Happy Thanksgiving

High Clouders - Wednesday, November 21, 2012

Hi Team,


With Thanksgiving tomorrow, we kick off the holiday season!  This is a time to reflect, be thankful, relax and be with our loved ones. We wanted to thank you for making High Cloud such a great family. We also wanted to take this opportunity to share with you a beautiful jewelry project that has been taking place with our High Cloud community in a very rural area in the country side of Colombia. The project focused on a group of 12 low-income women who before the implementation of the project, made only $5 a day to support their children.  With this project, High Cloud has been able to create employment opportunities for these single mothers by providing them with the tools they need and teaching them how to make beautiful pieces of jewelry (necklaces, bracelets, earrings, lucky charms, etc). Now, this group of women are able to sell their products at the local markets and have reduced their poverty level by increasing their daily income which indicates that this project has been successful, effective, has produced achievement and it is very sustainable.    


Here is a link to a video that shows how High Cloud has developed this program and how the women learn this art:  http://animoto.com/play/lomfqL14YamzGCz4fgSxrg


The strong positive impact of this program has led us to continue to develop it by getting more instructors, raw materials and expanding it to the poor areas of Bogota which is a city that hosts more than 270,000 displaced people, including single mothers and children. Many of you are already wearing the jewelry that these single mothers are making as an only source to sustain their children, so please wear them with pride as a symbol of the positive impact that you are making by volunteering and helping with our High Cloud events!


We as High Clouders have to be thankful for being able to provide these kind of sustainable programs to so many people and children in need.  A full report of this meaningful program will be posted on the website as well as the letters from the communities thanking the High Clouders for supporting them in living a better life.


Enjoy the video and get inspired to assemble tricycles and get toys for the kids in the local communities at Pro Bicycle Shop.  This is a quick example that all of our hard work and our wearing the High Cloud gear as Ambassadors goes a long way.


It is an honor for us to have you as our High Cloud family. You guys make High Cloud such a special place. We could not do it without you and for that we love you and we are eternally grateful.


Have fun tomorrow and let’s kick off this holiday season with a big smile and tons of energy!

 

Happy Thanksgiving!  


Adriana, Matt and Kailee

Thanks for your post. Another issue is that being a photographer consists of not only problems in taking award-winning photographs but in addition hardships in getting the best photographic camera suited to your needs and most especially situations in maintaining the grade of your camera. This can be very real and obvious for those photography enthusiasts that are in to capturing a nature's eye-catching scenes - the mountains, the actual forests, the particular wild or seas. Visiting these amazing places surely requires a digital camera that can live up to the wild's nasty conditions. best wishes!

I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your blog?

Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in
the way of content so people could connect with it better.
Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 images.

Maybe you could space it out better?

Howdy! Quick question that's totally off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My weblog looks weird when browsing from my iphone. I'm trying to find a theme
or plugin that might be able to resolve this issue.
If you have any suggestions, please share. Thanks!
