Food packages for the families of Rancho Burica

Hi!

First of all, thank you so much for checking out our fundraiser! We know that everyone is struggling one way or another with the current situation, so we really appreciate it you taking the time to have a look at this. 

Some of you have visited Rancho Burica in the past years, and probably some of you not. It might be still on your travel list to visit this beautiful part of Costa Rica (if it's not, put it there fast!) or maybe you have not even heard of this place before. Rancho Burica can be found where the bad road ends and the good life begins. In Punta Banco to be exact. The town of Punta Banco depends entirely on tourism. While any normal year, any normal tourist season at Rancho Burica runs from December till August, this year it stopped in March due to COVID-19. 

Many of you have met our workers. You've enjoyed the food prepared by Xinia, Maureen, Karen, Yoveth and Gina. You've enjoyed the garden, kept so beautifully by Wilbert and Chinto. You probably joked around with Xinia or Karen. You might have taken a surf lesson with Harley or Wilmer, or maybe you went on a horseback riding tour with Wilbert to discover the beautiful surroundings. All of them have families, for which most of them are the main provider. With a lack of tourists in town, they are struggling in these times.

So what can you do to help out you might think? Donate! Any dollar counts, and will help us out to support our workers. We would like to take away a few worries in the upcoming months by offering them food packages. Food packages filled with nutritious foods, preferably locally sourced to also support the local businesses. 100% of your donations will be going directly into these food packages.

Even though the world seems to ease and open up a little bit, we believe this isn't far from over yet. With low season on our door step, our workers and their families will have little to no work most probably up to December and maybe even longer. With your help we can make life a little easier the upcoming months for our community. When donating isn't possible, we totally understand, but maybe sharing the message would be! 

We can't thank you enough for your support, any form of it! Hopefully we will be able to welcome you back here soon, so you can enjoy this magical place and its Pura Vida vibes. Stay safe and healthy!

Pura vida,

Marthe & Jonne
Rancho Burica
