A good cause

By June 13, 2009 Insights

In San Miguel, there is no lack of opportunity to support a good cause no matter what your passion. Last week, I attended a fundraiser for the local Waldorf school. San Miguel also has a fast growing organic food movement so many (actually I think, most) of the local organic farms and restaurants partnered in the event, raising awareness not only for creative education, but sustainability as well.

One may question whether donating pesos to benefit an alternative private school is more worthy than supporting the many families whose survival depends on their children selling Chiclets in the streets. Personally I think we’re obligated to do what we can wherever we can if it involves benefitting the children who are our future.
