I've started to email and message businesses asking for their support in sponsoring the baggage fees or filling the insides of a suitcase. I am offering what I can in return; a huge thank you, links from this blog and our facebook page back to them, public thank yous on facebook and here, word of mouth, and the chance to have people from Jamaica say thank you as well. Today, someone decided to help me out.
Pinnacle Gymnastics, LLC, located at 83rd and K-7 in Shawnee has offered to sponsor the baggage fees AND fill a suitcase with supplies. THANK YOU!
My son Jax has been a student at Pinnacle for over a year now learning all that a 4 year old can learn, and loving it. His coaches have been fantastic, the support staff wonderful, and the owner, Morgan Kuchynka, a good friend. When I sent her an email today outlining the basics of what we are doing, and how I'm trying to accomplish that, she sent back an email shortly asking how she could help. It was just that quick. And then came her offer to sponsor the baggage fees AND fill a suitcase with school supplies. I am learning to never take for granted the kindness that others are showing me with this project.
So, if you've got a kid or two that is interested in gymnastics, check out Pinnacle. They offer a free trial class, classes for all ages (include adult ones!), a great pre-school program that Jax participated in over the summer, parents night out, summer camps, open gym time, and more. They have two locations in the Johnson County area. Be sure to let them know Soleful Suitcases sent you.
