    I am a long time poster on Cancun Care, 10 years and almost 3000 posts. I have been living here more than 8 years after vacationing here since 1991.

    For several years I have been donating time, energy, money and love to a local orphanage with the help of many friends, family and visitors to Cancun. Recently, we started a Facebook page and a website. We call ourselves FRIENDS OF CASA HOGAR. The links to both appear below my signature. If you Like our Facebook page, please give us a "Like".

    If anyone wants to do something charitable in your home away from home, please contact us. This is a "do good" and a "feel good" mission. Escorted visits can be arranged for donors. We ask for a minimum of two weeks notice. Visits need to be focused on helping those less fortunate. These children did not choose to be orphans.

    The best gift is money as it can be used for anything we need. Money can be sent from anywhere in the world or delivered in person. There is a laundry list of things we need and the list changes often. Some visitors go shipping with us and have blessed us by buying the groceries that Friends of Casa Hogar delivers weekly. This happened a couple of weeks ago and you can see a photo of the couple who reached out this way.

    Friends of Casa Hogar and Casa Hogar are both Christian based organizations. We happily welcome those not of our faith to be a part of our work. Monetary donations through the website are tax deductible and are paid thru our associates, Better Business Services Charities, Inc. Casa Hogar receives ZERO MONEY OR FINANCIAL SUPPORT from any governmental agency. Support is entirely from donations. They need our help. Friends of Casa Hogar uses every penny/peso for the kids and their home. Nothing is retained by Friends of Casa Hogar for any costs or expenses of any kind. Nothing.

    We serve God by serving others. Please help us make miracles happen for this childrens' home, the children who live there and those who care for them. You will feel good about this. We are real, hands on and accessible. We have a US phone number that rings here in Cancun.

    Please check out the links below. Contact us with any questions and for our current needs.

    Thanks so much,
    TJ

    Thanks to the 108 of you who viewed this post so far. I would love to answer any questions or reply to any comments. On Friday we are taking everyone to Peter Piper Pizza, Cancun's answer to Chuck E Cheese. Will post photos over the weekend on Facebook and the Website. Not only do we help kids who need it, we give back to the community and it is so much fun.

    If no one does a thing, it would be most appreciated if you at least could LIKE our Facebook page. www.facebook.com/friendsofcasahogar. That would be huge.

    Thanks so much.
