The Goal: $500,000

We’re going to rebuild. That was the commitment we made the day after Hurricane Odile struck. But we also recognized the immediate needs that come after a natural disaster the magnitude of Hurricane Odile. That’s why we initiated our first phase of support in the form of emergency relief. After completing community needs assessments, and meeting with local leadership, we have initiated a plan to deliver reconstruction grants to the most devastated areas around Los Cabos. But we need your help to do it! DONATE ONLINE NOW
