Imagine growing up in a world where touch was limited or even, dare I say, inappropriate. This is a far to common occurrence, not only for children in our country but worldwide. Applied correctly, basic nurturing is extremely beneficial for the development of a child. The benefits range from anatomical, structural, physiological, mental and behavioral... it's limitless.
Tina Allen, the founder of the Liddle Kidz foundation, has dedicated her time, experience and knowledge in order to chip away at this growing epidemic. She has put together a team of volunteers who have been specially trained in infant and pediatric massage techniques. Each one of them is willing to travel great distances in an attempt to help accomplish this goal.
700 applications where submitted for this mission but there where only 24 slots available. I am very proud to have been selected as one of the 24. This December, we leave for Vietnam for 2 weeks. While there, we will be visiting orphanages thoughtout the country, bringing our knowledge of nurturing touch to benefit these children. In addition, we will also be training the caregivers and helping them structure nurturing touch programs to be continued upon our departure. Hopefully we will leave behind profound and life changing effects.
Please help me in raising money for the Liddle Kidz Foundation. Every child deserves to be as happy as that infant in the wagon. (that's me a long time ago)
