Build a Bridge not a Wall, Juan's story
Organized by: Brinco Suave
I met Juan 10 years ago. He and his wife and two small children sold fresh fish tacos in their front yard at the time. Hard times and bad luck forced them to close the taco stand. Juan and his wife split up and now Juan is a single parent of a 12 and 17 year old. In 2015, Juan got a tourist visa to visit America. He was staying with mutual friends on an organic vegetable farm in Bloomfield, California. My girlfriend Tempestt and I went to visit him. Juan missed his kids and hometown, but was tempted to stay in America and work like a dog and send his money back to his children. We made a deal with Juan to meet him back in Mexico to help them open Cafe Las Tunas, a farm to table family style restaurant and bar. Tempestt and I have been in Baja Mexico for the past 2 months helping Juan with everything in order to open up a kick ass, fresh fish taco restaurant. Well, with all restaurant opening ( even in Mexico), money comes first. Juan has no money and we have very little money. In order for us to open late 2015 we need to raise $25,000 in capital. Tempestt and I agree to match donations 1 for 1 up to $12,500. If you have any questions prior to donating, feel free to ask.
