Alpacas! Operation Kid-to-Kid
We’re raising money to help families in need in Ecuador
“South America is home to the Andes mountains – the longest mountain range in the world that also has some of the highest peaks in the world! It’s not easy to live in the mountains so high, but people living in the Andes of Ecuador have figured out some amazing ways to make mountain life work.
A big help comes from some four-leged, fluffy pals – alpacas. Alpacas are sort of like llamas, but they have fluffy, strong fleece that gives them some funny hairdos sometimes. An alpaca’s fleece can be shaved off and give a family up to 10 pounds of warm fleece a year!
The fleece is easy to clean and spin into yarn for making hats, shirts, mittens, and so much more to keep people warm and dry in the high mountains.
Things made from alpaca fleece are sold in markets to make money for families to buy other important things they need, like food, stuff for school, repairs on their homes, and doctor visits.
There’s even more good alpacas can do for families that we’ll dig into during our games this week. Every $10 we collect for Operation Kid-to-Kid will buy an alpaca for a family who needs one in Ecuador. You can invite your entire family to help!”
