Graphic Design Logo for the Foundation

The Foundation needed me (Bridgette) to design a logo for the musical group "Tropicana" who has concerts to raise money for the Hogar del Nino Orphanage.
I designed 6 different logos and this is the one they picked.

I then created 3 different color studies for the logo. Still waiting to hear which one they will choose. Tropicana is having a concert May 31st where my logo will be shown.

Sensory Garden

A group of volunteers from Florida came for 2 weeks and we helped them build this sensory garden the kids will use doing physical therapy.

we painted rocks and laid them out in a path we made.

telephone the kids can talk/hear through.

this is made for the kids to feel and walk on the different textured tiles.

this is for the kids to hit each pole to hear a different sound.

Afternoon School Class

Table Manners:

We taught the kids about table manners.

Object lesson: We gave each of the kids each a graham cracker and a napkin. We taught them to say please to receive the graham cracker and then to say thank you when we gave them one. We taught them to chew with their mouth closed and then to wipe your mouth and hands after they were finished eating.

And then of course, we drew a picture of the manners and they colored.

Community Living:

We taught the kids about the community they are a part of at the Hogar. We taught them about all the people that are in their community and how we should all work together.

Kids participating in class.

We then made a map of the Hogar and explained about all of the people that make up the community.

They then colored maps of the Hogar

Edwin's is quite the arteest!

Food Pyramid:

We taught the kids about health and the food pyramid.

They then made pictures of some of their favorite foods and put it on the correct spot of the chart.

Noche Especial!

First Noche Especial:
We had our first Noche Especial with Geovanny, Efrain, and Alonso. We brought them up to our casita and played Candyland (which is now Geovanny's new favorite game), ate chocolates, laughed a lot, and had a lot of fun! We really enjoy Noche Especial because we are able to give individualized attention to the ninos that come to our casita.


Geovanny hoping so bad that he gets the card he needs to win

Geovanny won!

Second Noche Especial:
We had our second Noche Espial with Ana, Walter and Nahum. (It was Ana's and Walter's first time ever doing Noche Especial so they were especially excited to come!) We played Uno, had chocolates, built REALLY tall castles out of Jenga blocks and then watched them fall (Ana would laugh very hard when the castle would fall), made bracelets, and listened to Ana sing her famous "Papaya" song. It was a lot of fun and we loved laughing and spending time with the ninos!

We made cards for Ana, Nahum and Walter that had chocolates, a lei to put on when they got to our casita, and a cup for some Coke.

The chocolates are very delicious!

The gang has arrived!
