The Boy's Cabana Project Update

I recently got the estimate for not only redoing the boy's bathroom but their entire cabana. This project, which would be all internal renovation, would make their dorm feel new, and fresh, and allow for a much more intelligent use of their space. They would have 6 new flushing toilets, a completely new shower and sinks and bigger dorm rooms with built in closets. All of this only comes to $4,500 USD. The directors gave me a very detailed price list down to the exact amount of rebar and cement blocks they thought they would need and also the estimated cost of labor.

There are two ways in which you can donate. One is through my blog with a program called Chipin (similar to Paypal), and the other is directly to Hogar via their website ( The money needs to be specifically labeled for this project if you give directly to Hogar. They are a U.S. non-profit and will be able to provide you with a reciept for your tax records.

I want to raise this money quickly so that construction can start and be finished before new boys arrive in the summer. Thank you for your donation. I can't even begin to tell you how wonderful these kids are and how much it will mean to them. Thank you!!
