La Casa de los Niños New Location (Dave Martinez)
Dave Martinez is leading the Rally for La Casa de los Niños, and I think you will be inspired by this fundraising campaign. Please take a moment to check it out.
Almost 8 years ago when we opened our doors for the first time and found 80 kids outside, we knew that something magical was happening. When I write La Casa's yearly newsletter, I am constantly amazed with the special projects, activities and events that have occured and continue to occur! Donations have just gone over $2,000 towards our $5,000 goal for our Rally.
La Casa de los Niños, a USA 501(c)3 nonprofit, is a free after school enrichment program for children ages 6-15, who live in and around the small village of Lo de Marcos, Mexico.
"La Casa" was founded and established in 2005 by David & Patricia Martinez and Jim & Dulce Heinrich as a memorial tribute to their children. The program's intention is to provide a safe place for the children to play, learn and dream. "La Casa" has a staff of 4 teachers from the local community and volunteers come from throughout the America's to provide their special skills in working with the children!
Daily activities at "La Casa" include; computer instruction, help with homework, arts & crafts, music lessons, dance, theater, sports, cooking and also community and evironmental projects. "La Casa" also provides; classes to teach English to children and the adult community, a baby and mother reading and art program, scholarships for higher education, a center for a new bird watching workshop program and a place to meet for the community.
"La Casa" just moved to a new location in Lo de Marcos, Nayarit, and is offering new programs and more materials and supplies are needed! Funds donated will help buy a variety of arts & crafts materials, hand tools for jewelry making and woodworking, board games, puzzles, books, sports equipment, folding tables, benches, white boards, kitchen supplies, toys, binoculars, and a shade/rain canopy.
As of today, we have been fortunate enough to have received $2,080 from your generous Rally donations and are working towards our goal of $5,000. Can you help our children in improving their futures?
