A 3000-Pound Salvadorean Christmas

Over Christmas Airline Ambassadors turned my double layover into El Salvador into an amazing holiday experience providing 3,000 lbs of aid for the country's recent flood victims.

Thanks to Lory Oppenheimer for arranging the shipping of the aid through TACA, Dave and I delivered the aid to the new First Lady’s office and launched an AAI partnership with her with a press conference at the Presidential Palace.

On Christmas Day our flight crew helped deliver toys and gifts to two orphanages: the Jardin de Amor (for HIV kids) and the Hogar Infantil. All the children received presents.

A thousand thanks for the donation of teddy bears from the Desert Aids Project, toys from Ana Montano, and CROCS shoes and other gifts from the flight attendants on our American Airlines crew.

What better way to spend Christmas!
