Baja Bound's one and only Nati gathered a group of family and friends to celebrate her 23rd birthday Puerto Rican style. At just 23 Nati is our youngest house build organizer. She's been volunteering with Baja Bound now for 3 years and has an incredible heart for the people of Baja. Her weekend was spent with people who travelled across thousands of miles to help her celebrate and do what she does best and that's love the working poor. Here are her highlights.
They just keep coming back! I think they like us....or maybe they love the impact they're having on these precious and valuable people! This weekend was filled with cars so full of groceries for needy families we couldn't close the doors, sticky fingers from patching leaky roofs, dirty shoes from soccer, dirt stained cheeks from the tears of stories of hardship, splintered fingers and love. Did we mention is was The Greatness Foundation founders birthday!? Happy birthday Mike Sherbakov!
Check out amazing views of our beach house and the build experience, including tacos! Thank you Dennis Walker for capturing this for us!
Over the years we have encountered some exceptional young men and women while working around Baja. We have grieved over the reality that many talented young children in Baja will never reach their full academic potential. Guess what: we have decided to do something BIG about this. We have set a goal of raising funds to support 25 exceptional young students per year. If this sounds interesting we could use your financial support right now. Click here
Our dear friend Cindy decided to celebrate her 40th Birthday by gathering her friends and family to join her in gifting a single mom and her children with a new home. This weekend was a beautiful picture of how we can all be agents of change! What a perfect balance of serving alongside your favorite friends, giving hope to a precious family, celebrating a beloved friend's birthday and delighting in the rugged beauty of this region.
"What a memorable Memorial Day weekend" our team had as they labored alongside one another in record time to complete this home for Antonio and his beloved family! 14 people are now in a safe, clean environment and we are so thrilled to announce that we will be building a second house for them later this summer! Thankful for the provision of generous souls like the ones pictured below...
