Let's Rally for La Casa de Los Ninos to Provide Needed Materials and Supplies

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?
