Baja Nomad Dia de Reyes Toy Drive 2010





The 4th annual Baja Nomad Dia de Reyes Toy Drive will be held in Rosarito Beach at the Corona Plaza Hotel on January 10, 2010. We have adopted in the name of all of you Baja Nomads 257 needy children that if not for you all will not have a gift this holiday season. The list is a follows:
Ages 3-4 1 boy, 2 girls
Ages 5-6 3 boys 2 girls
Ages 7-8 30 boys, 20 girls
Ages 9-10 35 Boys, 30 girls
Ages 11-12 33 boys, 35 girls
Ages 13-14 20 boys, 20 girls and
Ages 14-15 12 boys and 14 girls

We have received a generous donation of 37 bycicles so we are only short a mere 220 gifts. We will have, the same as in past years tamales, frijoles and hot chocolate for all the children and of course the traditional Rosca de Reyes.
Times are tough, we know because it's the same everywere but we are confident that with God and your help we will be able to provide for these kids abundantly.
I am calling on all Rosarito area Nomads especialy so you can join us for this exciting event.
As every year some of you can not send a gift or find it easyer to make a donation, I am always hesitant with this because of ovoius reasons but this year we have more than double the children as before and there are always extra ones that show up and since it will be in a hotel in Rosarito, many if not all of them will be bused down there.
So with this in mind and since we don't have a tamale donor, we are requesting that if you can find it in your posibilities please send us your donations to a special Paypal account with the email toydrive2010@ultimatebaja.com

Just go to paypal.com once in go to "Send Money", click on "Send money online", a new window opens and there you paste " toydrive2010@ultimatebaja.com ", then your email, ammount and at the bottom go to Personal, then mark "Gift" and then a new window opens were you can use a credit card or your own Paypal.

Thank you very much and for those interested in mailing or dropping of a gift, it will be at the same location,

Glad to hear the donations line is up and running again this year, Fernando. It's nice to know that all my dinero can go to toys or other necessities for the celebration instead of to postage.

Yep these are stressful times financially for many, but I'll bet we each will get a Christmas present. Why not ask a loved one to make your present a donation to this toy drive. I've done that in the past with excellent results.... I awaken Christmas morning with the understanding that light has been brought into the life of a child - and that's all the gift I need.

Try it, amigos.... you might have the same experience as me.

I can't say were they are from exactly but they are not from one single area, they are from Blvd 2000 area, Tecate, Tijuana and only a few from Rosarito, that is why we will be busing them down there.

Moving the thread to Baja Events...

..and made a banner from Ferna's image - now placed on the bottom of each page in the forums that links to this thread.

Also, a "shorter" link:
http://tinyurl.com/BajaNomad-2010-DiaDeReyes

This year, it's a lot more kids. Please everyone, see what you can do to help us gain further visibility in your community with this. I appreciate your consideration.

PayPal is a great option!


it's secure, doesn't cost anything (to send, mark it as a gift!), it's easy and it'll make you and some needy kid(s) smile on Jan 10. :saint:

your gift will be on it's way in less than 5 minutes.

Just sent in my donation via PayPal. It looks like I will be going to Baja right around new years or so. Anyone in the NoCal area who wants me to take toys down to Ferna for them let me know via U2U and I'll send you my address or we can arrange to meet up.

to the coordinators of this wonderful event-

What would you prefer?

I can do a paypal of around $100 and you can purchase what is most needed or I can purchase some items that I think will be well received and send them to you.

My question is~ would you rather have a little cash to do some last minute....or even basic shopping?.... or some gifts for a specific "child profile"?

What is the best use of the dollars available?

Thank you to those working on the project for those who smile on that day............
