"The most beautiful people we have known are those who have
known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and
have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an
appreciation, sensitivity, and an understanding of life that
fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving
concern. Beautiful people do not just happen."
-- Elizabeth Kubler Ross
Letter to Bill Chasey from the Brzezno Dinner Dance Performers.
It was the best time of our lives! Going to Warsaw on a comfortable coach and staying in such a luxurious hotel as the Hilton Hotel was unbelievable for kids like us .Until we got the opportunity from you and the Foundation. How happy we were that we were chosen to perform at the Dinner Dance. For many of us this will not happen again. Everything there was gorgeous: The Hilton Hotel, the staff working there, the MULTIKINO, lunch at KFC. Everyone was so nice to us. Anyone has ever done so much for us as you. It is good to know that there is someone for whom we are important. We also realize that we can not let you down and prove that we deserve everything you have done for us. As Promise Kids we make a promise that we will try hard to be good, as you would like us to be. We miss you so much in Brzeżno and we are waiting for you here. You will always be the nicest guest in our school. Thank you so much! We wish you all the best.
We love you. God bless you.
Kids from Brzeżno School
Natalie Marciniak, FCSR Operations Manager, filled in for Bill Chasey as the Master of Ceremonies for the Dinner Dance.
Rogier van Zanten, Director of Operations of the Warsaw Hilton Hotel welcomed all of our Dinner Dance guests.
Over the past 10 years, we’ve tried our best to provide life-enhancing experiences for our PromiseKids. We have looked for experiences that normally wouldn’t be available to them in their homes, schools and communities. This year we hit the “Jack Pot.” We took 20 contestants from the Miss Polonia Contest on a “cooking” trip to the PromiseLand to prepare meals for the PromiseKids. We selected the Oparzno School, and a most exciting day was had by all.
Pictures show so much more than words, so we have included a short catalogue of photos that will give you all a warm place in your hearts.
Our Dollar a Day program may be just what you have been looking for and the PayPal method of delivering your money makes it so easy. We pay just about $1.00 to feed one hungry Polish child a hot-meal per school day, $20.00 per month, $200.00 per year. Click PayPal below to contribute.
