Hope House Home for Boys

The cards that I sell here in Chapala and Ajijic, Mexico benefit the dental program for the boys at Hope House in the nearby village of Ixlahuacan. There are close to 30 boys at the home and many of them come to the home having received no dental treatment. If you live here at Lakeside and would like to order a quality, hand crafted card for a special occasion and help me contribute to this worthy cause, please e-mail me at bettyinchapala@yahoo.com Card price is 50 pesos; the entire sales price is donated to Hope House.

Sweet Surprises

Just wanted to let you all know about a change I've made in the selling of my cards. I have stopped going to the Monday Market each week. Well, actually I still go to a Monday market, but it is the local street market held in Chapala each week. I've missed being able to buy my fruits and vegetables here each week because I had to be present at the other market to sell cards. This past week I began selling my cards at a local gift shop, Diane Pearl. Check out the link to see some of the beautiful things she sells at her shop. I count myself fortunate that she wants to offer my cards in her shop -- please pray that the cards will be good sellers and I will end up making even more money for the Hope House boys home! Her shop has a wonderful location in the village of Ajijic which is a popular weekend getaway for folks who live in Guadalajara. So, I'm trying to beef up my supply of cards with Spanish sentiments in order to appeal to the Spanish speaking tourists.

Thanks for your encouragement in the past -- my donations, combined with those of many others, have provided much needed dental care for many young boys; some who have never even seen the inside of a dental clinic!
