The 2 Little Orphans - Nico & Shala

Little Nico, 5 years old and Shalaa 7,  lost both of their parents, our friends, this past Sunday, June 11th, 2017.   At this time, the kids are being cared by their 68 year old grandma in Tijuana, Mexico.  A group of mothers and I want to help raise money for the kid's immediate and near future needs - food, clothing,  
medical,  physiological services and anything else needed to care for them and help grandma.

This drastic and unexpected loss of their parents has left the kids, family and friends with great sadness and concerns about the future of these beautiful children.   Shalaa had just brought home a medal for getting 3rd place in a Spelling Bee contest; she participated with 600 other children. This picture shows their great smiles after having received the award just 2 weeks ago. Shalaa is a bright student and Nico is just a funny little guy!  

I would like to raise the money inmediately.  Please let me know if you are interested to help in any other manner; any assistance is appreciated.  

When donating please remember this account is in US DOLLARS.  

Do not hand out cash to anyone who may claim to be helping with this campaign. 

PS- I personally know the kids as Shalaa attends school with my daughter and as soon as the campaign concludes, I will deposit the monies into a Savings Account for their grandmother.  

God bless you all!
