The Countdown Begins!
Greetings readers and earthraging followers! In less than a month, the swim program will commence at the R35 School. We’re just a little bit excited… Three updates follow 1. Gear Prep 2. Student Prep. 3. Donation Campaign coming soon!
- Clare and Haley have been busy logistics-prepping in Colorado and San Fransisco, respectively, before leaving for Thailand in a few weeks. Gear has been pouring in from two spectacularly generous dive shops in Colorado, Denver Divers and Tortuga Bay in Greeley. Check out the amount of gear donated (note: cat is not coming to Thailand).
- The team in Thailand, Keith from Wicked Diving, the current ESL teachers and ESL coordinator Lak at R35, have also been prepping. The students have been bugging Khun Lak (which means Teacher Lak) nonstop, “When can we go swimming?!” Here’s the preliminary sign-up sheet for the program (notice the multiple pages stacked!):
- Annnnd we’re launching a donations campaign any day now, so stay tuned!
