As the new year approaches, we wanted to celebrate the highlights of the one about to pass.
It’s been a big year here at San Juan Live. Our traffic has doubled compared to the previous year, we’ve added hundreds of new subscribers to our email lists, we launched the San Juan Live Real Estate Marketplace, completely overhauled our learning centers, and hosted our first funding flash mob to support local non-profits.
We also published a wide range of content to help our readers get the most out of San Juan del Sur and Nicaragua. We feel fortunate that so many people are turning to us to learn about the experiences and lifestyles on offer in this sunny part of the world.
Hope that the days to come will be better than the season that past. Hope that compassion will eclipse cruelty. Hope that abundance will win out over poverty. Hope that health will heal. Hope that a better education will ultimately result in an improved living condition.
Hope changes everything.
Through our recent holiday fundraising campaign we were able to donate $1,515 dollars to various non-profits in San Juan del Sur with your help.
Together we bought 11 Christmas buckets filled with food and household essentials for the Rancho Chilamate food drive, school books for Escuela Adelante, kindle tablets for access to higher education for the San Juan Day School, library supplies for the Biblioteca Mobile, and much needed classroom essentials for the Manos Unidas co-op of people with disabilities.
Thanks for helping us give the gift of hope this holiday season. We couldn’t have done it without your generosity.
Here at San Juan Live we’re conscious of the magnitude of need in Nicaragua. The good news is that there’s a group of wonderful non-profits and socially conscious businesses that try very hard to support the local community and make a real difference to local lives.From supplemental education for youth and programs for people with disabilities, to environmental awareness and animal care, you’ll find a program with a heart for just about every need in San Juan del Sur.
But while their missions may be different, they all have one thing in common… the need for additional funding.
The work that these programs do is vital to the wellbeing and development of the local community. Which is why this holiday season San Juan Live is hosting a “Flash Mob” of festive fundraising and everyone is invited to join!
