We're helping the kids again this year. We have 750 kids who need heat for water and warm beds at night, food and medical care, transportation to school and clean drinking water!!
Will you help us to meet our goal?
Thanks in advance for all those continuing supporters who always dig deep every year. The CDV board of directors has made it possible for all of your money to go directly to kids. This is the best way you will find this year to help - don't miss the opportunity.
A little about our cause... There are over 6,000 children on the streets in Baja and another 3,000 in some 50 orphanages. The orphanages that exist are mainly families who have taken in children off the street without any funding from anyone.
Once an orphanage is established, the federal offices for orphanage control decide whether children can be placed there. If the family is serious about helping, they can take on additional children. Soon the financial burden outweighs their meager attempts to raise funds locally. Children have very little food, no fresh or hot water, and often no transportation to school.
With as little as $62.50 per month, a child can have a place to sleep, fresh water to drink (river water has worms that cause a variety of illnesses) and hot water to bathe. With the basics in place, children can then go to school.
Many things become possible when we provide for the basic needs of the children. CDV strives to fund it's operations thru board member contributions so that it maximizes funding to the children. it's goal is for 100% of donations to go to kids. If you wish to support the kids, please make a donation, or even better, pledge your monthly support. If you wish to help out more and leverage your donations to bring in more donors, consider being a member of our board.
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.
Click on "Create Your Own Fundraising Page" link to the right to get started. Create teams with family, friends, co-workers, fellow students and encourage others to join your team. Once your page is created, send your link to everyone in your address book and share on Facebook and Twitter.
The 2012 Holiday Pledge Campaign will end on December 31 so please contribute even a small amount to help. This has been an incredibly difficult year for the children and they need us today.
