Escapada Children’s Fund Update

The Escapada Children's Fund was established in September 2014 to help children near our factory in Indonesia. The fund originally offered support and supplies for two girls who lived in the same neighborhood as the factory, but the fund has grown so much since then! It now provides funding for more than 20 children in two local orphanages, in addition to those two original girls. Our production manager recently took some of the children on a fun day trip to the pool, and we couldn't resist sharing the photos with you!

{What's a pool day without some fun games?}

Andrew, our production manager in Indonesia, collaborated with the Sunan Hotel to give orphanages' children a day of fun in the sun. Many of them had never been to a pool or hotel like this before, so this field trip was extra exciting. They had so much fun swimming in the water, playing games, and relaxing at the pool!

After their day at the pool, Andrew and the kids headed to the hotel's restaurant for lunch. The group loved getting a special meal and seeing the beautiful hotel! Andrew told us that at first some of the guests were confused about the sudden influx of children at the pool and restaurant, but soon the kids' happiness was contagious and everyone at the hotel was having fun. How could you say "no" to those smiling faces?

{Yum!}

We're so grateful to be a part of these children's lives and even more grateful that Andrew has been able to give them new opportunities and experiences like this one.
