THE BEGINNINGS OF THE FOUNDATION
Hello! I introduce myself, my name is Vivi Barguil Bechara, I'm from Montería, Córdoba. I Am married and the best gift they made me from the sky was to have been mom. I have Always been related to philanthropy, on the part of my family, especially on the side of my mother Zonia, she was the one who instilled me the love for giving and helping. Today I am a woman made because I do what I like and makes me feel happy the smile of the children to whom the Foundation To the wheel of bread and cinnamon has helped in their lives.
When I was asked to write a column for the Rueda wheel Foundation, the first thing that came To my mind was to start a recount from the first day I thought of creating it.
First, I must tell you that what came to mind and heart was that this Foundation was a way of giving back to God everything he has given me. Once that is defined, Dunk to call my friends to support me in this fascinating madness that is to help and bring joy to vulnerable children.
In January 2013, my head begins to think of the way to start, the first thing was to think of a name, and decided to be called with my surnames, and so I started the Foundation Barguil Bechara. I Had been working on it for a month, when my sisters met me and they made me see that it was better to change my name, for a more sonorous one and to relate more to the children.
The idea was hovering in my mind and was very funny, because I had gone to talk with the designer Ángel Sánchez to donate a parade to launch the Foundation, so one afternoon in my house we started thinking and I thought to look for lullabies and so was born N Ombre of "Foundation With the wheel of bread and cinnamon". Quickly, we did a mini survey with friends, family and children, and it was a hit, all unanimously we got a yes, already named and with designer, we started the strategy to go out and look for donations from companies and the media to promote the parade and Launch.
Those weeks were crazy, our days began Super early, we had appointments everywhere, we learned, we make mistakes, Laught and sometimes I got a tear, when your friends who thought you were going to support you did not even pass the phone. They Are The teachings that are left to one in the heart and are the obstacles to learn to jump.
The launch date had been decided by May 2, we had already got site for it, we had all the production, but making a fashion show was not so easy, we needed people who could sew, Vestieres, and models, which by the way, the designer Asking that little men special features so we talked to a model agency. I share that two days before the casting with the designer we had not a single model, but by work and grace of the sky, on May 1st came more than eighty girls to do the test.
Finally, after having Treballat more than three months, the day came, I Want to tell you that there was no time to rehearse the parade, when Angel wanted to do it, the attendants were arriving and we had to hide the models. That night rained, but the people lawbot and the room was RCN. With happiness I tell you that it was a total success, it was the first time I had to say a speech to more than three hundred people and I confess that after all that "Odyssey", that same night I knew where and what I wanted to work: in the Foundation To the wheel of Bread and Cinnamon , to transform the lives of those most vulnerable children in the city of Montería and in a future of the entire Caribbean region and so get up every day with that satisfaction throughout my body when the launch event ended.
