News and Events, Questions and Answers

Hogar Del Nino – Do You Know? - Do you know how much money it takes per month to operate Hogar del Nino? Do you know how many children are being cared for now at Hogar del Nino? For the answer to these and many more interesting tidbits of information get a subscription to the new monthly Friends of Hogar del Nino Newsletter by simply contacting Nancy Naigle at nnaigle [- at -] att.net and ask to be added to the distribution list.

In the meantime, with so many US and Canadian residents heading back home, the need for support is greater than ever. Please make donations for the basics such as food and clothing at http://padrinoproject.com/ and click on “Become a Padrino” or contact Nancy Serfas at Nancyserfas [- at -] aol.com. Want to help with an urgent need? Here are two opportunities:
  1. There’s a critical need to provide a new clothesline system adequate to handle the amount of laundry which must be done on a daily basis. The cost of a new system is about 4,000 pesos (about $300 USD). If you’re interested, contact Nancy Naigle at nnaigle [- at -] att.net.
  2. There is always a shortage of protein in the food supply which Hogar del Nino is able to afford to buy. If just five people would donate ten pounds of meat or chicken it would be a great help. If you can do this, please contact Nancy Serfas at Nancyserfas [- at -] aolo.com.
- Nancy Naigle, nnaigle [- at -] att.net, 612-178-0040, Todos Santos

New Phone Book 2013-2014 - Production will begin this summer. There is an on-line Resident submission form for all new residents (locals and part-time).This form will be available now through mid-October. Our Book is exclusive to Residents of Todos Santos, El Pescadero, Elias Calles and El Triunfo only. www.TodosSantos.me

Homeless Dogs Need Help --->>> - There are homeless dogs at both Punto Lobos and Las Palmas that need our help. Do you have time to go once a week to either beach and take food and water? Could you donate a bag of dog food from time to time? The dogs have all been or will be spayed or neutered thanks to the funds raised at the Fur Ball but there is no resource for food money. Please let us know if you can help. - Pam, senoracobb [- at -] yahoo.com, 612-102-7983

Pescadero Trash Pickup? (huerta Area) - Does anyone have a contact for Pescadero trash pickup service in the huerta area of Pescadero? Thanks. bolt71 [- at -] hughes.net

Sending Package UPS To The US - I need to send a package UPS to the US. Does anyone have any first-hand experience using the local office at El Miro compared to sending from an office in Cabo or La Paz? Any words to the wise or things I should keep in mind. ashleyself [- at -] hughes.net

Nothing Is Free - As an energy engineering technologist, I can say a few things: Nothing is for free. There are no "free" energy gadgets. None. Those devices that save you energy are well advertised and should come with a refund guarantee. I provide "free" advice to my customers for a fee, being a simple donation to Hogar de Ninos in Todos Santos. - Erwin Lapschies, erwinecosmart [- at -] gmail.com, 521-624-166-9473, Todos Santos

Help Moving 5th Wheel Trailer - Looking for help to move a 30-ft 5th wheel trailer. The trailer need to be move by July 10, 2012. The trailer is in Santa Rosalia Baja California Sur. Email me for more information, Dini Jaskowski [- at -] wannago2010 [- at -] gmail.com. - Dini Jaskowski, wannago2010 [- at -] gmail.com, Baja California Sur

Sky Cable Service - Interested in having Cable Service? We recently moved from Todos Santos to Cabo (I know what you are thinking!) and we cannot cancel nor move here our service. We still have a couple more months to go (less than a year) and I hate to pay for nothing! What can be done, though, is move it in TS to a different house or bussines. It will still be under my name but you will be paying the monthly bill (at OXXO). You have different packages to choose from (and can switch every month to try them all, from movies, news, sitcoms), that go from around 300 pesos up. If you are intrested, e-mail me sethanabel [- at -] hotmail.com. It's a good deal for you because it's a shorter contract and you don't have to pay the conection fees and I will take care of the hassle of talking to them in La Paz. - Anabel Munoz

Ray, Ray, Ray! - Ray, it's Red, we all miss you. Call us at 808-442-2941. We miss you! - Redley Lamar, burke_richard [- at -] hotmail.com, 808-442-2941
