Gracias a todas las personas que se tomaron el tiempo en ayudarnos y donar para esta hermosa causa. El fin de semana pasado fueron dos días que aprendí mucho. Nunca en mi vida había visto tanta felicidad y agradecimiento de madres, padres, y niños que ahorita están en albergues esperando averiguar cuál será el siguiente paso. Muchas Gracias a todas las organizaciones y negocios locales que se tomaron un tiempo en donarnos cosas para las familias. Esto se volverá a repetir!!!!!! Nuestros hermanos y hermanas requieren nuestro apoyo para sobresalir de todos los problemas y traumas que han sido parte. Todos los días estos albergues reciben docenas de gentes que ya fueron deportados o van a cruzar la frontera. Ellos están eternamente agradecidos. Gracias a todos!!!!!!!!
Thanks you to all the people who took their time to help and donate to this beautiful cause. Last weekend were two days that marked my life forever. Never in my life have I experienced so much happiness and gratitude from mothers, fathers, and children who reside in shelters waiting to find out what the next step in their lives will be. Many thanks to all the local organizations and businesses that took time to donate goods for families, children, and individuals. We will repeat this efforts again!!!!! Our brothers and sisters require our support to overcome all problems and traumas they have been a part of. On a day to day basis these shelters receive dozens of people who have already been deported or are going to cross the border. They are grateful for the initiative we took. Thank you all!!!!!!!!
Special thanks to Bea Balsamo, Joe, and Sue Breazeale for delivering the goods and the rest of TIA (Taos Immigration Allies). Attached please find a couple of pictures from the trip. Feel free to include and pass it along anyone I might of forgotten.
