Thank you to everyone who has contributed so far. On Thanksgiving we closed the sale of the land and Kids Up is now the proud owner of our own property. We are waiting for the estimate on putting up a fence across the back 60 feet so that trucks won't continue to dump. Our first wall will be 4 feet of block with chain link fencing on top. We have to put up something strong to keep our neighbors bulls out.

We will be in the same area where we are now. You take the road to Las Planes/Bahia de Los Muertos or Suenos, but instead of turning right you turn left. Yes, we are on top of he hill of garbage, but at least in our small spot we are going to do something about that. We chose this area for several reasons. The land was very inexpensive and close to town. It has a beautiful view, and the neighborhood is very safe. There are two roads into the neighborhood. Its a very close community. And to enter Kids Up you have to pass the house of Don Julian and his family.

Don Julian is selling us the land. I met him on a trail ride. He told me he owned the possession (the land rights) of where we ride and that we were welcomed to move our operation to his land. But I never got his phone number. Several weeks passed and we looked everywhere for this elusive guy. We met other people in the neighborhood, had other offers for land (outrageously expensive offers). And then suddenly he showed up.

"Look," he said, " I've been asking the boss (God) who by the way I don't know very well, if I should do this. I'm thinking about selling you the area where I have my animals which is behind my house. But I told Him, the Boss that if you were going to be trouble I don't want any part of it. But here you are, so I guess its safe to do it."

So... here we are.

140 TOYS FOR KIDS PLEASE HELP ME Very good day everyone, I am in a social project for my community in a region of my country (Venezuela), where due to the strong economic and political situation, many children will not be able to obtain their gifts from the long awaited Christmas and for all these dates are very special because it represents the sharing and love of people, the reason for this is to give those children that smile that both make the world happy and see that despite the difficulties, we can live unforgettable and unique moments. Our goal is to raise funds to buy at least 140 toys for the children of the community. paypal.me/LuisAvb

Thank you so much Sylvia and Irene. I don’t check for a while and look what happens! Than you both so much for your kind words and your prayers. It really does make a difference in our kids lives, but also we have a new employee, Don Efraim. He is disabled as well. He lives across the street with his sister. When she asked if he could help us out we thought, of course! He’s an amazing worker and a delight to be around. What a blessing!

This is such a worthwhile organization! We have personally watched the transformation of a child, and also the horse, once the child has been put on it's back. The horse, which was skittish, immediately calmed down when the child hugged it's mane, and the child sat up straight, which was difficult for him, and he was laughing and smiling. It brought tears to our eyes to see the effect they had on each other. Please help support them!
