Keep 53 children out of night clubs, Oaxaca Mexico

About to Cross the Finish Line

Hope this message finds you well!

Today marks an exciting moment for Expand Casa Hogar. The last of the funds raised by Expand Casa Hogar up to this moment have been wired to Oaxaca. In a matter of days, it will be clear just how close we have come to raising the entire price of the two-story house next door to Casa Hogar, our goal! Hopefully, the gap is very small. Doña Coco and everyone at Casa Hogar are very excited to complete the purchase and are prepared to dig deep for the rest of the money needed!

This additional building provides beds for about half of the fifty-plus children at Casa Hogar Hijos de la Luna, a bathroom, room for the water purification system and extended kitchen storage. The property also contains a cement area currently used for basketball and general play which might serve as the foundation for more indoor space in the future. Casa Hogar currently rents the property, thus, the purchase will provide financial relief by removing those rental payments from the Hijos de la Luna budget!

As always, thank you so much for your support. I encourage you to consider helping Casa Hogar close the gap on the purchase (how large that gap is to be announced) by donating on GlobalGiving. Visit our Facebook page or blog for more information!

Peace and love,


House to buy from the street
