A friend of mine is a teacher here and gives regular updates on the Foundation's activities with the girls via her blog. My favorite updates are the ones featuring a girl from a previous year at Mariposa. Reading about their accomplishments big and small really brings home the impact these selfless volunteers have in the community.

As the father of a volunteer I have first hand knowledge of the benefits of my donation. My daughter volunteered for the first time during the summer of 2009 to act as a summer camp leader. She returned the following summer and decided that she would like to spend the year. When I learned of her desire I know I needed to check the foundation out. My family visited Aug of 2011 and saw firsthand the dedication and benefits of the foundation and the programs provided to the young ladies. The funds that my wife and I provide are all put to good use and well spent.
