Yesterday, with the help of some many caring people, we posted the last of 155 boxes of toys, formula and medical supplies bound for the project.
The generosity of people from Drumheller and points beyond never ceases to amaze me. This year we are shipping almost 70 boxes more than last year. A total over 2 tons will be brightening the faces of children who seldom have much to be happy about. For this I am so grateful, thank you all.
Shipping costs were just under $9,000 a number that surprised everyone double last year, but makes sense given the number of parcels. We collected about $7200. We will continue to try and find the short fall somewhere. When we have satisfied the shortfall we will begin to collect to build up the stock of formula which is what saves the babies.
Thank you all for your generosity and love…we will continue to make a difference a world away, saving babies and honoring my daughter.
I love you all.

My friends it is that time of the year.
For the past 5 years since Morgan’s death and the beginning of the Morgan Jayne Project we have made Christmas for children who daily wonder if they will have a meal, who are the head of a household at the age of 10, who live with indescribable poverty and who are or have someone in their family who have HIV or AIDS. For one day, thanks to your generosity, these children have for one day, the chance to just be a kid. Something we take so much for granted.
For you past help and support, thank you. You have made miracles happen.
We are looking to make it happen again this year. I have attached the Christmas Miracle list. Please remember for every child on this list there are 3 more watching in wonder over the fence. We can help them as well so the list can grow to match your generosity.
We strive to fill the list but as important is monies to cover shipping. Every small box costs us about $35-$40 to ship to Florida where it is taken by boat to the project. To save lives formula is always welcome. If you want to through a can along with your shipment that would just rock our world.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
I am forever grateful for your generosity, support and encouragement that drives me daily to caring on with this legacy in Morgan’s name.
Thank you and Merry Christmas.
Thank you for helping a Christmas miracle happen for the children of Roatan. These are children in our AIDS program who, either their parents or they, are living with AIDS. As such, their lives are filled with illness, discrimination and poverty. They have come into my office so I can write to Santa for them and ask for a little Christmas Miracle.
A few notes: Please don’t wrap the gifts, as customs must go through everything. If they are wrapped that takes hours of unwrapping during which the paper is destroyed and we have a hard time keeping straight whose gift is whose. You may put it in a plastic bag or in an unsealed gift bag, please put the child’s name clearly on the bag so we know who it belongs to.
Please don’t send: 1. Toy guns or weapons of any kind. We are trying to heavily discourage violence on this island where almost all males over 16 carry weapons, yes that includes water pistols.
2. Loose candy. If you send candy or foodstuffs please put it in a zip lock bag or plastic container so rats and bugs and heat doesn’t melt it all over the gifts.
3. Presents that take batteries without the batteries. Many of our families can barely afford to feed their children; batteries are out of the question even though they are available here to buy.
Please feel free to send! 1. Food stuffs such as powdered milk, peanut butter, canned fish or meat, packaged or jarred nuts or raisins, Kraft dinner, muffin or cake mix, baby cereal or formula.
2. Extra gifts for children we m may have missed as well as kids who will join the program before Christmas.
3. Towels, perfume or lotions powdered milk, peanut butter etc for the moms.
4.Electronic games that are used, if your child has an outdated video game he/she no longer plays it will be welcomed by our kids here as long as it works and you can send game cartridges as well. Playstations, Gameboys etc. are the most coveted items of all here. We put these and give them out for birthdays or special events.
5. Office supplies for our office, in particular HP printer cartridges 21, 22 and number 27.
6. School supplies, backpacks, notebooks, pencils, pens etc, black school shoes required for boys or girls of all sizes and white socks.
If you live aways away from Drumheller and would like to help by shipping your own Christmas Miracle donations you can send them to:
Fundacion Sol C/O Val Nelson 10025 – 116 Way Medley, Florida 33178
We use Canada post as they are “in bond customs type shipping” and will give you the least problem getting the items across the border. From the address above a ship will take our precious shipment directly to the island. The wording is important as all donations fall under a special import license, please word your shipping label as above.
If you would like to make a monetary donation please make it out to The Dawn Land Children’s Foundation Re: The Morgan Jayne Project Christmas Miracle on the Memo Line… send it to:

