Orphaned Children of Baja Mexico

$3,260 of $4,000 goal

Raised by 59 people in 76 months

Most of us want to do something that give us a sense of purpose or truly matters to someone we are helping. With life's pressures, responsibilities and our own daily challenges it is tough sometimes to think of others or to even have the time to contribute on a larger scale. Many get overwhelmed and believe whatever they do won't be significant enough which can be furthest from the truth. What if I told you that every dollar counts since it takes only $2 to buy 3 hot meals and few hrs of your time on Saturday can mean the world to an orphaned or abandoned child in Baja Mexico? Would you get involved?

What do we do:
We donate our time, professional expertise, supplies and raised money to help feed and provide basic necessities as well as cover orphanage needs such as development of facilities, plumbing fixes, installation of reverse osmosis water filtration systems with our partners. Are you a plumber, electrician, builder? or want to help us spread the word across online media? there's always something to do...it's very easy to get involved on whatever level you like! Ask how.

$2 feeds an orphaned child 3 hot meals, each day.
We used to collect supplies and other donations but due to changes at the border with what we can bring, the easiest and most cost effective way is to collect funds and let the orphanages buy their supplies down there...cheaper too which means they can get more for your money.

If you can't join us on the monthly bus trips lead by a great foundation we partner up with to spend a day with the kids, or go with us on our private trips, you can help us by donating funds and sharing our posts to ask your friends and family to get involved.

Why does this matter?:
Mexico does not have a foster care system or subsidized program to support neglected, abused or abandoned children. There is also no welfare system, or financial assistance from the government...the only way to support children in need is through a charitable donations, getting involved through organizations that already help (most from US), churches or going down there directly. These kids are only few minutes from the border, trapped in the cycle of poverty, forgotten by most and helped by few. No child should feel unwanted or left behind.

"Being adopted at an early age has simply changed the course of my entire life and inspired my desire to help other orphaned kids realize their potential. No child's future should be negatively impacted by the environment they grew up in." ~ Marzena Kmiecik ( www.marzenakmiecik.com)

Pontus Thanks! for thinking about our trip to El Faro this Sun & showing your support! 100% of these donations (minus paypal fee) will be donated for food, bills & medical expenses as Mexico does not have gov. programs & doesn't provide ANY support to the orphanages. Every penny counts.
