On December 14, 2006, a dear friend of ours raised $3,800 for our organization by having a private party. She asked for $2,800 to be sent to Towarzystko Sw. Brata Alberta in Stalowa Wola. The remainder of her donation was distributed among orphanages in Stalowa Wola, Bialystok, and Jelenia Gora. In late December, we sent holiday packages full of toys, play-centers, and clothing. In addition to these, we sent a package to Dorota Lipec, a paralyzed girl, who needed everyday hygiene products.

On September 23, 2006, we held our first Junior Miss Polonia Pageant at the Holy Cross Parish Polish School of Language and Culture in Maspeth. All of the participants were awarded and joined us at the Pulaski Parade in October. This event raised money to help the disadvantaged and made it possible for us to connect with children in our community.

On August 10, 2006, Consulate General of the Rupublic of Poland, Trust Development Club, and Children’s Smile Foundation organized a lecture honoring the anniversary of the Warsaw Uprising and Battle of Warsaw in 1920. After the lectures “Powstanie Warszawskie” and “Cud nad Wisla” there was an auction of paintings. The goal of this event was to raise money for the treatment and rehabilitation of Dorota Lipec and Lukasz Hatlas and also send aid for the education of underprivileged Polish children in Kazakhstan through “Wspolnota Polska.” Over $9,000 was collected at this event.

On June 3, 2006, we celebrated International Children’s Day. We spent that day with children from the Holy Cross Parish Polish School of Language and Culture located in Maspeth. Children from grades 1-5 took part in a drawing contest entitled: “What can I give a child who lives in an orphanage?” Donated CDs and books were used to award the children. All of the contestants joined us on June 24th to take part in painting our new banner. We are honored to have met those young people who by their participation in our events showed us their good hearts and compassion.
