A little school in middle of 3 colonials trying to offer after school classes to teach children to speak English so they can get better jobs. It seemed no one knew about their struggle to keep the school going. No tourism in these little towns. Work is hard to come by. Fate brought me into their struggle, and with the help with other philanthropists (with no money, just big hearts and hard work) led me to casajofofoundation.org. We presented our mission and our purpose. The foundation accepted us! We were thrilled. Now we are getting contributions and are learning how to make our very special dreams come true for this little school. Thank you again casajojo. You have given us hope to keep this school going and teaching children who would never have had the opportunity that education gives us. Please go to their website casajojofoundation.org and click on Learning Center for more insight to our struggle.

Every year when in Puerto Vallarta we always visit Corazon de Nina on a Tuesday when their Humanitarian Breakfast is held. You get a hearty breakfast and a tour of the facility. Corazon is privately funded and always growing. The $200 peso donation for breakfast and the tour is a deal. We always leave an extra donation to help them continue their expansion.

We began assisting Casa JoJo in 2012 after discovering that we knew four child victims of Sexual/physical abuse who were in Corazon de Nina (Heart of the Girl), an orphanage which Casa JoJo supports. Since then we have invested hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars in assisting Casa JoJo, with most of our efforts going towards Corazon. Last year in an effort to support Cheryl's Shoebox (another organization assisted by Casa JoJo), we transported over a hundred pairs of children's shoes to Puerto Vallarta for distribution to the needy. Since Casa JoJo's inception, it has assisted literally thousand of children in the Puerto Vallarta area of Mexico.

The one item we like the most about Casa JoJo is that there are no administrative fees. The administrators of Casa JoJo are also volunteers and receive nothing in return. ALL of the funds donated gets where it is earmarked. I can't say that about other organizations.

I am on the board of Corazon de Nina, and Bill and Juan have made making donations to us through Casa JoJo foundation effortless. The GEM program (give every month) would be impossible if it weren't for Casa JoJo. They are a pleasure to work with on any level of giving, and more importantly, they acknowledge gifts that are made almost instantly. We are extremely lucky to be associated with Casa JoJo foundation.
