Wow,RESCHEDULED!!! 10th Annual Baja Nomad Dia de Reyes Toy Drive, January 31st, 2016


We did it! 10 years in a row, consecutive, uninterrupted, one after another, consistent, successive and non stop. Never dreamed of it but here it is and we're very exited about it.
We plan to make it very special, I don't have all the details yet but will be posting as we get them. We hope many of you can help with toys, gifts and donations this special year. It will be on January 31ST th, 2016
A hole decade!

10 years!! Amazing.

We must really have helpers taking the gifts across the border this year, starting early. Maybe we should have a "take gifts across the border" parade?

We will be in the States for Christmas and count me in.

Thanks Blanca. I don't have the right location yet. I'm trying for a super easy to find place and one that is not out of the way for travelers.
I'll post it as soon as I know.

The support for this event over the years from members of this site has been incredible, and is a so greatly appreciated.

The announcement this year is a little later than in past years, and because of the planning, transportation, etc., which all needs to be done ahead of time, I believe there's the concern regarding "timing", etc.

While much (most) of the work is done ahead of time, it's always been something members here have been invited to come and participate with on the day of the toy distribution. Please consider joining us for that event on January 17th.

I also want to remind folks that wrapping paper and scotch tape are needed too, right fdt?

also, fdt, you might want to ask at the dentist's office I used last year if they can hold the presents for you again? They are all amazing there.
