Puzzles to Remember
Here is the wonderful email I received today from Institucion El Gringo Paisa in Colombia:
Thank you for the shipment of puzzles, we here in Colombia appreciate your generosity. Sincerest apologies for not contacting you sooner.
Institucion El Gringo Paisa has moved to a new location. We have outgrown our original facility and we have been involved in setting up the new one. The patients are delighted using the puzzles and to see the happiness on their faces is a true Blessing. Thank you for the commitment you make in helping others in need.
Success and Happiness to you in the future, Respectfully, Robert K. / El Gringo Paisa
