There are just no words to describe today's celebration at Under the Oak Tree. We hosted 71 children from Alexandra to a once-in-a-lifetime experience - made possible with the generosity of Christina at Under the Oak Tree, her amazing team and our donors. VIP treatment was extended so graciously to make it such a memorable experience for everyone - they pulled out all the stops! So warm, so hospitable, so generous. It was so effortless for me to work with Christina to ensure a spectacular day for the children. It is not the norm at children's venues in Johannesburg, one of the exceptions. This is the perfect outdoor children's playground. It's local "Disney"! There is so much for children to experience - there is no need to go anywhere else! So many playground activities, popcorn, treats, jumping castle, rides, slides, bikes, swings, sandpit and characters - Minnie & Mickey, Olaf and a Ninja Turtle joined us today!
This playground is filled with magic! Real magic!And it does actually happen inside the giant Oak Tree.
Thank you to the entire team at Under the Oak Tree - from the VIP meet & greet on arrival to our farewell. A day to treasure and remember for a lifetime. For the children and our forest of Fairies too.
Much gratitude to you all. More than can ever be adequately expressed.
May you indeed flourish, prosper and be so richly blessed.
Children need to PLAY. It is their only responsibility. To be happy, to play - to imagine, to dream, to create and to have fun.
With love, hugs & kisses.
