Lela the Pig lends a hand in West Virginia and Chile

Our little Lela has come a very long way!  For the month of April, we have collected a whopping $754.47USD!!

We really are amazed at the generosity that everyone has shown for our little pig.  As Leonique says, it’s truly amazing that a little pig, in a little tour, in the middle of Mexico, can help and reach so many people…

April 2010 Donations

April donations will be heading to victims of the earthquake in Chile, which occurred a little while ago.  As most of you know, I was born in Chile and have most of my relatives there.  I have seen first hand the devastation through the eyes of my family, and the internet, I have seen photos, news footage and youtube clips of horrific damage, homelessness, destruction and looting.

It will always touch my heart to see people pulling together in times of desperation.  And the support came from all over the world.  Not only did we have people donate at the show, we had people donating online, from as far as India and as close as the USA.  So thank you to everyone for their donations.  Lela will continue helping those who need her help!

We recently sent off the donations to the West Virginia Red Cross Chapter, to help the wives and families of the 27 men who lost their lives.  Our prayers go out to all those involved.  A total of $118USD was sent and collected in less than 1 week.

It’s always fun to be able to come up with a new and innovative way to help others.  LELA really has been fun, with our Facebook Album #2, LELA has had her photo taken with more than 400 people, making her one of the most charitable pigs in Mazatlan!

GO LELA GO!
