“I just want to thank you for giving me the opportunity to be part of Project Colors. I really appreciate this a lot. I really love working with those special group of boys, they made a huge difference in my life. They taught me to appreciate what I have and not to take what I have for granted.
I miss them so much and is looking forward to see the whole group again.” ~ Alexis -Plumpy Nut ( Nutty Buddy).
“Wow that was an amazing experience for me. Having to make a new healthy kids product from peanut butter was fun. Plus I just love Peanut Butter but don’t we all? I am so over flown with emotions now I feel like crying!!!!
Being part of the community outreach projects filled my heart with joy and happiness. Project COLORS made such an impact on my life you will have no idea.
Thank you again….Peace out” ~ Rodwill
I had experienced poverty when I was growing up, however, Thembalethu is beyond my imagination. Poverty is real. Whenever I closed my eyes and focus a little bit the pictures of the people who need help is haunting. I can see Grandpa right now, Annie’s children and old aged at her house and the dead puppy besides the road. I simply pour my heart to them. My YMDC project is coming soon. I had listenened to the Antony Robbins life management skills , thanx for introducing him to me. I had also inspired by his speeches and Yale University materials. The philosophy practical is also helpful to me. plis dont underestimate it I am now number 1 fan of all the above. Greet everyone who knows me. I will send you my next moves. Thanx Sunny, you rock and I am now rolling. much much LOVE Papapsy Tafadzwa Dube firstname.lastname@example.org Nov 24th 2011
