We are on a roll!
More than 150 homes were lost near Octavio Paz School
We have a ton of kids and their families who have lost everything to a tragic fire. We need your help. The people of Zihua and the local government have rallied with donations of clothing, personal hygiene products, food etc. They are being housed at the Zihuatanejo Auditorium behind Telmex until other arrangements can be made. Their lives have been torn apart, let’s show them once again what we are made of!
Por Los Ninos would like to provide uniforms, school shoes, backpacks etc. Your tax-deductible donation can be made through our website under the general fund. 100% of your donations will go to the kids. The photos below will break your heart.
The letter that tugged the most in my heart was from Axel which just wanted to have a belt to hold up his pants. If you would like to sponsor a child’s Christmas gift which in Mexico is celebrated on Kings Day the 6th of January. You can donate via the web to Carol’s Rice and Beans and Carol while happens to be in if Santa’s elves will make it happen.
Thank you so much SNAPPY LOGOS for your generous donation of merchandise in the value of 2,124 USD. for Sailfest 2019.
