Mission: Manto de guadalupe serves the less fortunate in our local communities and around the world by providing food, clothes, education, and hope. The organization also provides informational conferences while at the same time creating awareness and promoting action among our society to participate through mutual goals.
Programs: 1. Pilgrimage to mexico: as a result from the success we had last year, we received requests to do another trip to mexico. The pilgrimage to mexico city had the purpose of promoting values among participants as well as participating in several educational conferences and other activities that helped them learn, be inspired to help others, and be able to meet other like minded people with whom they could team up to help others in their local communities. 17 people from several different countries participated. An entity in mexico paid for 10,000 of the costs of this event. Those costs, along with the implied contribution, are not recognized in the form 990. 2. Los angeles convention: we had a convention where 25 supporters of our organization from several different countries came to los angeles to hear more about what our organization does, participate in some of our projects and activities, attend conferences, and meet other fellow supporters. The convention helped promote values and raise awareness while engaging an important base of supporters. 3. Taking food, clothes, and giving hope to homeless people in downtown los angeles. We took food and clothes to downtown los angeles along with volunteers and some known celebrities. Our goal was to provide food and/or clothes to total of 1,200 people during our visits as well as trying to give hope to those less fortunate and create awareness within our society.
