Costa Rica Christmas Gift Drive

Our 11th Annual Costa Rica Christmas Gift Drive is officially underway for the elementary schools of La Palma, Jicote, and Chirres!!! We are buying gifts for 202 children in a year when Costa Rica was already at record unemployment numbers before the pandemic, and this area was recently hit hard with flooding from Hurricane ETA. So I am EXTRA motivated to do all we can to help these children and their families have a happy holiday season! 
If you can donate $5, $10, $20 or any amount it will be greatly appreciated!!! We usually spend about $8 to $15 per gift and  100% of the donations go to the gifts, candy, wrapping etc.  As always I will create a video compilation of the children receiving their gifts and send it out to all donors and post it on social media.
Let me know if you have any questions and if you live in the area or will be here over the coming weeks we always can use a hand wrapping!
Thank you! God bless you and your families and have a Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday Season!
