BECOME ONE OF SANTA’S HELPERS!
This season we extend the holiday cheer to our community. For a little effort, you can enlighten the spirits of children that expect presents from the “Three Magic Kings” each year, one of the fondest traditions for kids in Mexico. The donations will be presented to the children supported by Corazón y Vida Maya of different rural Mayan communities.
Suggested items to pack include:
Clothes for children ages 6 – 12.
Light sweaters and sweat pants.
Gifts donated through this program will be presented on Día de Reyes-Three Kings Day, January 6, 2014.
Through its community centers, Save the Children works with economically and socially deprived children providing a safe environment for them to be in while parents are still at work. Through recreational, cultural, athletic and educational activities, they seek to improve the quality of life of children ages 6 to 12 years old. Save The Children is part of the International Save the Children Alliance, an organization represented in over 125 countries that currently helps 1,000 children in Quintana Roo, Mexico.

Playa Animal Rescue is dedicated to rescuing and rehabilitating injured and abandoned dogs, and ultimately finding them permanent loving homes. Unfortunately, strays are easily seen in all streets of Mexico. Their clinic is the process of being built, and they need help finishing it. Aside from rescuing strays, Playa Animal Rescue's dream is to build a low cost clinic for the pets of local people who have fewer resources, hence promoting health for the locals.
