Hi Alice, Thanks so much f…
Hi Alice,

Thanks so much for your generous contribution to our fundraiser! One of the nice things about working with the people of Sonsorol is that it's such a small community that you can quickly get to know the main players over there and help them in very simple, direct ways. When my dad was in the Peace Corps on Sonsorol there were about 30 people living on the island. Now there are one or two hundred descendants of those people spread around the world, but it's still a pretty tight-knit community (funnily enough, primarily through Facebook now). With a population that small it's really difficult to sustain their language and culture, and while I think one has to accept that a lot of the old ways will fall by the wayside, the canoe project is a great opportunity to teach the younger generation the value of preserving some of their heritage. But between you and me, Alice, I think some of the soft skills they're going to learn through this--putting together a budget, fundraising, managing the project, etc.--are probably just as important as the traditional canoe carving.

Anyway, thanks again for your support! An additional benefit of making nice with the Sonsorolese folks that I didn't mention on the website is that they have a really nice island if your looking for a vacation spot!

All the best to you and your fam!

Love,
John
