I received the following comments from people about the FreddyLink BBQ.
“I can’t believe I got the opportunity to talk to my Sponsor child through a Skype call today at the Freddylink BBQ. When I walked into the lodge and heard that we were going to be able to talk to people in Haiti, I never in a million years thought that we would get a chance to talk to the children. On top of that, I never thought that out of all the children in our community in Haiti would my boy be one of the many on the other end of the call. I remember asking Bernie if by any chance Kenama was there and also praying that by some miracle he was. As soon as I saw his face on that screen, everything around me stopped and all these emotions were running through me. Being able to see him, hear his voice and know that he is okay, I don’t have words to describe how powerful and amazing it was. It hit me in that moment, how special it is to have a connection like this to these children. To know that we are making a difference one penny at a time. As I watched him wave and say goodbye the tears started running down my face. I remember saying over and over again “Thank you God, thank you for everything, you’re so awesome!” Even from the other side of the world this young boy has changed my life.”

“It was probably the best Sunday afternoon I have spent in awhile and hearing news directly from the field really put a face to all our efforts, I think the Skype connection was a perfect end to a great day.”
