Last week, I published a letter from Marla Jensen, a board member of Oaxaca Street Children Grassroots, asking for your help to support the Centro de Esperanza Infantil. Those of us who live in Oaxaca know the importance of this organization. Today, I received this note from Marla, thanking us for our help. It was significant! I want to thank you, too, for your on-going generosity. You are wonderful supporters for Oaxaca in so many ways.
I just want to thank you again for the opportunity to write on your blog. So far, we have signed up 6 new sponsors and have received a lot of donations.
This has been so significant and rewarding. We are spending donations to purchase a large screen TV for the Center so children can get their school lessons. They will also receive a meal and tutoring at the Center.
We are also going to purchase several smaller televisions for remote villages. While giving children school on TV might sound like a good idea in cities, it leaves behind our poorest who have no TV or electricity.
Your kind sharing of your forum has brought a lot of help.
