could
fit into our suitcases down to Trinidad for the orphans at St. Mary's Orphanage
in Tacarigua.

Carnival Saturday, after Kiddie's Carnival, the items are
delivered to the kids and some of us visit with them as well.

Plenty
people have said that Carnival is not a time for this kinda thing, and people
are too selfish to even think about doing something for these children . But we
have, of course, proven them wrong.

To date, we Carnival Junkies hailing
from the US Canada, the UK, and Caribbean, have donated close to $5000US in
goods to the children at the home.

It only takes a second to pick
something up that could make the difference in a little person's life. Also, we
will take donations of gently used items as well. Closer to Carnival time, there
will be drop off locations in a few cities, for those of us who can't make it to
Trini this year or dont have the room in our suitcases.

Besides with all
the slackness soon too ensue, you might want to think about doing something good
to even the score, lol.
