Avispa’s Adventures held it’s 1st annual Christmas party in a small “barrio” outside of Playas del Coco on December 25, 2007. It was a great success thanks to all of you. Special thanks go out to everyone that brought donations threwout the year. As a result of all of your contributions, together, we were able to provide gifts to over 125 under privileged kids and feed over 160 people. (Pictures still to come!)
School supplies and new/used clothing were distributed to over 15 families at the beginning of February.
A Special Thanks goes out to:
The Barrett Family: Financial Donation
The Crawley Family: Their Financial Contribution, donation of used clothing and their hands on participation during the preparation and party itself made this party a success. * This family also brought to Costa Rica the majority of the donations provided by the following:
Kal Tire– Donations included: clothing and nick/knacks
Linda Shields : Financial Contribution and a Donation of 2 bikes.
Osmar Urbina: Donation of a bike.
Les Hemmingsen & Bruce McMichael.: Donation of a bike.

Avispa’s Adventures continues to collect school supplies and new/ used toys, clothing and household items. New items will be kept for Christmas 2008 and used items will be distributed as the need arises. (Unless other preferences are made by the donating individual)
AVISPAS ADVENTURES would like to invite you to assist us in helping the communities/ community members less fortunate.
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
Most people traveling on vacation pack a suitcase…and a carry on…however people traveling from overseas are usually allowed:
2 check bags, (usually up t0 50 LBS and 62 inches)
1 carry-on AND
1 personal item (Purse, back-pack, computer bag, brief case) –
PLEASE CHECK WITH YOUR AIRLINE/CHARTER COMPANY FOR SPACIFIC INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR BAGGAGE ALLOWANCE!
If you have any items that you would like to donate you could bring them in your extra bag. (…and have plenty of room to take your souvenirs home with you!) You can give it to us to distribute for you or if you more comfortable you can distribute your donations directly…Whatever you would like!
New items will probably be distributed at Christmas…if that is OK with you.
Immediate Items can include:
New/Used Household items
Non perishable food items
Items for Christmas can include:
New School Supplies (The school year is from Feb-Dec but some kids do not start in Feb because they cannot afford their school supplies)
