Celebrating Día de Los Reyes

The owners of Mezcal Real Minero in Santa Catarina Minas invited us to participate in their annual Día de Los Reyes event in 2015. They were seeking a sponsor to bring toys for the children in their community. So we recruited our friends to help, and together we gathered and brought to Oaxaca more than 150 toys. By plane. Customs loved us. We participated again in 2016, but asked that the children write us letters with specific requests. The first year was fun; receiving specific requests was touching. So many of the children asked for bicycles, so that they could get to school. One girl wanted the bke so she could get to school early ... so that she could study and grow up to be a doctor ... so she could make sure no other little girl's mother died, as hers had. We brought gifts again in 2016 and 2017. Special thanks to Masa Azul, an outstanding restaurant in Chicago who hosted an annual toy drive to help us gather the gifts for Día de Los Reyes, and to Erick Rodriguez of Almamezcalera, who helped us fill in the holes at a toy market in Mexico City.
