Dear TOUCH Sponsors and Donors,

Happy Leap Year Day to each of you.


POEM BY A CHILD IN THE TOUCH PROJECT

Often, during our delegation trips to Ukraine, children stick letters or notes in our pockets and say, "Give to my sponsor" or "Please pass this onto my friend in the U.S." When we arrive home and try to sort out the notes, we realize that most of them are in Ukrainian and some of them do not have a name. Such is the case of this poem that was written in Ukrainian on a piece of paper with a drawing of cranes in a nest at the top of the paper. Vita, an exchange student from Uzhgorod, who is living in Philomath, Oregon translated this poem for us and we thought you would enjoy reading it. Since we do not know to whom it was intended, it is for all of you.

Homeland
By an anonymous child in Uzhgorod, Ukraine

There's a creeping ant.
There's a gushing river.
Don't tear away the chamomile flower,
Don't trample down the grass.
The forest is green,
The nutwood is green.
Look how beautiful our homeland is!
Cranes are flying in the sky.


TOUCH -8 DELEGATION TRIP IN FALL 2008
Speaking of the Fall TOUCH-8 Delegation trip, it is already time to begin making travel arrangements for this event. We are planning to travel to Ukraine for 11-14 days leaving in late September or early October. As always, it will be a great experience, but we have two additional highlights this year. Five young women in Girl Scout Troop 199 will be accompanying the delegation with two of their scout leaders. These girls, who are about 15-16 years of age, have been saving for this trip for the last 5 years and will be meeting the young woman who they sponsor in Ukraine, Anna Yurik. In addition, the Maharimbas, a Marimba band from the Corvallis area, will be traveling to Ukraine and will be playing at City Days in Uzhgorod, Ukraine. Our plan is to meet the Maharimbas in Ukraine and enjoy their company and music. The Maharimbas are planning to do a concert for the various programs in The TOUCH Project. We know the TOUCH kids will love the Maharimbas! If you’d like to listen to part of a Maharimba concert from the Corvallis, Oregon Fall Festival in September 2007, click on this YouTube video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g2kXcvDJ18s&feature=related

So, if you are thinking about coming, we would like to know as soon as possible. We can get reduced airfare by booking early and as a group. Right now, we are planning to fly the new direct Northwest Airlines flight from Portland, Oregon to Amsterdam, Netherlands and then to Budapest, Hungary. From Budapest, we will take a van to Uzhgorod, Ukraine. Sabra Killen is working with a travel agent. Please email her SOON if you are thinking about coming. Her email is rankil@aol.com. If we book early, the airfare cost will be under $1000 per round trip.


C-USCA SUPPORTS PUBLIC SCHOOL #14 WITH A NEW FENCE

The Corvallis-Uzhgorod Sister Cities Association board recently voted to approve the allocation of $9000 to purchase a new fence at Public School #14 in Uzhgorod. Currently, the playground for the school is unfenced and used as a pathway for the public. This often creates an unsafe environment for the children when some of those public members may be drunk or hostile. The fence will give these children room to play soccer and other sports in a safe location. We thank the C-USCA for this support of Public School #14.


TOUCH RENEWAL DEADLINE HAS COME AND GONE

Thanks again for your renewals and donations. We will begin now to work with our program directors in Ukraine to determine what their needs are before our delegation trip in the Fall 2008. Currently, all children in the T OUCH Project have sponsors. This is our goal each year. Thank you! If you know of someone who would like to be a sponsor, we are always accepting sponsors of Public School #14. Donations can be sent to:
C-USCA
P.O. Box 176
Corvallis, OR 97339 (Write TOUCH-PS14 in the memo)


ENGLISH INSTRUCTION FROM VOLUNTEER

Sara Cropper, a recent college graduate from Ashland, Oregon, is currently in Ukraine volunteering with The T OUCH Project. Sara’s parents, brother, sister-in-law, sister, and brother-in-law are all longtime TOUCH sponsors and she decided that she would like to go to Ukraine and volunteer to work with these children for about 6 weeks. Sara has been busy teaching English to the children at the Chaslivtsi Orphanage, rocking abandoned newborn babies at the Children’s Hospital in Uzhgorod, and visiting the public high schools. We thank Sara for this gift of her time and expenses.

Video of Boys at Public School #14

These cute little boys at Public School #14 in Uzhgorod spontaneously broke into this clap dance routine for us during the TOUCH Delegation's visit in October 2007.

Video- Roma Dancing at Public School #14 in Uzhgorod

This video shows students at Public School #14 performing Roma dances for the TOUCH delegation in October 2007. The costumes that are worn by the girls were purchased from donated TOUCH funds. A member of the TOUCH 2006 delegation, Elaine Rea, paid for the new accordian being played by the school's music teacher. The TOUCH Project works in partnership with School #14 to preserve the culture and history of the Roma families associated with this school in Uzhgorod.

TOUCH Project Update - December 31, 2007


December 31, 2007

Dear TOUCH Sponsors and Donors,

Happy New Year to all of you!!

