Throw back Thursday has taken root:-) we are in our fourth week....Wooohoo...woohooo!!!!
We are having so much fun doing it. If you are wondering what on earth we are taking about, then your Thursday have been a little dull, ok, ok well maybe not dull but it is lacking an extra smile or chuckle to make it awesome!!!!
Throwback Thursday is when we reminise on childhood things;games,sweets,books,phrases,fears,joys etc. The things that made your childhood and our childhood fun.
Last week we talked about ring games or play ground games and the week before was all about sweets. I couldn't handle all the sweet thoughts I had to go out and buy some tamarind balls.....they were soooooo good!!!!!
Ring games left us feeling pumped and ready to go out doors and play dandie shandy,hopscotch and ring around the roses. However the realities of adulthood kept us indoors....we did eventual play twister and Jenga!!!
Come on family follow us on Twitter
This is were TBT(Throw back Thursday) happens.

Have you ever wondered how things fall into place at times when you least expect it????
The past couple of weeks have been like that for us and we are so thankful for the entire process. We started this foundation on a hope,a dream and the desire to bring awareness of children living in poverty in rural Jamaica.
Our second annual Toy & Book drive is in progress and we are constantly blown away by the generosity of the people around us. An open heart and an open mind find possiblities in a little.Those possibilities become infinite with a lot. Each box of toys or books that have been donated has the potential to bring a smile,boost an imagination and impact a life. To the child that receives it,it is the unexpected gift.
We have now started to expect the unexpected and to dream beyond what we know. We urge you all to continue to show your love and support,your donations will inspire lives in unexpected ways!!!!
Much love and Walk good!!!

We are always so excited for the weekend only to have it go by at the speed of light. This week I want to ask everyone to take a minute and just breathe and enjoy a few quiet moments and be thankful that we made it through the week.
This weekend will be an exciting one for us, we usually visit and retrive your generous gifts from our collection boxes. We will also be donating some food supplies to our local pantry as thanksgiving approaches.
Huge hugs & kisses to the Hendriks,Allen,Miller and Johnson families for donating to our Hurricane Sandy relief box.
Big thank you to Maria for her generous donation of books to our Toy and Book drive!!!!
Happy Friday,enjoy your weekend!!!!
Much love& Walk Good

If you had a childhood we want to hear your fun memories on Thursdays so please get involved!!!!
We shared some stories via Twitter yesterday and it was a fun experience, so we urge our RKMF family to share.

Growing up in the Caribbean,hurricanes were a way of life.People knew what to do and the necessary precautions to take once the season approached. This never altered the after effects of the hurricane. The emotions are always raw, the reality of devastation and the eerie quietness that would fill the community.
Being prepared doesn't take away the pain you feel when you lose all that you have worked for or the person you love. All you feel is pain and at times a sense of hopelessness.
The silver lining in this whole process is the out pouring of love and kindness from neighbors and strangers that unite us.
We become family and the differences of race, religion,status,gender and culture; that once separated us is erased. Realizing that we are all the same and we need the same common resources are common threads throughout these stories.
The foundation is assisting in this healing process,by focusing on the little ones. They are scared,cold and afraid,they miss the routine of life and the things they can relate to. As adults we can express ourselves in a variety of ways.Children may not be able to do the same.
Our relief boxes are filled with blankets,socks,little gloves,pajamas,rompers, shoes,mittens and hats for their precious heads.
We are urging everyone as they donate to remember to add a little pair of gloves or a baby blanket to their donation,it goes a long way.
If you want to donate to our box. Visit our website @ www.therkmfoundation.org
Email us to arrange a pick up @ info@ therkmfoundation.org. or RKMFoundation1@
If not, just drop off your donations at the red cross,salvation army, churches or schools who have set up donation centers.
Let's get involved and give back in any way we can!!!!!
Much love and walk good:-)

The good news is, we have been working behind the scenes to keep our foundation active. We survived super storm Sandy,the NorEaster,power cuts,gas shortages and can now say that we are looking forward to the joys of thanksgiving while giving back to those affected by the storm.
Our next post will let you know what we are doing to help those affected and how you can get involved.
Talk to you soon& Walk good.

What does Sandy have to do with our foundation you may asks? Everything!!!!!!!
Sandy is a mega storm that has linked us in more ways than one, she first hit Jamaica last week were she left millions without power and and water, she continued through the Caribbean blazing a path of destruction behind her. Now she is coming directly at us, we are all connected not just by this monster storm but in our reaction and the fact that we feel each others pain!!!!!!
We want to say to our extended RKM family and supporters be safe, get the necessary supplies and if you are in evacuation areas please evacuate!!!! We grew up in the Caribbean and understand the effects first hand. Hurricanes are not to be taken lightly they can be life changing, be safe!!!
Much Love to you all, talk soon!!!!!

I am so sorry that I have been M.I.A since saturday, but it has been your own fault:-) The last couple of days have been about replying to emails, arranging pickups, emptying collection boxes,picking up donations and then packing them into our storage space. Climbing a few flight of stairs is a breeze but after the seventh time with an 8-10lb bag or box filled with toys and books it becomes a power workout that Shawn T from PS90X would envy:-)
We are not complaining,just thankful!!!! The continuous overflow of love and support has been great and we are taking it ALL in.
These wonderful donations will affect the lives of so many children in a positive way.
Keep the overflow coming we love and appreciate each and every donation we receive!!!!
Much love,we will talk soon.

This is such an exciting week for us. The official launch of our 2nd annual Toy and Book drive will be on the 20th. We are so excited!!!!
On Wednesday of last week we received a large box of donations. We thanked our donors,added it to the trunk and continued making our rounds. Last night I decided to open the box and I was pleasantly surprized!!!! Not only did it have a collection of books,we found toys; board games, stuffed animals, a doll and some new kid friendly mugs.
It was the box that kept on giving. Surprise!!!!!
Talk to you soon, walk good.

Every little bit helps, in Jamaica we say "one one cocoa full basket". So if you have one book or one toy to donate we will accept it.
