El Zonte is a beautiful beach town on the coast of El Salvador. It's lovely people have been highly challenged by the economic shutdown, the massive tropical storm in early June, and the looming threat of illness.
During the quarantine, local organizations created food donation programs, which I had the fortune of being a part of. I was able to see, first hand, the direct benefit of even the smallest donations. We were able to purchase the basic necessities in bulk, stretching the dollars in a very efficient way.
September is the first month when people are able to go back to work, so some people will need to wait until October to get their first paycheck. I would like to help fill the gap by providing food to our community of El Zonte.
We have had so many good times here, enjoying the surf and the beaches. The kindness of the locals has been heart-warming in an ongoing way, and I'd like to give back during this unique period of need.
I have teamed up with Alex Novoa (Esencia Nativa) and Nette Klement ( Salty Souls ) to source/distribute the food. In September this campaign is focusing on food and some basic roof repairs for those that were affected by the typhoon. The doctor visits & medicines are now being funded separately through our connection with the Bitcoin Beach charity.
For the September food drive, we'll be including:
My gratitude for all donations is immense. Thank you SO much!!
