Thank You All

     We want to thank everyone that joined us at Los Arcos on Sunday. Cliff and Susie put on a great brunch and it was great to see everyone that came. Cliff and Susie have been friends of Casa de Fe from the first day we received the girls.
    We have people who have donations in San Francisco and Henderson, Nv that have donations. If you are from or are going through those areas and are coming down to San Felipe please let us know.
     I also want to thank someone who helped us out a couple of weeks ago. Robert emailed me months ago and said he wanted to help us with his Off-road group from Mexicali and Calexico. I told him we would be appreciative for any help and what could we do to help him. He said when it came closer he would let me know. I didn’t hear from him for a couple of months but true to his word he called and we made arrangements to meet on Sat. afternoon on the Malecon for a ceremony to present us with a “small donation”. What they had there was enough to fill the back of our Suburban and we were very happy with this. We met a lot of good people and enjoyed their fun of riding off road from Mexicali to San Felipe. The surprise was the next day when 5-6 groups of riders who had finished later than the ceremony came by the Casa. We made a lot of new friends and were overwhelmed with the donations that they brought. It was enough to supplement us for a good 3-4 weeks. To me the important lesson was how easy it is to help when a lot of people each do what they can, no matter how large or small.
     All of you are the reason we are able to help these girls. From the first person who donated for our septic system, to the people who come to help with the girls during the day, to the people who donate food, to the people who sponsor needs on a monthly basis. We are blessed by you all. Thank you.
