Help us support Baja Mexico’s orphanages by donating backpacks and school supplies to the Corazon de Vida Foundation a non-profit organization providing life-changing support for orphaned or abandoned children in Baja, Mexico.
Stated simply, one of the biggest problems Mexico faces is a lack of social programs. Unlike in the U.S., Mexico does not have foster care or welfare system. The only way to care and support children in need is through a network of private orphanages, funded entirely through individual and corporate donations.
Corazon de Vida (CDV) is a 20+ year US 501c3 non-profit organization providing life-changing support for orphaned and abandoned children in Baja, Mexico by funding local orphanages, providing quality of life improvement services and investing in the children’s future by funding higher education.
Through our life-sustaining program we provide monthly funding for the orphanages under our care. These orphanages give abandoned children security, nutrition, shelter and access to a reliable education. We also fund scholarships for teens aging out of the orphanage system to continue their education. We provide consistent, monthly support to 10+ orphanages, housing over 700 children. Our university program currently has 45+ past orphanage residents in college or technical school, and serving as role models to their younger ‘siblings’.
You can drop off your donations at the Blue C office anytime between now and Friday, September 14th or you can contribute by adding items to our Amazon Baja School Supplies Wish List by visiting this link http://a.co/5aprauy and selecting Eric Morley as the address option.
Supplies needed are: School backpacks, pencils, lined paper, colored pencils, markers, rulers, calculators, pencil pouches, scissors, journals, tissues, pencil sharpeners and water bottles.
