Cindy Schmehl, Executive Director of To Love A Child said “We are absolutely thrilled to be able to tell the story of our work in Haiti through an original song by songwriter Thomasina Winslow. This is such a unique opportunity and we are so grateful to Caffè Lena for creating this concept and to Fingerpaint for helping to bring it to reality. It is a win-win for all involved”.
Representing To Love a Child for the Truesongs project will be Kimberly Val, a young lady who began working with the organization when she was in high school in 2008. To Love a Child’s story is told through her eyes, a young woman who was determined to learn English, go to college, and have a career all the while working with To Love a Child as a translator, project assistant and later a nurse in our clinic. She has witnessed first-hand the impact our organization has had in Haiti where we have provided latrines, clean water, agriculture projects, solar power, education and more.
On November 21, 2021 our story will come to life on stage as part of TrueSongs: Lyrics of Life. Designed to be collaborative, cathartic and compelling, TrueSongs pairs storytellers and songwriters to show lives changed for the better by local nonprofits. The show is produced by Caffè Lena and underwritten by Saratoga-based marketing firm Fingerpaint.
