Got room in your vehicle? donation request


If anyone is headed south, I am collecting school supplies for the family of 7 kids we help. With 5 kids in elementary school, we need lots of notebooks, copy paper, crayons. Please take some down if you have room. :)


A friend of mine buys all the uniforms which comes to US$500 for all - they need PE and regular unifroms, shoes and socks, a tie and school jackets.

The Mom (Tidiana) tried to get her tubes tied after kid #3 but the doctors refused. So much easier to just deliver the child. Such a shame. If you remember, her husband finally agreed to do a vasectomy and we paid for him to go to Santa Rosalia.

If you are headed to La Bocana, I can have the family meet you at our hotel.

If you are not getting off highway 1, I will coordinate with Bonnie, the owner of San Ignacio's IGNACIO SPRINGS to take the material. They are 5 min off the highway and will keep the donation until someone picks up!

I could really use some help with the kids - they are getting A's and B's! These are really smart students!


Every month I send them a little cash for haircuts.



BEFORE






AFTER






Enjoy your Baja time and if you meet up with the family. show us some photos!!!!

So, no more living in Turkey or were you talking figuratively?

San Ignacio Inn? What other name do we know it as, maybe what was once the 'Desert Inn'?

Thanks, and where ever you and Les are, I hope you guys are well and happy!

Edit: Thanks Blanca for the reply, below!

Oh, still in Turkey forever but I have Baja kids in college still and Tidiana and Abraham are being helped 24/7! Seven kids is really hard for them to handle.

IGNACIO SPRINGS or the yurts is what I mean! Thanks David for paying attention to the name!

Bonnnie has graciously agreed to accept any donations.