RENEWAL DEADLINE IS JANUARY 1, 2008
The TOUCH Project is now entering its 8th year of existence. Without our sponsors, the program would not exist. We thank all those sponsors who have renewed. We still have 60 children (out of 286) whose sponsors have not sent in their renewal. We know that some of you will receive this email and go, “Yikes! I forgot to renew and I meant to do so.” We are not going to cut off any of our sponsors who are a day or week late in their renewals. We value your sponsorship too much. So let us know if your sponsorship is “in the mail.” If you are wondering if you are one of those sponsors who have yet to renew, just check the list of paid sponsors and donors at the end of this email (or in the attachment). If your name is NOT on the list, then you have not renewed. The list is arranged alphabetically by sponsors of children in the various programs so scroll through them all. If you are not renewing, please let us know so we can work to reassign your child as quickly as possible. Thanks for your consideration on this matter. Finally, if you are not on the list, but have renewed, please let us know so we can correct the error.

END OF YEAR DONATIONS CONTINUE TO ARRIVE
What a way to start the New Year! The TOUCH Project recently received a donation of $10,000 from 2 individuals from Vancouver, Washington who wish to remain anonymous. The donors are friends of Peggy Giles who has traveled several times to Ukraine with The TOUCH Project. We are grateful to Peggy for sharing information about the efforts of The TOUCH Project and we are very grateful to these two very generous individuals.

As we have said before, we work hard to keep our overhead at a minimum. We are reimbursed for stamps and an occasional printer cartridge. No TOUCH funds are used for any expenses related to our travels to Ukraine. We work as volunteers in what has turned out to be a full-time job during much of the year. We have been asked to take the TOUCH model to other cities in Ukraine and our response has been that we want to keep the program manageable and successful. If we expand, we will need to move into a corporate model rather than operating on a volunteer basis and funds will be diverted away from providing direct benefit to the children in The TOUCH Project.

So we appreciate these donations, which allow us to partner with our sponsors and donors to brighten the lives and surroundings of the children in the program. We have amazing sponsors and donors! Many of you have made contributions above and beyond the requested $60 sponsorship fee. As you may remember, Chiara and Emil Dittmer made a $5000 donation in memory of of Martin and Caterina Rathje earlier this fall. Additional major donations, which have come in during December, include:

$1000 for Public School #14 in Uzhgorod from Jim and Joyce Spain of Corvallis, Oregon
$1000 in memory of Alice (Olynyk) Abbey from Lynne Abbey-Lee and Gregory Lee of Lakewood, Colorado
$500 from Franklin Conklin Foundation (Demarest Family)
$500 from Linda Sekermestrovich of Corvallis, Oregon

Thank you for your generosity! As Linda Sekermestrovich once wrote on a note accompanying a past donation, “Go work your magic!” We will do our best to do so with these wonderful contributions.

ANNUAL REPORT FORMS FOR REHAB CENTER HAVE ARRIVED FROM UKRAINE
We just received the Annual Report Forms for the children at the Rehabilitation Center in Uzhgorod in the mail. We try to bring all of these back to the U.S. with us when we return from Ukraine in the fall, but due to a very busy schedule, the Rehab Staff were unable to complete the forms. We now have them in our possession and can send them to the renewed Rehab Center sponsors. Thank you for your patience.

GIRL SCOUT TROOP 199 SUPPORTED BY GLENN KLEIN
It’s always nice when things work out in a win-win situation. Long time TOUCH supporter Glenn Klein was one of our sponsors this year with an older child who grew up and moved on. He asked if he could pay for someone’s sponsorship this year rather than sponsoring a new child. It came to mind that a nice match for this situation would be Girl Scout Troop 199 who are sponsors of Anna Yurik in Ukraine but who are also trying hard to raise funds for their Fall 2008 trip to Ukraine. Glenn was happy to pay for their sponsorship this year, which saved them money in the fundraising arena. Thank you, Glenn!

POSTAGE TO UKRAINE
Remember that first class, airmail letters to Ukraine weighing 1 oz. or less are 90 cents. If you stick bulky items in the letter, the cost will likely go up. Postcards are 90 cents, also.

MESSAGE FROM KATHERINE BIZILIA, TEACHER AT SCHOOL #1 IN UZHGOROD
Katherine shared that her students from School #1 brought Christmas gifts to the children at the Chaslivtsi Orphanage. She wrote, “I am so proud of my students. They went to Chaslivtsi for St. Nicholas Day with so many presents. It was GREAT! Another grade of students at the school bought a DVD player for the Rehabilitation Center.”

We are always grateful and happy when we see connections occurring between the children in The TOUCH Project and the citizens of Uzhgorod.

MESSAGE FROM DR. IRA ROSHKOVICH, VICE DIR. OF THE REHAB CENTER
FROM THE BOTTOMS OF OUR HEARTS WE WOULD LIKE TO WISH YOU A SEASON FULL OF JOY AND HAPPINESS! LET YOUR HEARTS BE FULL OF HOPE, FAITH AND LOVE.
From the Children, Parents and Staff of MSRC (Medical-Social Rehabilitation Center for Children with Disabilities)

Ira also sent an Internet greeting that can be accessed by clicking on the following or just copy and paste it into your browser’s address box:
