Food Bank Building - San Felipe Shoebox Project 2010
In 2007, we handed out 500 shoeboxes to needy children in the Los Arcos area of San Felipe. In 2008, we collected over 700 boxes and donated boxes to the children in Las Minitas area as well as many in San Felipe. This year we hope to increase the number of boxes collected as the need is greater than ever before.
Some suggestions for gifts to be put in the boxes…
SCHOOL SUPPLIES: pens, pencils and sharpener, crayons or markers, stamps and ink pad sets, writing pads or paper, solar calculators, coloring and picture books, etc.
HYGIENE ITEMS: toothbrush, toothpaste, mild bar soap (in a plastic bag), comb, washcloth, small shampoo (in a plastic bag) or anything else you can think that would help.
OTHER: T-shirts, socks, ball caps; sunglasses, hair clips, toy jewelry, watches, shake or wind up flashlights.
Please mark on your package, the sex of the child and age (infant, 2 to 4, 5 to 9, 9 to 11, teen). Please wrap the top and bottom of the box but do not tape it shut (may need access for customs). Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or ideas for this worthwhile project. My email address is : firstname.lastname@example.org. Packages may be dropped off at the Food Bank building on the way to San Felipe. Thank you in advance for your generosity.
Organized by Debbi Moore ( email@example.com)

Some of the whale activity viewable from shore includes breaching (jumping into the air), sounding (showing the tail fin as they dive) and spyhopping (where the whale lifts its head to the surface and looks around). ATTENTION: Baja Good Life Club Members Check back for Whale Tour Packages.
Friday evening's opening ceremonies will be held in the rooftop Salon Cielo and will welcome all the attendees from both countries with traditional Mexican hospitality. The two-day festivities to follow will be centered around a Saturday evening concert headlined by the Grammy Award-winning Mariachi Divas in their initial south-of-the-border performance. Maya, Timoteo – El Charro Negro, Olga Flores, Folklorico Ixtlazihuatl, Genesis, and Beto Jimenez Maeda will also be performing. Saturday and Sunday's daytime activities will feature an adjudicated competition between the best young musicians and dancers from the USA and Mexico.
All the net proceeds from the Festival will contribute to the $1 million needed to construct The Boys and Girls
Club of Rosarito. Upon completion, the Club will provide a myriad of recreational and educational activities for the area's children. The organization's primary purpose is to give the local youth positive reinforcement while keeping them off of the streets and out of trouble.
The entire community of Rosarito is working in conjunction with The Boy' and Girls Club's President, Rosy
Torres, and local author Gil Sperry to make this event successful. Sperry’s first book, Mariachi for Gringos, is the inspiration for using this beloved music to create the foundations for a strong bridge between the cultures while securing the futures of their at-risk youngsters.
Individual event tickets start from $10 while an advance all-event package, if purchased before September 1st, is $40. The Mariachi Divas and Friends concert begins at 7:00 PM on Saturday, October 2nd. The daily competitions will begin at 10:00 AM.

Artist's Get Ready for the 2nd Annual La Paz Festival D'arte 2010

Location: Marina Palmira. Booth locations changed for a more contiguous setting. The audience seating & stage for the musical performances will be situated in shade and closer to the booth area than last year. As suggested by many of last years attendees, a food fair is added featuring some of our local La Paz restaurants.
All proceeds benefit FANLAP and Baja Dogs. Well known artist, Rafael Chavez states "everything about the Festival D'Arte benefits La Paz, and our hope this year is that the entire community will be involved in every aspect of the event".

Just a quick status update to let you know that as of October 1st, the ZAPP Spay/Neuter Street Project will be opening its new location here in San Felipe. On Saturday, October 16th we will hold our first no to low cost clinic, and we need some financial help to buy paint, building materials, lighting, recovery supplies, and so much more.
Bill Spradlin of San Felipe Home Builders is creating a substantial sized, well lit, well equipped surgery room for Dr. Solis and his assistants from the University, and we'll have a very efficient recovery area for post surgical patients where volunteers will oversee dogs and cats as they come out of surgery.
As you know, back in December of 2009 all the supplies ZAPP had accumulated for our then existing spay/neuter project were given directly to the ZAPP Center which is now permanently closed, and we are unable to get any of our supplies back so we can continue this work. If you can make a donation of any size to help in the overall cost of opening our new center, we would be very grateful.
We plan to hold at least two clinics every month, fixing 100+ animals so we can get back on track with fertility control in San Felipe, with an overall goal of doing 200 spays and neuters each and every month.If we can just fix 75% of the stray and indigent animal population, we will ultimately see zero additional population growth and we will see the the end of roundups and euthanasia. Thanks so much in advance for your continued support and generosity, and most of all for your belief in me, and the work ZAPP is committed to doing.
