A Hot New Plan for those Chilly Nights

With the help of many generous people, we distributed about 100 blankets to kids in the colonias last month. Sadly, there were dozens more who went home empty handed.
During these chilly winter nights as I snuggle into my cozy bed, I can’t help but think of all those kids who are sleeping on the ground, often without so much as a blanket to keep them warm.
Sarah and Shannon are the two young women who volunteered to distribute the blankets in December. They’re the ones who saw the beaming faces of the kids who got one, and the look of disappointment on those who didn’t. ‘The girls’ have just launched a new fundraising campaign on Indiegogo to buy more blankets for the kids out in the colonias. Their goal is to raise $1500 USD in the next 40 days. That’s enough to buy about 230 blankets.
Please visit the Indiegogo site at http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/308299/x/1069687 and help them reach their goal!
It is important to note that Mary Schroyer at Marina de La Paz will gladly accept blankets, coats, mittens and scarves, although blankets are really needed.  Whatever is received will be delivered promptly.
