Most people who know me know that I'm not great with any of the three things in the title!  I understand dogs better than kids (sorry!), I hate germs and sickness & can't look at blood and Christmas makes me run and hide!!

Melisa (SOS Tartarugas) hands out gift
Nevertheless we were happy to help NGO Agir pelo Sal (Action for Sal) to deliver toys and clothes to the children and babies in hospital on Sal on Christmas Eve. 

The toys were kindly donated by Mike Morgan and friends in Wales Morgan Office UK

Thanks to all who contributed, the kids were thrilled!

  1. What a wonderful thing you have done! I feel the same way about having a stronger connections to animals than I do people, however, we must always remember those less fortunate then ourselves especially during the holidays!
