I wanted to help Tacogirl spread the word about two great events happening this month on Ambergris Caye. There will be two fundraiser events benefiting Mama Vilma's Family Home and Liberty Children's Home that you will not want to miss. 

Starting this weekend the St. IV and V class at the lsland Academy is having a garage sale on Saturday, May 12th from 9:00am until 12 noon and it  will be located on the lot next to Asian Garden Spa.

They need garage sale items, so if you have any donations, they can be dropped off at Asian Garden Spa until now until May 11th. All proceeds of this sale go to Mama Vilma's Family Home and Liberty Children's Home.

Mama Vilma’s Family Home provides disenfranchised families and children with temporary housing, food, medical care, counseling and education to foster their connection with the San Pedro community and assist with developing a strong family unit.

Liberty Children’s Home is a sanctuary for children in need, providing a natural loving, nurturing environment, and a high standard of education. Situated in Ladyville, on the outskirts of Belize City, Belize, Central America. Liberty is a refuge for abused, neglected and abandoned children from throughout Belize.  It is unique in its commitment to child-centered care and education.

Liberty's philosophy has been influenced by the Pikler method of childcare, a well-researched approach developed to prevent the damaging effects of institutionalization on children. Liberty also draws from the Reggio Emilia and Montessori methods that aim for the fullest possible development of the child-centered care.

Another fundraiser that you don't want to miss will be Sunday, May 27th.  There will be a BBQ, Silent Auction and Hula-Hooping contest at Pedro's Inn starting at 12 noon (Belize time of course).  Lots of fun for the whole family.  This event is to raise money for the ongoing activities of Liberty Children's Home.  Event sponsors are Pedro's Inn and Island Academy, with special thanks going to Belize Bank.
