Secret Santa for Children - Canica de Oaxaca

Happy Holidays, Everyone!

Kate here! As many of you know, I have been living in Oaxaca, Mexico for a few months now. Fate brought me to this wonderful organization, CANICA de Oaxaca, which provides learning, meals, and other services to children living on the street in Oaxaca City.

Opening a present from Santa Claus is such a special part of childhood. It brings wonder and joy! During these difficult times, I don't want any of these families to have to explain to their kids why Santa didn't bring them a present this year. 

These kids all deserve to be on Santa's good list! With the help of the NGO manager, Alejandro, I have a "letter to Santa" from all 77 children CANICA de Oaxaca serves, and I intend to make sure every one of these kids gets the ball, backpack, or shoes they asked for. Unfortunately, I don't think Santa will be able to bring Maria a baby brother! :-D


If you have the resources, we would be so grateful for a donation in any amount. 100% of the funds raised will be allocated to purchasing a Santa present for every child and funding the campaign to provide tablets for the kids to keep learning while schools are closed.

You can learn more about the organization by visiting their Facebook page (english)

OR their website (spanish):

Thank you all - Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
