Children's Home In Todos Santos Needs Your Help! - Hogar del Nino (Children's Home) in Todos Santos desperately needs your help! This is a home for children who are abused, neglected, orphaned, or for whatever other reason are not able to live with their own family. The children come to the home through DIF (Mexican social services) but receive nothing from the government to support the children - no money, food, clothing, school supplies, gas - nothing.

You can help by going to http://www.PadrinoProject.com and either making a donation or signing up to automatically contribute every month. All the money donated there goes directly to Hogar del Nino. There are no administrative costs. It is an easy way to make a difference in a child's life. Thanks you for helping! - Nancy Serfass, nancyserfas [ - a t - ] aol.com, www.PadrinoProject.com

Baja Foreign Business Group to Meet - Courtesy La Paz Gringos - After taking some time off this summer, we are having our first meeting of the Baja Foreign Business Group Oct. 18 starting at 6:30 p.m. at the Dinghy Dock Restaurant. There will be a 1/2 hour social and then a meeting from 7-8 p.m. Juli Goff and Jill Roldan of Tailhunters started the group. We encourage foreign business owners and others who simply want to contribute to attend our first organizational and planning meeting. Be sure to bring brochures on your business to pass around. Our purpose is to help support each other to become more successful and to have fun along the way. We will be bringing in guest speakers on issues you deem important. All meetings are in English and we will have a translator available when needed for speakers.

So, come on out to the Dinghy Dock Restaurant (overlooking the Palmira Marina). We look forward to seeing you there. It will help to have an idea of the number of people coming, so please email me at jim [ - a t - ] lindaneil.com to let me know you will attend and/or to answer any questions you might have. Thanks. - Jim Donahoe, moderator [ - a t - ] bajawesternonion.com, La Paz

Please Help Keep Unwanted Dogs and Cats Off Our Streets - The annual Spay/Neuter Clinic will take place Nov. 17, 18, and 19 at La Canada del Diablo. Four vets from the U.S. along with several vet techs will join our local vets in an effort to reduce the overpopulation of dogs and cats in our neighborhoods. This service is provided at greatly reduced or free of charge to those in the local Mexican community who could not afford otherwise to have their animals neutered.

While the vets, both local and U.S. donate their services, there are still many expenses involved. The funds raised at the Fur Ball help offset these costs but there is never quite enough. If you have a shopping trip coming up and could help with a few purchases, the following items are essential:

  1. paper towels
  2. syringes 3 ml
  3. alcohol
  4. trash bags
  5. rubber gloves
And let's not forget those hungry, thirsty vets and volunteers who so appreciate drinking water, sodas and snacks. Please mark the dates on your calendar!
