Delegation from Hangzhou arriving 9-5

We have exciting news to report from Red Thread Charities!  A group of 7 ladies from the orphanage in Hangzhou will be arriving next Monday and will be visiting therapy centers in Wisconsin and Minnesota.  These are women who have embraced the training RTC has provided in pediatric OT and PT and have lovingly improved the lives of the children living in the orphanage.  They will be hosted by families in the area and will be touring Avanti Center, Point of Stillness, Little Adventures Daycare, Gillette Children's Hospital, Childrens Home Society, Fraser School, Cornelia Elementary, The Therapy Place, Courage Center and the U of M.  We plan on sneaking in some fun evening events as well and of course, no tour to the Twin Cities would be complete without  a shopping trip to the MOA.  For most of these women, it will be their first time in America!  

Our charity will be purchasing special adaptive equipment such as pediatric walkers, bathing chairs and seating systems to send back with the delegation.  If you would like to contribute to this cause please visit our website at http://www.redthreadcharities.org
