Our trip to the Dominican is going to be even more special now!!! SO excited!

Recommended Posts

Chris and I have been trying to decide how we could give back to the Dominican as thanks for 'hosting' our wedding. It actually came to us by way of a knock on our door Sunday night.

 

We have decided to sponsor a little boy through World Vision. He is 5 and lives in Santo Domingo, and is the cutest little thing you have ever seen! We are so proud that we will be helping this little boy, and couldn't be happier!

 

We are going to try and arrange with World Vision to meet him when we are down there on the second week of our holiday. It's apparently pretty easy to arrange, and the kids are always very excited.

 

It's just $35 a month, less than one paycheque a year, and we are already getting such a good feeling for helping someone in need.

Deb that is so amazing. I never thought about doing something like that, but I will talk to DH about it tonight. I would love to sponsor a kid in Cuba. Like you said its a way to give back to the country. I love it. You are amazing people for doing this and I really hope you do get to meet him.

What a fabulous idea! I definitely want to look into doing something like this -- but unfortunately will have to wait until AFTER the wedding (or maybe shortly before we can start). But what a great notion! Congrats on having your heart in the right place!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
