Hello Friends and Families!
We would like to invite you to participate in the first Hulapaloosa, an event that will benefit the United Methodist Church program beginning this year. http://www.umcabundanthealth.org
See program summary below.
I have been asked to hold a FREE art class for the first project. We are the first group to make hulahoop crafts for this program so that we can show the others how it is done! We will have a photographer there to document how we do it. Schools and classes will be sent the project to work on as a group around the world with us being the example. We would love for you to come show us how it’s done. I will keep the projects for our presentation and then gladly return them to the Reuse Center for you to pick up by the end of August.
If you need more information please email me at Duncanrag@comcast.net
Let me know how many children and how many parents/chaperones will be attending and which dates/times that you can attend.You are welcome to come as many times as you like.
Thank you and looking forward to meeting you! - Duncan Ragsdale & Eppie Bailey
Summary: Abundant Health – our promise to children is the global health initiative of the United Methodist Church. This initiative is led by Global Health Unit of Global Ministries.
The problem: Children are our future; yet nearly 6 million children under the age of five die every year. Millions of children and adolescents still don’t have access to the life-saving information, services and supplies they need for a healthy fulfilled life.
The goal: To reach 1 million children with lifesaving and health promoting measures by 2020.
The Solution: The United Methodist Church is working to bring better health to all children in every place —from our own backyards to around the world.
• We want to ensure safe births and good nutrition, promote wellness, improve health education and access to care. We want to save lives through prevention and treatment.
• We seek to engage churches around the world to provide services and ministries to improve children’s health, and to give to support global needs. Learn more
• We are working with the United Nations initiative “Every Woman Every Child”, the Global Strategy for Women’s, Children’s and Adolescent’s Health to reach children with lifesaving interventions.
