I´ve received some queries regarding options on how to donate to the Playa Limpia Initiative. Here´s the info:
If you are interested in donating specifically to the "Playa Limpia Initiative" which will be used first for the priority of implementing constant water testing and to bring Engineers Without Borders to La Manzanilla this summer to help solve our sewage system problem; and after that for all things that need to be done in order to achieve the international Blue Flag Certification (these items can be found at: Blue Flag Certification Page at: http://www.blueflag.org/menu/criteria/beaches); you have a couple easy options listed below. NOTE: Make sure to earmark all donations for the “Playa Limpia Initiative.”
1. If you´d like to simply make a donation to this cause and are not worried about receiving a tax-deductible donation, then you can personally drop your donation by the Tierralegre office at María Asunción 49-A in front of Lidia´s Mini Market. Please get in touch with me first by e-mail or on my cell: (315) 104-5442, to make arrangements.
2. If you´d like to make a donation within Mexico and receive a Mexico tax-deductible receipt which is honored in Mexico and many other countries, then you can either drop it by the office following the instructions above or you can make a deposit directly to the Tierralegre Banamex account which is set up exclusively for this fund. In this case, the account number is: 8433582; the sucursal is: 7002; and the Clabe Interbancario is: 002385700684335826. Note that in kind donations are also accepted—e.g., water testing equipment, etc. (but check with us first to see if the in kind donation is something we can actually use for the cause).
3. If you'd like to make a US tax-deductible donation please visit our “Friends of Fund” page on the International Community Foundation website—where you will find various options, including paying with a credit card online, for donating—at: [url=http://donate.icfdn.org/#npo/tierralegre-a-c ]Tierralegre Friends of Fund Page
Thank you in advance to all interested in donating for your support with this cause, and special thanks to Guillermo Garcia-Cabrero for his recent generous donation!
Any questions, please get in touch with me by e-mail or on my cell: (315) 104-5442. ¡Muchísimas gracias!
