Children's Day in Guatemala

Children's Day in Guatemala is celebrated on October 1st. 
It is a big occasion and getting bigger every year.
The local council is holding a big party for children in front of their offices.
They will have pinatas and entertainment.
They have been collecting money and goods from different business and organizations.
Mayan Families has  donated one pinata to them.
Today our pre school in Panajachel is celebrating with their fiesta. 
They have chuchitos and Jello in little bags.
They will all be receiving a little stuffed toy to celebrate Children's Day....thank goodness for Beanie Babies!!!!
We are also having all the children in our Orphan program at the office today.
They will be receiving clothes, shoes , underwear  socks, toothpaste and toothbrushes.
Thank you to everyone who sends these goods so that we are able to give these much needed items to these children.
The children are also seeing the doctor and receiving vitamins. 
We have found that many of the children in the program....need help with food.  If you would like to donate a bag of food....just $10 will make a difference to these children, we can give it out to them today.
