Sponsor a Tarámari Child This Christmas

Indigenous people around the world have been marginalized for centuries, and México is sadly no exception. Please join me this holiday season to make a difference in the life of a native child by helping Tarámari schoolchildren here in Sinaloa. These kids live in unbelievably poor families, in isolated communities, and make herculean efforts to get to school. Their families often need them at home, so sticking with an education takes enormous the hard work and commitment of the entire family, plus a bit of luck.

We will work with the the Sinaloan Taramari Collective to support Tarámari children living right here in our state of Sinaloa. There are three terrific ways you can help:

1. Let us know you want to sponsor a child. We’ll get you the child’s name, gender, age and town of residence. You fill a backpack for them as you wish: you might include new toys, school or art supplies, and perhaps a set of clothing for your godchild. Please turn the backpack in by December 15th.

2. Donate money to the Colectivo Tarámari Sinaloense, and they will share with you a ticket that proves your donation went to buy products for the children. In the photo below are card numbers for you to transfer money to (you can pay at any OXXO if you don’t have a local bank account). The leader, Hortensia López Gaxiola, is well-known and trusted nationally for her social activism.

3. Donate non-perishable food items, basic food supplies. Local Mazatlán coordinator, Angela Mar Camacho, will pick them up.

Please pass the word around and thank you for your help. Let’s show these kids that Mazatlán’s foreign community supports them! ❤❤❤

Ho, ho, ho!!! Merry Christmas! Happy Hanukkah! Heri za Kwanzaa! Blessed New Year!

  1. Hi Dianne haven’t seen any of your postings in quite a while.
    I have been getting missives from Pity Vidale.
    I spent January of this year at top of Icebox Hill.
    Something that should be on your radar; April the 8th 2024 there will be a total eclipse of the sun moving over Mazatlan as its epicenter.
    I experienced one 2 years ago in Nebraska and it was amazing. I plan on coming for Mazatlan
    moment.
