I have four wonderful grandchildren. Lachlan lives on the island with his parents Amy & David. Zoe, Eakin, & Eliza live in Asheville, NC with their parents Stefen & Snee. Amy and Stefen both grew up on Ocracoke.
Stefen just sent me a newspaper article about Eakin, who is in the seventh grade, and his campaign to collect and send soccer balls and equipment to children in Haiti. It is a great story that makes a grandparent proud. I just had to share it with our readers. You can read the story by clicking here or on the photo of Eakin, below:
If you would like to donate equipment or money please follow this link: http://www.fondaps.com/Fondaps/Bienvenue___Welcome.html, then click on "Donate and Contact." It would be nice to mention Eakin's name if you make a donation. Thanks!
