We have received one large donation to this project bringing the funding goal down to only $884.00 at this time.

On August 28 and 29th the community of San Luis held a weekend fundraiser to help the Monge family with their situation. Used clothing, food and drinks were served. They held a bicycle race as well. The event raised almost $300.

September 16, less than one month later their son Josue passed away. His presence in our world was for his mother, Alba. Because of her relentless determination to care for him she was able, last year, to overcome terminal cancer (5 tumors) and return to her original healthy self.

Let’s show this family our grand appreciation for the conservation of this incomparable lakeside forest tract. YOU make the difference in our world, so come on and GET GIVING!

On October 12th Global Giving is once again offering their bonus incentive. There is $100,000 in matching funds, but the percentage matched is based on a graduated scale.  The more a you give, the higher the matching percentage and they're matching up to $2,500 per donor! This is a great opportunity to stretch your donation dollars even farther and to help implement this much needed project. Please give now and help this dream become a reality.
