What Does It Mean to Change a Life?

Imagine going from sleeping with 18 kids crammed into a single room to a luxurious suite at the Barcelo Resort in Punta Cana? That’s the experience six lucky children from La Casa Rosada had September, 2008. Never had these kids known luxury before the Foundation 4Life took them on an overnight adventure to Barcelo’s all-inclusive resort. The kids took the resort’s slogan, “have a taste of everything,” quite literally, and each meal was a feast! In addition, the resort’s have-it-all, do-it-all sumptuous accommodations were beyond what the children could even conceive was possible, giving them a glimpse into a world of opportunity they might otherwise never have known. While they were in Punta Cana, the children sang and shared their stories at the International Networkers Team convention, and also helped out selling raffle tickets at the Foundation 4Life booth. Needless to say, an adventure like this was life-changing for the children at La Casa Rosada, and when it was time to go home, the tears flowed freely. The Foundation 4Life is making arrangements to bring other children from La Casa Rosada to Florida for Illuminate ’09, the next 4Life International Convention in 2009. Seeing the pure joy these kids feel at the chance to experience the Barcelo Resort or Walt Disney World® is what Together, Building People® is all about.
