Help us provided much needed beds and art to these kids. You won't miss that $10, $25, or $100 so much, but it will mean a whole different world to these children.

Ciudad de Angeles is an orphanage in Cozumel Mexico that is home for 40 kids, 4-18. They need 20 beds for the transition house and we are starting a mural project with 8 of the kids now.

My husband David is an artist blacksmith and will be making 10 beds that they have the funds for, we would like to raise the money for the other 10 beds and make them while we are here. Each bed costs about $100 for materials. (total $1000.)

I am an art therapist and a decorative painter. Art is healing, expressive, and fun! My project with the kids is helping 8 of the older kids creat a mural that tells a story about their family and their life for the entrance of the portico of their "neighborhood".  The materials cost $325 for paint, brushes, containers, and drawing materials.  Creating art is such a therapuetic activity, I would like to raise the extra money to buy art supplies for all the kids to be able to use outside of school assignments; they have none. ($325+ $175.= $500)

Any extra money will be allocated for Beds for Angels (even more beds are needed--bunk beds and single beds, for the family houses) or for Art for Angels.  Kids can use up art materials very fast!

We found out that Mexico is not a culture of giving, the orphanage relies on donations, volunteerism from the States and beyond.

This is also a place where we see that easels with a coloring book page is a  "penny attraction" at fairs and celebrations; most of the kids don't have paint, markers, or even crayons at home.
