They say that which doesn’t break you makes you stronger. It’s hard for us to wrap our heads around all that’s happened here in Mexico over the past month. The storms that once again crashed our Cabo shores and then the devastating earthquake in Mexico City. While the earthquake did not directly affect us, it broke our hearts.
For anyone who wants to give to the rebuilding and humanitarian efforts happening around Mexico, we ask that you do so safely. Your hard-earned money should be going to the hands of those in need, and not into the hands of scammers or shady non-profit organizations.
