Dear Friends and Family,
On December 1st, my daughter & I will return to the orphanages in Tijuana where homeless children rely on the generosity of others to receive the most basic needs to live & thrive.
We’ll deliver supplies, serve lunch, play, read, dance, laugh and do arts/crafts with the kids (and in Sam's case, get teased all day by mischievous little boys!).
The first time we visited, I wasn't sure what to expect, but discovered beautiful souls who've dedicated their lives to running these orphanages; and found happy, well behaved children who have very little in material possessions yet were filled with joy & gratitude for everything they do have. So many sweet expectant faces greet you as you step off the bus, all with dreams and aspirations just like any other child. At the end of the day, these same children wrap their arms around you and give you the biggest heartfelt hugs you could ever hold in your heart.
Please take a look at this well run organization "Corazon De Vida" (Heart of Life) which supports 800 children in Baja, Mexico. It was founded by Hilda Pacheco-Taylor, who grew up in one of the orphanages. Her life's work is to support & educate these children and to help end the cyle of homelessness.

I hope you will support my efforts and contribute to this incredible organization - every little bit helps! By donating, you will help these children receive basic human needs and the promise of an education. Your donation is 100% tax deductible and all monies go directly to Corazon de Vida to help run 14 orphanages.
Thanks for supporting a beautiful cause! Diann :)
