ve puts on the global

December 5, 2006, Voluntarios de le Esperanza formally announced our presence to Chile at Cafe Literario in downtown Santiago. We invited local NGOs, potential partners, and interested individuals to a presentation including our new video, 2 testimonials by past volunteers Jonah and Lindsay, and a discussion panel focusing on volunteerism in Chile and South America. As each guest entered the event a volunteer tied a simple green and blue bracelet around their wrist, and as each guest left they took out of a jar a piece of paper with a wish written by our kids. Lindy and I displayed some of our photography, and the evening closed with wine and appetizers. After many long days and a lot of hard work, we all entered the cocktail hour feeling a huge sense of relief. Here are some photographs of current volunteers with kids, and below you can see our new logo.
