For a clean Mahahual

$4,000 of $4,000 goal

Raised by 25 people in 3 months
We are raising money to purchase and provide every house in the casitas of Mahahual, Mexico  with a trash can.  We believe this would help to keep the streets clean.  We are a small community of concerned people who want to make a difference and show by example.  Please help us reach our  goal. We have been working every Sunday to clean streets and educate people about the health and environmental dangers of trash littering our street.  Your support is greatly appreciated.  SUPER. WE HAVE REACHED OUR GOAL!  THANK YOU!!!  We continue to collect funds. Not sure if this campaign allows us to go over the goal amount but we continue to clean every Sunday and will continue to evaluate what is needed to maintain a clean Mahahual.

UPDATE. 16 February, 2019. We continued this week on our mission to bring trash cans to every house in the casitas. We received 48 more cans and took the time to attach nylon cord to the lids and burn the connections so they will not be lost. We wrote addresses on each can and lid with permanent paint markers. To date we have 80 cans purchased and assigned. We have ordered 120 more cans and they will be arriving in about 2 weeks. Our mission is seeing many happy people in Mahahual who understand the importance of a clean environment. Our goal was 200 cans, which is in the process of completion. Thanks to all of you for your support. All of this would not have been possible without your continued trust and faith in our mission. It has been a lot of work but the rewards are seeing an improved Mahahual. Even though our GoFundMe goal is reached, we are continuing to collect cash donations from local people and after the 200 cans, we will decide if we need more or we will turn our sights onto a new campaign. Perhaps a desperately needed trash truck, or ............



ACTUALIZAR. 16 de febrero de 2019. Continuamos esta semana en nuestra misión de llevar botes de basura a cada casa en las casitas. Recibimos 48 latas más y nos tomamos el tiempo de colocar el cordón de nylon en las tapas y quemar las conexiones para que no se pierdan. Escribimos direcciones en cada lata y tapa con marcadores de pintura permanentes. Hasta la fecha tenemos 80 latas compradas y asignadas. Hemos pedido 120 latas más y llegarán en aproximadamente 2 semanas. Nuestra misión es ver a muchas personas felices en Mahahual que entienden la importancia de un ambiente limpio. Nuestro objetivo era 200 latas, que está en proceso de finalización. Gracias a todos por su apoyo! Todo esto no hubiera sido posible sin su continua confianza y fe en nuestra misión. Ha sido mucho trabajo, pero las recompensas están viendo un Mahahual mejorado. A pesar de que se ha alcanzado nuestro objetivo GoFundMe, continuamos recolectando donaciones en efectivo de la población local y después de las 200 latas, decidiremos si necesitamos más o dirigiremos nuestra mirada hacia una nueva campaña. Tal vez un camión de basura desesperadamente necesitado, o ............

Update February 7, 2019. Today a miracle happened in Mahahual, Mexico. Really. We had the privilege of having a group of 65 volunteers off a cruise ship from a company called LGCY. They make solar panels. They donated their time to help clean the Casitas. You all know we have been cleaning every Sunday but the amount of trash was too much for us to do alone. So with many hands, not only from LGCY but many local hands, we have a much cleaner town. It truly was amazing. It feels good. This modern day Miracle should make us happy. Well of course it does, but it doesn’t end there. When this group learned of our mission to provide every house in the casitas with a trash can, they donated $3000usd to our campaign. Can you believe it. Our seed has been planted and growing nicely. Our mission to lead by example to create a healthy environment by Reducing our trash, Recycling and Reusing. It is making a difference. We are $95 away from our total goal so if anyone was thinking about donating today might be a good day. Help us reach our total goal. Our many thanks to not only those who have donated money but also those locals who have donated time, tools, pesos, water and their labor of love. Once this goal is reached, we will consider a new campaign to perhaps buy a reliable trash truck. We can do this. Nothing is impossible.

Update February 7, 2019. Today a miracle happened in Mahahual, Mexico. Really. We were supported by 65 volunteers off a cruise ship from a group called LGCY. Their company produces solar panels. We had a massive cleaning campaign in the casitas. Even though we have been cleaning every Sunday, there was always more than our group to do alone. So a blessing, a modern day miracle happened today. We have a super clean town now thanks to them and all the local people who came and supported with labors of love. So we should be happy. Of course, but the Miracle doesn’t stop there. After hearing our mission to supply every house in the casitas with a trash can, they donated $3000 usd to our GoFundMe campaign. We could hardly believe it. Now the seed which was planted is growing nicely. We are $95 usd away from our goal. The trash cans have been ordered and I invite anyone who was thinking of donating to this campaign to help us reach this total goal today. Once we have achieved this goal, we will consider a new campaign to purchase a garbage truck. Why not? We certainly need it. Thanks for all your donations, not just of money but, All those locally who have donated pesos, bags, water, tools. You all know who you are. My heart felt thanks.

UPDATE February 3, 2019. This Sunday we had 19 volunteers. We split into 2 groups and tackled the main port road and Av Mangalar. The port road group was able to do parts of Issac and Cacao streets. These 2 streets had not been done before. We didn’t gather as much trash as previous clean ups but still a tremendous amount of trash. It is still evident that continued work on education needs to be done. We witnessed someone approaching the big green bins and dumping loose trash into the bin. The trash men have no way to lift and dump these bins so the trash in them needs to be in bags; a teaching moment. To date, we have handed out 32 trash cans and the funds have allowed us to order 48 more, which will be coming mid February. It’s a slow process but forward we go thanks to all of your donations. Please keep sharing our cause and if you know any lottery winners, we could use a better trash truck. Thursday, February 7, we have a group of 65 volunteers coming for a “Day of Service” to help clean the casitas. Mahahual should sparkle.

ACTUALIZACIÓN 3 de febrero de 2019. Este domingo tuvimos 19 voluntarios. Nos dividimos en 2 grupos y abordamos la carretera principal del puerto y Av Mangalar. El grupo de carreteras portuarias pudo hacer partes de las calles Issac y Cacao. Estas 2 calles no se habían hecho antes. No recolectamos tanta basura como las limpiezas anteriores, pero aún así una cantidad tremenda de basura. Todavía es evidente que se debe hacer un trabajo continuo en la educación. Fuimos testigos de que alguien se acercaba a los grandes contenedores verdes y arrojaba basura al contenedor. Los hombres de la basura no tienen forma de levantar y tirar estos contenedores, por lo que la basura debe estar en bolsas; Un momento de enseñanza. Hasta la fecha, hemos entregado 32 botes de basura y los fondos nos han permitido ordenar 48 más, que se realizarán a mediados de febrero. Es un proceso lento, pero seguimos adelante gracias a todas sus donaciones. Por favor, siga compartiendo nuestra causa y si conoce algún ganador de lotería, podríamos usar un mejor camión de basura.
