Lela finally makes it to Chile
Sister Gabriella Vergara Ríos was kind enough to send us a photo too. In the picture, you see the head nun (centre), Sister Gabriella (holding the receipt from Western Union!) and a few of the students that were overjoyed to hear that a little pig from Mexico donated so much money. In fact, we sent a total of $336,582.39 CLP !! On top of that, the girls and the Sisters wanted to express how very very grateful they are to EVERYONE who donated to Lela for the Chile cause – and religious or not – God bless you (in their words) 😉
The money will go to helping repair the school which was badly damaged in the earthquake back in Feb (see past blog entry)
Again, we send a big big thank you to everyone and hope that Lela continues to help those around the world.
On another warming note – Mazatlan is heating up. Our weather is slowly but surely getting warmer and warmer, with the humidity settling in just nicely. For those planning on visiting soon, be sure to bring shorts, swimsuits and plenty of sunscreen, because Salsa and Salsa is about to get HOT HOT HOT!
Don’t forget to smile today 😉
