ERKÜ toetas laste väljapanekut EV100 kohta/ EANC supports children’s EV100 presentation

Kadri Jacobsen Oregonis saatis hiljuti ERKÜle palve:

“Minu 8 aastane tütar Annika on giidide grupis Eugene, Oregonis. 3. veebruaril tähistatakse Oregonis giididega World Thinking Day’d ning selle raames erinevad rühmad on esindamas erinevaid riike. Minu tütre rühm esindab Eestit. Oma väljapanekus räägivad nad Eesti Vabariigi sünnipäevast, Lottest ja Eesti huntidest. Lugesin eile infolehest, et toetate EV100 tähistamist. Tüdrukud on ostnud värvilised paberid ja muu vajaliku Eesti lippude valmistamiseks. Samuti tellisid nad peenleiba, et külalistele oleks mida pakkuda. Kahjuks pole neil piisavalt raha, et kaunistada oma väljapanekut. Oleks tore kui neil oleks siniseid, musti ja valgeid õhupalle ning muid kaunistusi, mis nende väljapanekule tähelepanu lisaks. Kas teil oleks nende projekti võimalik toetada?”

ERKÜ otsustas toetada, ja pärast üritust kirjutas Kadri Jacobsen uuesti:

“Meil oli tore üritus laupäeval ja 300 lapse ringis astus meie väljapaneku juurest läbi. Jagasime infomaterjale Eesti kohta ja pakkusime peenleiba. Võtame oma väljapaneku kaasa 24. veebruaril ka Portlandi vabariigi aastapäeva pidustustele…. Meil oli üks vahva päev ning nüüd tüdrukud soovivad raha säästa, et mõne aasta pärast juba oma silmaga Eestimaad näha.”

EANC supports children’s EV100 presentation

Kadri Jacobsen from Oregon recently sent a request to EANC:

“My 8-year-old daughter Annika belongs to a girl scout troop here in Eugene, Oregon. On February 3, Oregon girl scouts will celebrate World Thinking Day; troops will do presentations on various countries.  My daughter’s troop will represent Estonia; for their presentation they will talk about EV100, Lotte and wolves.  I read in your newsletter that EANC is supporting local EV100 events.  The girls have bought colored paper and other materials to make Estonian flags.  They also bought rye bread to offer guests.  Unfortunately, they don’t have enough money to decorate their exhibit. It would be nice if they could have blue, black and white balloons and other decorations to draw attention to their display.  Could you help?”

EANC agreed to help and Kadri Jacobsen wrote again after the event:

“We had a great event and 300 children viewed our exhibit.  We distributed information about Estonia and offered tastes of rye bread.  We will show our exhibit on Feb. 24 at Portland’s EV100 celebration.  WE had a wonderful day, and the girls now want to save money to visit Estonia themselves.”
