Puerto Escondido, Mexico needs us!!

On behalf of Gina Machorro, I am  volunteering as a connection to help raise some money for folks in need.  Some places in the world rely almost entirely on tourism and people who live in cold climates going to warm places for the winter.  Puerto Escondido is one such place.  Some of you may have been there.  The water is warm and the people are even warmer.  Right now, those people are suffering and worrying about how they will pay their water and light bills, buy food for their families and school supplies for their children, assuming no one gets sick.  I am asking you to donate some money,   maybe 10% of what you would have spent on travel to Mexico this winter, to help these people get through this time.  Gina Machorro  has worked as a tourist advisor in Puerto Escondido for almost 30 years and she is well-known and trusted in the area.  She has made deep connections with surrounding communities and has gained their trust over many years.  Gina is a hero of Mexico (www.theheroesofmexico2013.com) and your donation will allow her to help those most needy.    Please give generously.   Show your appreciation for the smiles, the service and the warmth your have received in Mexico and in the Puerto Escondido area.  The people will be so grateful.  Gracias amigas!!
