  • Help the Kids of Costa Rica

    It's that time of the year folks, if you are feeling it in your heart to help out some of the less fortunate children of Costa Rica we will be collecting formula and diapers for a local orphanage. Used baby and children's clothing is also acceptable if it is in good condition.

    If you arent in a position to drop off the donation yourself Im sure some sort of easy payment method can be arranged and I will personally go and buy the items that you would like to pledge. Current diaper and forumula prices will be posted as soon as I can get to Pricesmart.

          Very generous of you Macau. Im going to have a sit down with the administrator today tas well as getting a look around at their facilities to see what they need the most. Although I have been involved with helping the children of CR for the last decade is my first time helping this particular group of children whom are mostly disabled and all taken away from abusive households.

                Nice, thanks Loman you always do. Even though Im focusing a good percentage of my attention to a new cause this year I still plan on doing my standard contribution to Open Arms as well. I have been very fortunate this year on many levels, and am looking to hooking up the children and attempting to do my part.

                      I finally got to know the place a little better today. There are 8 houses with about 8 kids in each one and about 60% of the kids are special needs and have urinary incontinence issues and like most of these children's homes they need to get their vitamins wich usually comes in the form of a shake type supplement similar to Ensure. Their playground is also in rough shape in quite a few places and pose a risk to the kids in a couple places(exposed screws, rusty nails, hooks etc) and they are missing nets off their Soccer and Basketball courts. One thing that stood out for me was that the baby swings looked like torture devices, since there was only a couple babies I went ahead and got replacements today out of pocket. We are shooting to fix the rest of the playground by mid January and hopefully one day of reaching our goal on keeping these kids supplied with dry diapers and a healthy diet year round.

                        NES,

                        I'd like to help out. Being a new father myself, it's tough to think about how little they probably have. Contact me and let me know how I can contribute.
