We truly believe that giving back is good for your soul. Over the last year we’ve had so many donations from generous hearts looking to make a difference in the lives of another.
We’ve received practice-wear including jackets and pants, costumes, dance shoes, toys, even school supplies that have been gifted to the various foundations and orphanages supported by Soul Dancers.
One of the recent donations we received was from a young woman named Nicole who lives in North America – it was a laptop which is something that over in Colombia, is considered a luxury and not a necessity that so many have become accustomed to having.
There is a school named Instituto Calarcá, located in a small town in Colombia, called Calarcá, Quindío, where a few of our volunteers teach lessons. Unfortunately, the children at this school are very poor and don’t have much. In fact, many of them drive several hours just to make it in for their schooling. We gifted this laptop to a young student named John Arcilla who academically thriving in his grade.
Below you will see the photos of John receiving his new laptop – he was so surprised at the generous gift he was speechless.
After speaking to some of our donors and asking them why they give – the consensus is the knowledge that you’re helping others is hugely empowering and, in turn, can make you feel happier and more fulfilled. Research has identified a link between making a donation to charity and increased activity in the area of the brain that registers pleasure – proving that it really is far better to give than to receive.
Proceeds from the donations Soul Dancer’s receives, whether that be a monetary donation on our website or through purchase of our official Soul Dancers apparel, as you can see, go directly to those in need. We have no payrolls what so ever other than the payments made to those we are trying to help.
