Dear Friends:

Last December it was quite a special day when we brought likely the first Christmas gifts ever to the 39 students at Ignacio Zaragoza Preschool and Juan Escuita Decima Musa Elementary School in rural Mexico.

Last Friday we came back and Rita presented each kid with his/her own goody bag filled with clothes specific to age and gender. Plus socks and a kiddie size toothbrush and toothpaste. Yes, they were very excited!

Then on to Chapa de Mota, the small village we donated the ambulance to last December. I am really pleased to say the ambulance is earning its keep. In the 71 Days since we'd donated -- December 15 to February 24 -- it had made 61 trips or almost one a day. Terrific!

And it is humbling that Chapa de Mota awarded me a nice plaque they hand out to people who made a difference in their community in 2016.

It was a very cool ceremony with bands, local folkloric dancers, etc. Very impressive! And a good feeling our little biz could make such a large difference.

We all can take baby steps in helping others.
