Thanks to the generosity of several caring individuals in Mexico, the U.S. and Canada, $1430 USD has been raised to buy used mattresses for needy kids in the poorest colonias of La Paz.
The ‘Mattress Project’ fundraising campaign on Indiegogo.com ends on October 5th, so there’s still time to help us reach our $2000 USD goal. Used mattresses are purchased at local segundas at a cost of 350 pesos, or about $25 each … so a little money really goes a long way.
To donate before October 5, go to http://igg.me/p/208672?a=1069687.
For more information and photos of the kids receiving their new beds, visit the Camas Para Los Niño’s page on Facebook, or email Sheryl at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All donations of cash, mattresses and bedding are gratefully accepted!
