Coins in Cans Fundraiser in Vallarta for Special Needs Children

Team Angels - Pasitos de Luz
November 29, 2013

Pasitos de Luz is a non-profit organization that provides care for special needs children from low-income families in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. It was founded more than fourteen years ago by a determined group of mothers who were desperate to have a place where their disabled children could receive decent levels of care and attention.

Pasitos de Luz does not charge a single peso for its services. All the children are fed and looked after at no cost to the parents. Instead, all our funds come from the generous support of our local and foreign benefactors. It is truly a miracle that our charity has existed for so long, and we are determined to keep working for its long-term future.

Are you in PV at the moment? Then you're here just at the right time! Our annual fundraiser, El Pasitón, is in full swing and we desperately need your support. Think you can help?

The idea is simple. We need the whole of Puerto Vallarta to get behind Pasitos and raise funds to enable us to continue offering services to our children. Every peso counts! Whether you want to help out as a business, institution, as an individual or a group of friends, every pair of hands is needed.

We are being ambitious this year. By midnight of December 15th, we aim to have collected 200,000 pesos (15,400 USD). We are confident that with the support of Vallarta, we can achieve this! The fundraiser will run until December 20.

There are many ways you can help, including:

• Host a fundraising event on our behalf, especially if you are a restaurant, bar or hotel
• Donate your loose change at one of our collection points around Puerto Vallarta
• Become a volunteer for an hour, a day or a week, collecting money at one of our collection points
• Donate $20, $50, $100 or more directly to our Bancomer account no. 0146647480!

Any spare pesos, dimes, nickels, etc. are more than welcome. You can donate your spare change at the following locations:

• Cassandra Shaw Jewelry, Basilio Badillo 276
• La Cigale French Bistro, Hidalgo 398
• JD’s BBQ, Basilio Badillo 283    
• Lucy's Cucu Cabana & Zoo, Basilio Badillo 295
• Nacho Daddy, Basilio Badillo 287
• Peyote People, Calle Juárez 222
• Pitt Bar & Grill, Basilio Badillo 229
• Thirsty Cougar, Olas Altas 443

Look for the posters in the store windows for other collection locations.

Do you think you can help? If so, please get in touch via email at info@pasitosdeluz.org, or by telephone at (322) 299-3625, and we will explain everything.

Keep up with the action at Pasitos de Luz on Facebook.

We're planning a closing party to celebrate our success. Stay tuned for details.

Help us to help our kids! Thank you amigos!
