Yes Blanca, you are so right, we need lots and lots of wrapping paper and tape, we have none left over from last year.

As for the drop off location in Tijuana, I'm still working on that but should now soon. The good people at Dr Samuel Velazquez's dental office are pretty busy as you can remember and they have limited space. Wait just a little for me as I'm trying to get someone.

As I mentioned on the beginning of this thread, this year's event is very exiting for us because it is the 10 year we've done it, BIG WOW, and it's all because of all you wonderful people that provide the donations, big or small.
Thru ought these past 10 years, some of you have joined us on the day of the event and if you have you now it's a wonderful experience. Some of you have wanted to come along but haven't, so it is our most sincere wish that many of you join us on January 17 for this 10th year event. It promises to be a great day, so save the date, plan on coming down and experiencing the Baja Nomad Dia de Reyes Toy Drive, there is transportation, food, lots of happy children and many hugs and kisses.
Gracias,
Fernando Garcia y familia

Just a friendly reminder that Bajabound Insurance has moved. For the past several years they have been so kind as to be the official drop off location in San Diego for donations for the Toy Drive, they go far and beyond with this and we are very grateful.
They used to be on 11th ave. But not anymore, the new information / address is as follows:

Toy Drive c/o BajaBound Insurance Services, Inc.
815 J St #303
San Diego, CA 92101
Phone (619) 702-4292

Toysrus has a deal section, here is the link.
Please help us by sending your donations as soon as you can because one of the most difficult things about making this event a success is the smuggling of the toys into México.
Thank you,

http://www.toysrus.com/shop/index.jsp?categoryId=3395098#vie...

If you don't know what to get, we also have a Paypal account for donations,

fernando@vivabajacalifornia.com

But again even if we buy it for you, we still have to smuggle it across.
Gracias

Looks like it :?:

We appreciate all the help we can get and smuggling toys is one of the best ways to help just as long as it's NOT at the dentist's office as I mentioned back on dec-8

Thank you, as I mentioned before it will be a very easy to find location or locations.
And since we started this 10 years ago, that's the idea, do it for Dia de Reyes or after so people can take advantage of all the after Christmas sales, or leftover toys and so on.

BTW those toys Blanca picked up are ones that arrived late last year, it's about 10 of them that have been at Bajabound waiting for almost a year. We have not received any new toys for this event.

Saludos
Fernando

Please, if you have lots of wrapping paper left over, don't throw it away, we need lots of it, along with tape and toys of all kinds. Now is the time, Christmas is over and all kinds of toys and gifts are on sale, on clearance, remarkably reduced, specially priced
Also if you can't send toys, there is a paypal account were you can send your donations.
