Tulum schools are all in need of various items and repairs. Our first project at hurricanes kinder had many chairs that were falling apart and they told us that they needed about 100 new chairs for the kids.
A wonderful woman named Elvia heard about my project and wanted to help. She is the president of her Rotary Club in Cloverdale California. The Rotary Club is a wonderful international organization made up of professionals from every field you could think of. These people use their experience and their knowledge to help other people become as successful as they can be and use their collective power and drive to benefit charities all over the world.

Elvia and I met up during the summer with the Director of the school and presidents from the Tulum and Playa del Carmen Rotary Clubs. Things were set in motion for a great collabrative effort and I was very excited.
On October 4, 2010 I was greeted at the school by Elvia, the presidents of the Tulum, Playa del Carmen and Cancun Rotary Clubs, as well as several members of the Rotary Club Tulum and the city of Tulum. Not to mention the 100 colorful new chairs. It was a beautiful site.
Directly in front of me were the 100 beautiful chairs!
I cannot begin to tell you how amazing it felt to see the children, the teachers and the community SEE AND KNOW that we all can make a difference.
In addition to the chairs, Elvia also brought school supplies for the children as well. It was such an amazing image.
I would like to The Rotary Club of Cloverdale California and Elvia for your kindness and your hard work. I would also like to thank the Rotary Club of Tulum for all of your efforts and help to get the chairs delivered to the school. As well as the Rotary Clubs of Cancun and Playa del Carmen for your support and for all of the good you do in our communities. You are an inspiration to us all.
We all can make a difference. This was 1 woman who had a desire to help and found a way. With the help of these amazing groups and many amazing people- we can change to the world.
