If you read past posts you know that I used social media to obtain a group of beanie babies to be given to the Nicaraguan Youth Troupe performers and their brothers sisters. The production, Animales del Paradiso, took place July 6 in Managua at the Escuela Acahaulinca and was a tremendous success. It will be part of a documentary about using the arts to promote the welfare of children in underdeveloped parts of Nicaragua. http://www.nicaraguadispatch.com/news/2013/06/theater-project-encourages-kids-to-imagine-change/7847. It is sponsored by InnerCHANGE Works. www.innerchangeworks.org As one can tell from the photos the beanie babies were a hit with the children.
