Dear friends and family,
For those who are unaware, nearly 800 children are living in orphanages in Tijuana, Mexico, surviving on only basic needs to get by. This is so close to home, only 2.5 hours away from Los Angeles. On December 1st, I am going to visit an orphanage with 5 of my friends and family as well. While there, we will play with the children, bring arts, crafts and donated items to run the organage - such as basic household supplies. I am asking for your support in contributing to this incredible organization. By contributing and offering your support, you can help these children recieve a better education as well as support their future of succeeding in life.
I myself just learned about the orphanages, and immedietly I am compelled and determined to do everything in my power to support these children and allow them to experience a special holiday, one that we are so familiar with. Whether it's the change in weather, or decorating a Christmas tree, or any holiday for that matter, brings joy and happiness to those who are fortunate enough to experience it. Let's come together and make this Christmas something they will never forget!!
I would appreciate anything you can give - every little bit helps! Your donation is 100% tax deductible. All monies donated go to directly to Corazon de Vida which runs 14 orphanages in Baja, Mexico. The money fulfills 3 needs:
1. Food, shelter and clothes
2. Medical needs
3. Education: school fees, uniforms, supplies, etc.

BRINGING HOPE FOR THE ORPHANAGES OF BAJA

The children are asking for your help to put nutritious food and clean drinking water on their tables, help them pay for propane and electricity, provide medical, dental, education needs, and improve their quality of life.
Can you help the children?
Together we can make a difference. Please create an online pledge page either as an individual or team. Funds raised through this pledge campaign will help cover orphanage needs through the first quarter of 2013.
