November, 28 2013

On November 28, Cucu Catalina, FLEX’13, organized a celebration of Thanksgiving at the ‘Aschiuta’ orphanage. The 8 volunteers from the Volunteer Club and her English teacher Ana Mascautan spent 4 hours with 11 children aged from 5 till 13 that cannot afford to celebrate Thanksgiving. They started with a game for the children, after which they explained what Thanksgiving is. Then they served the children with Kebabs, cookies, candies and “placinte”. Before starting to eat, the children each said a thank you to somebody to show their appreciation. The volunteers also brought some donations from which toys and socks. Two of the volunteers dresses up as Indians and played in these roles with the kids. The goal of this activity was to promote American Culture and volunteering and to show how important it is and how good it feels to help somebody in need.
