CORAZON DE VIDA FOUNDATION
July 22, 2012

Corazon de vida lets you play, share smiles, and interact with the children/ teenagers of the orphanages of Baja Mexico. To see the kids smile and laugh who have so little can impact your heart. One of the few organizations that impacts the lives of the kids across our border. By spending a day in Baja your life will be altered. A great way to spend the day hugging, giving piggy back rides, helping with art projects, playing soccer, chopping fruit (or other tasks to help with lunch), etc. You get to Baja with a nice air conditioned bus with like minded individuals. Lunch, which is usually pizza, is given to the volunteers and kids. You arrive back to your house before 7 pm.

CORAZON DE VIDA FOUNDATION
August 9, 2011

Volunteering for Corazon de Vida is a WONDERFUL way to make a difference in the lives of so MANY babies, children & teenagers living in orphanages in (Tijuana/ Ensenada) Mexico. When you volunteer you are taken safely from a bus from LA/Irvine/San Diego. When you arrive you are greeted by smiles, hugs, and laughter from the kids/ teens. You interact, play, laugh, and eat with the kids. By doing crafts, playing, or helping to prepare or clean up after a meal you are helping the kids. An AMAZING organization!

The Great!
