In reference to the ongoing project to get plastic into the hands of the street kid...,

 

I have just recieved some really cool news from India, this is really awesome!

 

Dear Laura, Marty and co.,

I've been meaning the write you all since we starting distributing the
discs made in Joey's memory. I wanted to share some of the stories and
captured moments about the discs.

Here is one from Ajat Shatru:
"Hi Jaideep,
These days I play frisbee with some kids coming from surrounding area
where we live in Gurgaon.Vinita gave me 6 Frisbee which you send her.A
girl from family of construction workers also playing with us from few
days.Today her parents decided to leave the place as they have no
work.Since this girl was playing Frisbee so well ,I decided to give her
one Frisbee with promise that she will help children to throw it where
ever she lives in future.She was not going to school because of
ignorance parents & poor conditions.I am very happy to connect children
of all background with frisbee ."

Another is a photograph from a childrens team (Team Smokey!) set up in
the Philippines (I managed to get the discs out there recently!) by Kai
Abueg. The children come from an underprivileged area and Kai has been
teaching them Ultimate for some months now.

These are just 2 'stories' from a plethora of how the discs have been
making a difference to children's lives since we started distribution a
few months ago. We have finally distributed all the discs and people
continue to share their stories of change with me.

Thank you once again for all your help and support, I cannot even begin
to imagine a better way to celebrate Joey's life after hearing how much
positivity is being spread through these discs. I can only hope that
continues...

Warm regards,

Jaidip & The Ahmedabad Ultimate Team

we have a Christmas charity here in Canada called the Samaritian's Purse ... in a shoebox u put pencils, crayons, combs, facecloths etc and take to a church and they distribute it to Samaritan Purse who in turn take the shoeboxes to Africa, Arabia, South and Central America where these small gifts will make a difference to some poor kids. I sent 2 boxes off with 2 discs each in them along with the other stuff. Included in French, English Spanish and Porteguese was the rules of disc and how to set up a course with trees or tin buckets as targets.  Hopefully somebody gets them and starts chucking and have a little fun.

Where in Canada? I been everywehere, just like Stompin' Tom himself!
