Canadian Hats Too!

We loved seeing the photos of the Hat Day that The King's School in Langley, Canada had in support of International Albinism Awareness Day last week! They looked really great and we are so happy that they did it too! We are looking forward to visiting Lakeview School in Mwanza when we get back and telling the kids there about the schools that are thinking of them and praying for them!

Hat Day in Canada!

Hat Day for Albinism Day

We did an assembly today at school for International Albinism Awareness Day today! We used lots of different hats (sunhats, winter hats, swimming hats, helmets ...) to show that we are all a bit like hats ... we are all different colours, shapes and sizes and all special with different things that we are good at! We can all remember how important it is to love one another and also pray for children that haven't been loved, like some of the children in Tanzania who have albinism. We encouraged people to do that.

 Here is a photo of me with my friends!




Loads of kids at school wore all kinds of hats today, it was really good! And other people have been wearing hats to remind people about Albinism Day too!

Happy Albinism Day for Saturday! Don't forget your hats!

It's International Albinism Day and CRAZY HATS!!!

I don't think you all know this, but the first World Albinism Day is coming up on Saturday, June 13th. This is a day where we can remember all the people with albinism (a condition where you have no pigment in your skin, and have weak eyesight) and are thankful for their lives. We are doing crazy hats to celebrate and remember the day! Also on Friday, June 12th, Mum, Louisa and I are going to do an assembly at our school explaining what albinism is, and the problems in Tanzania, watch a slideshow video and tell some of the stories we know of our friends in Lakeview School.
 
Crazy Hat Day
 
We and everyone else trying to help people with albinism want all the attacks and killing of people with albinism to stop, so there is this day in hope that as more people get to know of these huge problems, the more people will try to stop it, and all the attacks and killing will stop.
 
The reason we are going to wear hats and encourage other people to wear hats or funny sunglasses on this day, is because the people with albinism need to wear them, as their skin burns VERY easily from the sun, and they can get serious burns and skin cancer, and they need to keep their eyes from getting damaged. We know Maria, our friend in Mwanza, really didn't like wearing a hat. Other kids in Tanzania don't wear hats beacuse they don't need to. But WE do wear hats and Maria liked wearing Louisa's hat and now she wears it all the time!

As this is an international day, we hope that people all over the world will remember Albinism Day! We would love to see your crazy hats or sunglasses! So please email us or post on the Albinism Day Facebook page with your crazy hat photos and we will post them here on our blog! We hope lots of people remember!
