Hola everyone! Thank you so much to all of you who participated in the Little by Little campaign which ran from April 4-7. We had excellent results. Among our three projects on the Global Giving platform, (Feeding Hungry Families, Brightening the Lives of Children and Educational Scholarship Support) we raised $540 in direct donations and we received $220 from the 50% match offered by Global Giving. Together they produced a total of $760 that is now available to help us continue our philanthropic work in our community. Your continued generosity and commitment is so very much appreciated.
If you were not able to make a donation during the Campaign but would like to help support this important work, you can make a donation using any of the links below. Though a donation now will not have the benefit of the special 50% match, all ongoing financial support is important and always welcomed.
A reminder of the Recurring Donation Program: When you make a recurring donation to a project, after four consecutive donations, Global Giving will gift us an amount equal to one month’s donation. This is a great way to amplify our efforts and also provide predictability to our ability to consistently support our designated projects.

Because of CAA members’ and friends’ consistent and ongoing generosity, CAA is able to explore other organizations who might be in need of food support funding. As a result, Linda D. and Mary Lou H. met with Johana Caldahar, Hogarcito Director on April 13 to discuss the orphanage’s food support needs. We agreed to provide them with 50,000 colones per month, starting this month, April, and going through the end of the year to purchase fruits and vegetables and other foods they buy on a weekly basis. This will allow 50,000 colones of the money they receive from the government to be redirected from their food budget to pay for other worthwhile and needed items. They were most grateful and appreciative for our support. The Hogarcito works hard to meet all the needs of the children, who seem lively and happy. Just take a look at the wonderful photos on their Facebook page! https://www.facebook.com/Hogarcitosanramon. CAA is glad to be able to help them.
With much gratitude for all that you do,
The Sustainability Committee
