Guanacaste, Costa Rica
Help us join together to help Guanacaste, Costa Rica families and businesses to produce meals and support for all that are struggling with no employment and financial hardship during the COVID-19 crisis. This area of Costa Rica is 99% dependent on Tourism. With the whole world shut down, their livelihoods are shut down. These are hard working, loving people that had the rug pulled out from under them. Sharky's will be joined by several other restaurants in the area to use its kitchen and staff to cook-prepare meals to deliver to as many people as possible. We'll be implementing this process with respect to the recommended social distancing and health standards set by local governments. In addition to pre-prepared food, we will also be working with other organizations to deliver pantry and other essential items to those in need. We need your help to keep these families fed during this time of crisis. WE NEED LOTS OF HELP TO IMPLEMENT. Those of you in the area that are interested in this initiative or know someone who can help, please contact via text or whatsapp only to 8729-8274 #TamarindoStrong #DoMoreBeMore Thanks for caring!
One in a million- Luis Sequeira Torres Fundraiser It's not often you come across someone willing to truly serve others. That's who Luis was. He would literally give you the shirt off his back. You may know him as a great father, a great surf teacher in Tamarindo , Jaco ...or from the news a few years ago for saving someone from a croc ... Again, putting his life on the line for someone else. Luis has spent his life serving other people. Tragically, Luis passed away on February 20th. He was everything to his "little women". Luis's wife Yendri and their two beautiful girls need our help. Let's help them the way he's helped others. Luis's light shined bright and will continue to shine through his family. Let's come together and help blast that light across Guanacaste! Every little bit helps. As always, PUR will match up to $5,000 of the total money raised from all fundraisers. Let's make sure we get past that number! Thank you to everyone for helping!
A group of four of us will be heading to Haiti on December 13th. We’ll be meeting up with our partner, Farmer John’s butcher shop, to add on to the building. PUR is a 30% partner in the butcher shop. Farmer John’s is dramatically changing the definition of business in Haiti. https://www.farmerjohnshaiti.com/ To see some of the projects in Haiti, check out www.friendsofifosud.org • 80% of the proceeds go back into ministry opportunity in country. • FJ’s provides an avenue for every family with a stick and a cow/goat to bring their animal to market. Most do not have any way to get revenue from their animals… until Farmer John’s • Provides a stable source of clean protein for both high end resorts and local families in Haiti. Farmer John’s has been asked to build a facility to process and can chicken to have on site for disaster relief when hurricanes come. It’s a huge opportunity to bring revenue as well as providing assistance to those in need when disaster strikes! At a time when most people are pulling out of Haiti due to corruption, we’re wanting to double down. Without a doubt, Farmer John’s is becoming a rock for industry in Haiti to build on. This trip will be focusing on two things. • Building the cannery/processing plant for disaster relief. • Having a Christmas party at 3 schools and delivering stockings and gifts to roughly 800 kids. We’d love for you guys to get as excited about these projects as us. If you’re looking for a worthy cause to support, this is it! Long term or Christmas donations, it will all go to making a difference in Haiti. Budget: $20,000 Kid’s meals/stockings 800 at $10/child = $8,000 Building Construction (concrete only) $12,000 ish for this phase. www.purinternational.org www.farmerjohnshaiti.com www.friendsofifosud.org www.loveachild.com
The morning of Tuesday, January 26th, we received the worst news possible. Our loving brother Wendell Moe died unexpectedly in his sleep. He tested positive of Covid Friday the 22nd. Most would describe him as a devoted husband, father and friend. He was sweet and kind to everyone he came across. He loved with no limits! We will miss his sweet smile and his witty jokes. We are asking for your support to help his family through this tough time. He is survived by his wife June Moe who is currently fighting stage 4 breast cancer. Wendell and June share 6 beautiful kids between the ages of 4-18. Please whisper a prayer of comfort for the MOE family. We thank you all for your generous donations and heart of service. God Bless!!
