Valentines Day Gift!

Happy Valentines from Mayan Families! 
Dear friends,
Happy Valentines Day Monday,
February 14th, 2011.
Valentines Day is almost here!
San Antonio Preschool
Here at Mayan Families we are offering two different ways to spread the love this Valentines Day. 
First,for a small donation of only $10, one of the children in our San Antonio Feeding program will decorate a card for your loved one, and if you wish, a greeting from you.  We will then email a copy of the card to your loved one along with your personal greeting.     
The San Antonio Afternoon program provides a good meal to 50+ children, aged 6-10, who come 5 days a week after school. San Antonio was badly affected by the horrific mud slides of last year, and many of the children in the program were traumatized by the loss of their homes, possessions, or even their family members. Their bodies need the hot lunches, vitamin tablets, and healthy snacks that the program provides, but they also need the other types of support that we provide: homework help from a qualified teacher, games, puzzles, and a few hours of relaxation and stability.  

The high level of need in this community has caused the program's numbers to expand, leaving it in dire need of funding. These $10 donations will make all the difference in allowing us to continue serving these great kids. You can make your donation via paypal by going to Donate Now, entering a $10 donation into the "Other" box, and writing "Valentine" in the "Details."  To personalize the card, please email with your message and the recipient's name.
You can also do a monthly donation here, entering a donation into the "Other" box , and writing "Valentine" in the "Details."

Orders received before noon on Valentines Day (Monday) will be there by Monday evening.  We will get later orders out as fast as we can.

Second, for a donation of only $35, we will send a basket of food to your sponsored student or any family in need. This basket can feed up to 10 people and brings joy to families in need on this special day.  Upon making your paypal payment, just enter Valentines Food Basket and the name/number of your student or put for a family in need.
Thank you, and Happy Valentine's Day!
from all of us at Mayan Families. 
If you would like to help Mayan Families gain more support, please consider forwarding this e-mail to your friends, family, and colleagues. You can do a Facebook or Twitter posting, put up posters, shout from mountain tops -- get creative! Spreading the word is free, and lets the world know you think Mayan Families is doing a good job and deserves their support. It is a huge help to us and introduces our programs to people who would never hear about them otherwise.
Thank you again for your support!
