Au Pair’s International Pot-Luck and Raising funds for Autism

Ophelia’s Diary.

This was my last Au Pair activity in Philadelphia, also one of my favorite Au Pair meeting. We had an international Pot- Luck. As we had Au Pair from South Africa, Colombia, Ecuador, China, Mexico, Germany, Ukraine and El Salvador at the meeting, we tried food from 8 countries. The food was so delicious.

I feel so lucky we have Au Pairs from so many different countries. Different background makes us all unique. But on the other hand, we are similar as we are all caring Au Pairs from Go Au Pair!

After the Pot-Luck, we had an auction to raise funds for Autism. Please join our team on facebook. Every Au Pair brought some items which were wrapped in bags, then we all participated in the auction. the Au Pair Auction

Au Pair Annie was the auctioneer. The events went very well. We raised $220 totally. The participators got something they like as well.

Going Bowling for Fernanda’s Farewell Party

Ophelia’s Diary.

The best moment is having new Au Pairs  join us, the saddest moment is having close Au Pairs leaving us. On September 29th, Sunday afternoon, eight Au Pairs came to Fernanda’s Farewell Party. Fernanda is an Au Pair from Brazil, and she is going home next week.

We created a special T-shirt for Fernanda, that was a sweet moment for all of us. We are Au Pairs from different countries -Spain, El Salvador, Ecuador, China and Germany.

We wrote blessing words for Fernanda in Chinese, German, Spanish, Russian and English.IMG_20130929_165135

Then we went bowling together. For me and some other Au Pairs this was our first time bowling. Au Pair program gives us a lot of chances to explore variety new interesting things. We appreciate it a lot. Even thought this was my first time bowling, I knocked down all ten pins! I was so excited about it.

Everyone had a great time at Fernanda’s farewell party. We will miss her so much. Good luck Fernanda, we love you forever!  Also, wish new Au Pair Sandra has a great time in here with us!
