Palapa Society Of Todos Santos Hurricane Relief Project - September 14/15th Hurricane Odile left hundreds of individuals in and around Todos Santos with a critical need for food, supplies and shelter. Almost immediately, the Palapa Society set up donation accounts with GoFundMe and ICF. Local and international response was overwhelmingly positive; however, donations were not available until October 6th; nevertheless, Palapa was able to temporarily loan money from its education, health and library funds in order to initiate food purchases by Sept. 20th as well as to begin roof replacements.
In addition, a community-wide 18 member committee was formed in order to determine priorities for the donated Hurricane Relief Funds. Comprehensive information and photos detailing PSTS Hurricane Relief efforts are available at www.palapasociety.org; however, the following is also very important to know:
*Thus far, over 1,100,000 pesos have been donated through GoFundMe, the International Community Foundation, and 2015 Todos Santos Music Festival ticket sales.
*Expenditures as of Oct. 20th total 475,989.69 pesos. See category spending chart.
Numerous volunteers and paid construction workers have spent countless hours assessing needs and providing relief to Todos Santos and outlying ranch families. As donated funds remain available, construction and other help will continue during the next several weeks. If you know someone who needs help because of the hurricane, please contact info [- at -] palapasociety.org. ☞ Todos Santos

Kitty Heaven On Its Way to Recovery - The challenge grant issued by the BWO in its last issue was a success! More than $100 have been pledged to the rebuilding of the structure, previous home to more than 30 homeless cats and kittens. A big "thank you" to Carrie Duncan publisher of the Gringo Gazette. Carrie's donation alone matched the BWO $100 challenge grant which means at least $200 are now available for a much-needed new roof.
Even more donations will be needed to complete Kitty Heaven's recovery efforts. The 30+ residents of Kitty Heaven, the Baja's only all-cat refuge, found themselves without a safe haven when the hurricane ripped off the metal roof of their Todos Santos home. The majority of the terrified felines fled while a handful were eventually rounded up by Angelique Schornstein, founder and caretaker. Just a few short weeks ago, the block structure featured a cozy home complete with outdoor "catio" where dozens of cats have lived prior to placement in local homes.
Tax deductible donations can be made through PayPal on the www.bajarescue.org web site. You can also contact Angelique directly by either calling 145-0250 or sending email to bajakitties [- at -] yahoo.com.
Pictured left is one resident waiting on top of a cactus waiting to be rescued by the fire department.

Dog For Adoption-->> - Hi everybody. My name is Jasmine. I'm a Nova Scotia Duck Retriever with a gorgeous head of hair. I'm almost 8 years old and in excellent health. I'm looking for a new home because my mom has to move back to Erurope and she can't take me with her. I'm a happy and friendly girl, but if anyone threatens my people I become a terrific watch dog. Running is my exercise of choice because, you know, a girl has to keep her figure. If you're looking for a fun companion, I'm all yours. ☞ Anja Neal, 612-152-2891, La Paz