A young mother in Roatan holds up a sign with a simple message, “Thank you for saving his life.”
An image of the woman is part of a slide show that Valerie Nelson presented to students at St. Anthony’s School. Nelson is the director of Famillias Saludables, the agency that administers the Morgan Jayne Project in Roatan.
She explains the woman holding the sign learned that Nelson would be travelling to Drumheller, and wanted to share a message with the people of Drumheller. Her message was simple. “Thank you for saving his life.”
Nelson was in town over the weekend with the goal to thank the people of Drumheller for their support of the Morgan Jayne Project, which currently provides about half of the infant formula given to the Children of HIV infected mothers on the impoverished Island, to curb the spread of AIDS.
Part of this was taking in the Red Eye Memorial Ball tournament, which is held in memory of Morgan Jayne and Chris Bolin, and splits the proceeds between the two causes.
Nelson said the Saturday night at the ball tournament coincided with Children’s Day in Honduras. It is like Mother’s Day, only on Children’s day, the kids are showered with generosity.
“I was out there thinking how appropriate it was that while it was Children’s Day in Honduras, I was in Drumheller with people who have saved so many of the kids. So many of our kids wouldn’t be celebrating Children’s Day if it wasn’t because of the project,” said Nelson.
“It really was overwhelming to me because the Morgan Jayne Project has made such a big impact, we couldn’t survive without it.” “These people were out there playing ball, and serving hamburgers. They have never been to Roatan, maybe not even know where Honduras is… and yet they do it to save children they don’t know, and it is such a testimony to the people.”
The bread and butter of the Morgan Jayne Project is providing formula, and it has literally saved lives. Last year Nelson was going over her books at the clinic, and it occurred to her that they have achieved 100 per cent success in curbing mother-to-child transmission of AIDS.
The Morgan Jayne Project has moved beyond providing formula. The Morgan Jayne Infant Care Center has been up and running for two years, and was part of the reason Famillias Saludables was able to achieve zero mother-to-child transmission. The project has supported the school, provide medicine and every year helps to fill the Christmas wish list.
“The Christmas program give the kids their childhood back, so what more could you want?” said Nelson.
Nelson made it a goal on her brief visit to Drumheller to show her appreciation to as many people in the valley that have supported the project. Part of this was visiting the student body at St. Anthony’s, visiting the Rotary Club and doing a public presentation at the new Elim Pentecostal Tabernacle at the former Central School.
While there have been some great successes, the struggle continues. Nelson said the economy has hit Roatan hard, and similarity Famillias Saludables. Many of their American donors have not been able to keep up support. The project has adapted by alternating months to have power, and can only guarantee six months of formula to the mothers.
“We used to guarantee 12 months, but the last couple months have been stressful, so we dropped it to six months. Six months is all they need to avoid the transmission, but we always have given them 12 months to fatten them up and keep them healthy.”
One of the messages she brought to students and supporters beyond the project is demonstrating how every person can make a difference by their actions. The Morgan Jayne Project has given children a new chance at life.

We have exciting news from The Morgan Jayne Project!Valerie Nelson, the administrator of the project in Roatan will be in Drumheller!
Valerie will be helping us at the Red Eye Memorial on Saturday September 10 and 11th. If you would like to come and meet her come on out to the Hoo Doo Campground and grab a burger or hot dog, watch a bit of great slo-pitch. All proceeds are split between The Chris Bolin Memorial Fund and The Morgan Jayne Project. Valerie would like to be able to thank each and everyone of you for your undying support for the babies.
We are very short of volunteers to cook if you can lend a hand….we sure would appreciate it. All cooking spots are open…lots of fun, with really flexible hours.
In the evening of September 12, (Monday) Valerie will be doing a presentation on the project and AIDS and again would really like the chance to meet you. It will be held at the Elim Pentecostal Church (the old central school) at 7:00 p.m.
If you have the evening free please attend. I can definitely attest to life changing stories and events that are a part of Valerie’s everyday life helping those desperately poor and sick who would otherwise die without her never ending efforts.
Please plan to attend I would love the chance to say thanks along with Valerie.
We need your help….”babies die waiting”
