The school for disabled children, "A New Dawn", needs your help to build their own school building. Right now they are located in the back of a hardware store. Someone already donated the land, now they need at least $100,000 USD to start building.
During the month of December we had a fund raiser to start that building fund. Here are the results of that fund raiser:
In total we raised $2,485.65 USD or $26,720.75 Pesos.
We received donations in US Dollars as well as in Pesos. To keep it simple I'll keep this report in USD.
Hurricane Divers took out 114 divers and snorkelers in December and gave $5 USD per diver/snorkeler, so we donated $570 USD.
"Wisconsin" pledged $3 USD per diver /snorkeler, so they are donating $353 USD.
Through the Nuevo Amanecer Paypal account, we received $250 USD and "Indiana" is matching that, so that was another $500 USD.
The "collection trucks" in our dive center we asked every diver and snorkeler to put their $5 USD in, gathered $244 USD.
Separately I received several $50 USD and $100 USD donations, which added up to $550 USD.
Rodrigo, from the Dublin, donated the income from his fortune telling machine which is placed in the same bar. This was $32 USD.
Last but not least, the Hurricane Divers staff donated $225 USD.
Apart from the monetary donations we also received many usefull goodies for the school over the last few weeks.
Many, many thanks to everybody that supported our December fund raiser. Soon we will sit down and see how we can build on this and get the disabled kids of Huatulco their school building. I will keep you informed through this website. I wish everybody a healthy 2007!
