Thanks, Jim, for your offer to make another donation to the Playa Limpia Initiative, and to all others who have donated to this cause. Tierralegre, A.C. is waiting to hear back regarding some potential funding for this project for this upcoming year. Meanwhile, we still have a little bit of funding left for this project from individual donors who have contributed to this cause over this last year.
We are certainly excited to hear that our application for technical support, etc. has been accepted by Engineers Without Borders!
Anyone interested in donating to the Playa Limpia Initiative fund can do so through the PayPal account that Mary Jo has set up, or through Tierralegre whereby you can also receive a U.S. tax deductible receipt, or a tax deductible receipt for Mexico, if that is important to you. You have a couple easy options listed below. NOTE: Make sure to earmark all donations for the “Playa Limpia Initiative.”
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: U.S. tax-deductible donation link
2. 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.
3. 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).
Any questions, please get in touch with me by e-mail or on my Mexican cell: (315) 104-5442, or my U.S. line: (865-230-7995)
Together as a community we can insure that our beach and the surrounding aquatic ecosystems are clean, safe and sustainable for years to come!
