Laughter Therapy in Action
In 1998 I had the opportunity of meeting Dr. Hunter "Patch" Adams in person. At the time I was living in Santiago, Chile, and was doing a lot of work with shows for children.
Children’s Christmas Play
In 2006, we organized a Christmas play with the children from a DIF shelter, so that they could perform it in surrounding villages. We prepared the costumes, and rehearsed the songs and motions the kids would need to perform the story of Jesus’ birth.
Christmas Posada for an orphanage
We held our annual Christmas Posada at the city park in 2006. We asked people we had been in contact with throughout the year if they would like to buy a Christmas gift for a child in need. Each person or family picked a child that they wanted to sponsor, along the lines of a “secret Santa”.
