“When I arrived at the orphanage I didn’t really know what to expect from the kids, but when we met and exchanged names they seemed nervous just like I was. As we moved on from meeting the children, Shane Hanson encouraged the kids to get active while doing the warm up drills. Most of the kids responded within a couple minutes after realizing that Mr. Hanson and his crew (which I participated in) were there to just have fun and enjoy playing the game of basketball. I particularly enjoyed watching the kids forget about their problems and run around the court with nothing on their mind except for having fun. This world is unpredictable and unfair, especially to these young kids. That’s why I think PAI is such a great organization to invest in, because that couple of hours for a kid to actually FORGET and not have it near their minds of all the problems they face, can be a life saver. Overall the experience was outstanding and out of this world! The feeling of helping others in this organization is something indescribable.”
