Safety improvements for Paidi Foster Home - September 2019
Value of the Donation: $2,500 US
We’re happy to support the safety of the children to the best of our capacities and with the blessing of your help (our donors). Casa Paidi foster home is located in Mexico City, and it has been victim of several robberies, which endanger the children, staff and property. A good solution to prevent further incidents was to reinforce the protection surrounding the children. Thanks to your kind donations, a safer place was created for these vulnerable children. Thank you!
Greenhouse Donation for Casa de la Divina Providencia - August 2019
Value of the Donation: $2,400 US
In order to improve the results of the “Germinating Ties” program ran in Mexico City with our partner non-profit OLAKAC, there was a need to improve the hand-made orchard and evolve it into a greenhouse like the one donated to Casa Betti. Thanks to the contributions of all our donors and with the match dollar-for-dollar from our CEO Andrew Kluger, the new greenhouse was setup on the month of August. The elders were eager to participate in the setup. The men, despite their age, wanted to shovel and mix the sustrate for the sowing beds, while the women got busy transplanting the new sprouts and watering them. They are very happy and excited to have this new, professional, wheelchair-accesible, protected space that will bring better harvest to their kitchen.
Books and Boardgames donation to Paidi Foster Home in Mexico City - October 2018
Value of the Donation: $500 US
After the inauguration of the donated orchard, Dr. Kluger met with the 14 visiting children from Paidi foster home that were participating that day in the Germinating Ties projects (which Bookbank USA helps fund along with your help, thank you). By conversing with them he learned about their interests and goals, and the following week he donated them 14 “El Árbol” book and 14 board / teamplaying games.
“On Tiptoes / De Puntitas” October 2018
Illustrated two-in-one children’s storybook
Value of the Donation: $5,000 US
Catalina Verónica Monterrubio, an acclaimed author, presents together with Book Bank USA a new bilingual two-in-one story book for children ages 5 to 8 y/o, beautifully illustrated by Gabriela García. In it, two stories are narrated: one tells the story of Sasha de Sola, Prima Ballerina of the San Francisco Ballet, from her early years to her present day. The other story, fictional, narrates the story of a boy that sees her dancing as a girl and falls in love with her and with ballet, thus choosing it as a career in hopes of someday dancing together with her. Both stories have a deeper, universal teaching beyond “ballet”, that focuses on overcoming obstacles by focusing on inner strength and perseverance.
