True Meaning of Christmas

Giving. The true meaning of Christmas.

It´s not how much we give but how much love we put into giving – Mother Teresa The miracle is this, the more we share the more we have. Never get tired of doing little things for others, sometimes those little things occupy the biggest parts of their hearts.

Our Goal

Our goal this year is to raise $4000USD which will give us enough money to buy each child a toy, a pair of sandals and one t-shirt. With this money we will also be able to give each family a food basket, blanket, toothpaste and toothbrushes for the children. We will also provide everyone with a small lunch.

 

The event this year will be on the 16th of December. With your donations we can give the families in these two small villages and the children another day to remember. We are even bringing a clown this year. Most of the kids in these towns have never had the opportunity to watch a clown show. We would absolutely love for you to be a part of bringing some happiness, food and fun to these people again this year.

Who We Are Helping

We would like to reach out to you once again on behalf of the children and families in the two small towns we have helped for the past two years. The first one is called San Marcos where there are 44 families with 108 children. The second one is called Xlapak with 36 families and 55 children. This year we are adding a third town called Tinunca with 40 families and another 157 children!! The area is in the south part of the Yucatan Peninsula and is considered one of the poorest in the state. The villages are about 3 and a half hours from Merida which means they do not get very much help from any volunteers. We love to help these families as you can feel and see their appreciation every year. The kids are so happy to see Santa´s truck pulling up filled with toys and food for their families. They run to get in line to get their gift from Santa.

Donate

Your donation goes very far in Mexico and every little bit helps.

Your Donation

Any donation is very much appreciated by us, the children you bring a gift to and by the parents that get to see their children receiving a gift from Santa. It is so appreciated by the families that receive a food basket and have food in the house for Christmas. Thank you so much for considering donating to the event! Remember, even if you cannot donate, you can still see the video we will post each Christmas, and be a part of the giving.

About Us

Since 2012, we have been bringing a little Christmas to needy families in poor towns around Yucatan, Mexico. With the help of family and friends we are able to create parties for the children and families of the towns. We go dressed as Santa and Mrs. Claus to hand out presents to children along with shoes and a shirt, food baskets to the parents and lunch to all that attend. This would not be possible without the donations from our friends and family in Canada, the US and Mexico. From the very first year, we were amazed and so touched by how many people wanted to be a part of these events. We always video the gift giving so we can share that with everyone. It is something that is amazing to see and be a part of. It is our goal, with your help, to continue with this event each and every year.
