When the kids at Orchard Park School (Ontario) heard about Chuskit sitting in the District Hospital (Ladakh) for almost 5 months while bones healed... And when they heard that making friendship bracelets for EVERYONE was the highlight of each day... They got to it.
They collected thousands of the infamous rubber bands and sent them (via Tobie MacDonald in Banff) to us. They were great at Winter Camps. But they were truly a hit in Hanu, which didn't get a Winter Camp, But on a snowy, school's-cancelled day has Chuskit teaching everyone to make bracelets.
And I do mean everyone!
Thanks everyone at Orchard Park and the Sharps in the USA. Great love goes far in this world.
Cynthia will be blogging as she works with our Himalayan projects this year.
