Help us spread joy, laughter and love to the children and families of Monadero, Mexico. While we love entertaining, we realize that not all children have the opportunity to experience live entertainment, get their faces painted, receive a fun balloon animal, or have the experience of having a clown or character visit their home. This is why we are overjoyed to be joining Su Misericordia this coming November, and will travel to provide love and joy to the children within this community. Since 1992, this non-profit organization has visited and provided outreach and support to thousands of Oaxacan Indians in Maneadero, Mexico (just outside of Ensenada).

Each year, Su Misericordia travels four times during the year to distribute clothing, shoes, blankets, tarps, basic necessities in addition to providing medical and financial support to the very needy. During each visit, items are given to over 100 families representing over 500 children and adults. Rain or shine, they start lining up as early as 4:00 am to make sure they receive what they have to offer.

It is hard to believe that within this community there is no running water, and many struggle to put food on their tables, provide clothing and shoes for their children, and provide adequate shelter for their families from the cold and rain, as most have dirt floors and live in self constructed huts.

We are raising $2,500 which will include the following: our participation in the trip covering transportation, food, lodging, face paint/balloon supplies, and a great deal of this will go towards the construction of a building project for the community, such as a working bathroom. All donations will be going to Su Misericordia and are 100 % tax deductible.

We appreciate your support in advance and are excited to take part in this wonderful journey of compassion.

In gratitude, 

Vanessa Hidalgo
