8th Annual Baja Nomad Dia de Reyes Toy Drive. January 19, 2014


Here we go again, the 8th year of providing toys for some of the less fortunate children in Baja California, thanks to the support of great people like the BajaNomads.
The 8th Annual Baja Nomad Dia de Reyes Toy drive will be on January 19th.
here are links to past events for those who would like to know a bit more of what goes on with this event.

7th Toy Drive, http://forums.bajanomad.com/viewthread.php?tid=64381#pid7854...

Last years event was huge, over 1,200 children. There are so many children that don't receive gifts for neither Christmas or Dia de Reyes that we would like to be able to provide for them all, unfortunately we must limit the number of children that are recipients for this event as it is not like all others we have experienced wer random toys are just handed to random kids, no, we get the name and age of each and every child, and his or her gift is gift wrapped and personalized with his/her name. There are a few that because of size are not totally wrapped (like bikes or really big stuffed teddy bears ) but they all have the name of a specific child.
Food, drinks and transportation are provided for all the kids and their accompanying adults and we would love for you to join us for this event as it is something worth experiencing.





Again our good friends at BajaBound Insurance are allowing us to use their address as drop off location of were gifts or donations can be sent

The information is:
Toy Drive c/o Baja Bound Insurance Services, Inc.
750 11th Avenue #101
San Diego, CA 92101
Phone (619) 702-4292

If you would like to donate toys or food but do not know what to get or can not send it, there is a Paypal account, fernando@vivabajacalifornia.com

I sure hope more of you can join us this year and for that Mexicoach is once again providing free transportation.

Children's ages range from 4 to 15, both boys and girls. We don't request expensive toys or gifts, what is always a big hit are soccer, basket and volley balls, bikes, toy trucks and cars and of course dolls.
I'll have more information as it becomes available but we'd like to start with the toy collection. We are a couple of days short of 2 months from the event.

Once again, thank you so so much in advance for helping to make this event possible. De antemano, muchisisisimas gracias.
Fernando Garcia y familia.

Really appreciative of both BajaBound Insurance and Mexicoach for their support in this event. The logistical support they supply is just so incredibly HUGE!

And that's under-stating it a bit.

Is the location for the party known?
Such a wonderful event - so many happy smiles.
And I know it's 2 months away, but is Bajabound ready to accept donations? I have some toys that are taking up closet space!
