Re: The Otra Vez challenge...
Thank you so much, Stephanie and Otra Vez. So--you will match our donations up to $20,000 pesos? That's wonderful! I'm not sure that people realize how much it costs for our basic expenses for the ambulance. The crew gets paid $800 pesos for every call, so, for example, last night we were called out to a serious accident on the highway. Because of the seriousness, three crew members went out. That means we need $2400 pesos just for last night. Over the month of December alone we had 12 calls. The cost for those calls was approximately $15,000 pesos. The board members and I are working on forming a foundation for the ambulance which will enable us to apply for grants and to get larger donations, but in the meantime, we count on your donations. Please be generous to help us meet the Otra Vez Challenge!
