Fundraising Update

Thanks to your generous donations,the Corazon de Luz team have currently raised enough money to provide photo packets to 311 families.They still have a little way to go, so please support them by telling your friends, your family, your work or school and your neighbors about this great cause.

They will be fundraising for another 3 weeks to reach their goal – to provide 600 families with family photos.

How to Donate
As a reminder (you still have time) you can donate to this project using credit card or paypal here

And of course, if you are in Oaxaca, you can also just drop into the En Via office, the corner of Niños Heroes and Avenida Juárez that opens to a beautiful garden. Just ask someone in the front office to direct you to us.

Community Update:

Jodi has started telling people in the different communities about the project and the plans for a photo ‘studio’ day.

She says that the women she has mentioned it to are very excited about the prospect of a family photo to display in their houses. The first question they have is ‘when?‘ and they look around for their children, in case she is doing it right now, and they might miss out.

Join us!

in getting behind this initiative! Tell your friends, your school, your family and others about this fundraising project so the team can reach their fundraising goal!

Donations will help give a family in Santo Domingo Tomaltepec, Abasolo, Tlaochuaya, Teotitlan del Valle, San Miguel del Valle or Diaz Ordaz a lasting memory and preserve a piece of their family history for future generations to see.

We will keep you updated on the photo days through this blog. Stay tuned!
