Ecuador Valentine Thanks

Here is an Ecuador Valentine thanks. The people of Ecuador have a lot of love and thanks to send you from Ecuador today because of Ecuador roses.

Ecuador Valentine roses at our home.

For several years we have offered Ecuador roses… first for Christmas, then the New Year. Mother’s day, then then Valentine’s Day and finally year round.

We do this as a service… charge $20 more than the roses cost and donate this difference to  help Ecuador’s poor.

We have raised tens of thousands of dollars to help the poor,  Ecuador schools and provide scholarships to bright kids in Ecuador who otherwise would not have a chance.

So today… the day we celebrate love, I would like to share how your care… and how your sending love to your Valentine with Ecuador roses… has helped the poor.

We selected the village of Topo as one recipient of the donations. We asked what do you need.   “Never enough fruit”, one person said.  “The school is in trouble,” stated someone else.  And “the old ones are cold and sad” said another.

So we collected a team of friends and headed up to inspect.. to see what we could do.

First, we bought out the local fruit store.  They have deliveries direct from the coast.  Here are Franklin and Alberto loading up.

We packed the truck and were glad we did. The people acted like we brought gold instead of bananas, apples, melons, plums, oranges.

Upon arriving  we first inspected the school.

Their equipment…

They need two things first.  More water containers and pipes.  The school does not have water and no pipes to take it to the lavatories.

They have to keep water in 50 gallon drums to flush the toilets.

Plus they have two entire rooms available for a kitchen and dining hall… but no water there.  So they use this equipment instead and feed the children outside.

You have donated enough to fix this all this!  The residents there provided the supplies… they worked together each Saturday to make this happen.

We filled their list of needed supplies.  First pipes… more water catchment tanks and concrete blocks to enhance the walls around the school.

So this helped stop… long lines outside…

Your donations through the purchase of Ecuador roses made it possible for a better kitchen… a dining hall… and more fruit.

Plus the old ones…who were cold.

We brought alpaca ponchos for all of them.  This small village has 28 very old women and 4 very very old men. The reaction from these wonderful, sweet and simple people was one that brings tears again to my eyes.  All of us guys were trying to act like we were not crying… but we were.

I’ll try to share as best I can with my tiny Sony camera how these people feel about what you did for them, as they donned their warm ponchos.

I cannot…

Thank you. Thank you.  Thank you.

Merri and I hope you are blessed with as much love on this day of love as we felt that day. And just think this money just keeps on improving, helping and giving.
