Mujeres Con Exito, back to school fundraising needs

It is time for our mothers to start worrying about sending their kids back to school.

Our dilemma: 22 shelter children living at Casa Mara Amor + 78 shelter children living outside the shelter x $95 = $9,500. This is the amount needed to provide our children with shoes, uniforms, underwear, backpacks and supplies. (Please note: thanks to our mailing list generosity and you wonderful people on GringoPost, we have raised $2000 of this goal since last Friday)

How you can help: We are looking for more $95 sponsors to help our kids return to school. If you can afford more, that would be great too.

If you are unable to contribute the entire amount at this time, we are also offering $20 partial sponsorships.

Scholarship payments can be made through PayPal or dropped off at Mujeres Con Exito.


Some girls are nicer than others — meet Lexi

I have a sweet-tempered teenager who deserves your best. She is possibly a collie/shepherd mix (or not) and her name is Lexi. She is the little girl in purple in the pix below.

She has already been rescued twice and, through no fault of her own, she again needs a new home urgently. Her last owner was found dead a week ago in his apartment and she was left with his body for four days without food or water until he was found. There’s a whole lot more to this story. She has an amazing past.

She also has a dedicated vet who has brought her to full health with all her shots, etc. Unfortunately, this vet (Dra Nataly Pesantez) is in New York City at this time.

I am willing to keep her for the immediate term but I cannot keep her long. Somebody needs to step in. (And somebody will be very glad they did.)

Please call with questions or if you’d like to meet her.

Kitten needs a lovely home

Please, we need your help. This kitten needs a responsible and loving home.

We found him abandoned in a village and told us that they were throwing water, hot oil, beating him, etc.

We brought him to Cuenca. We take him to the vet, he’s already dewaxed, they estimate he’s 2-3 months old.

He’s also medicated because he has dermatitis. We bought him sand, a plate and food.

Please if someone wants to adopt him or has someone looking for a kitten in their home, please contact me.

The pictures are as it was before and now.

Teachers to deliver webinar


I have always suspected there were many teachers in the Cuenca expat community and I guess this post will tell us whether that suspicion is on target or not.

We have a new client,, and Edbrix is interested in speaking with certified teachers to deliver training webinars to existing and prospective clients on their eLearning platform. The certification does not necessarily need to be current…it’s the experience that will matter most.

Edbrix has a suite of 14 different applications that together, give teachers and school districts an integrated set of tools to both develop, deliver and manage the online and face to face classroom. It’s being used at over 100 school districts in Texas by over 200,000 students and several thousand teachers. We need to train the existing teachers in a new version of one of the tools, and later this year, we will be rolling out a national marketing program.

Edbrix will pay $20 for every one-hour, or less, webinar a trainer/teacher delivers. If you, would like to know more, download a free version of the Content @ After you’ve had a chance to take a look at Contentbrix, feel free to give me a call or send an email with your contact information.

Selling a gas grill and a self-cleaning juicer

Hey guys, good morning. Hope everyone is healthy and doing good.

I’m selling a Weber Spirit gas grill

I bought it in the States and shipped it here to Ecuador when I moved. I’ve never used it, not once.

I bought it for $700 and I’m asking for $600. As I said, it’s literally brand-new, never used.

I’m also selling a self-cleaning juicer. I bought it at Walmart when I went to the States thinking that it would be useful, but then realized that a classic blender works best for me.

I’ve only used it once; I bought it for $85 and I’m asking for $65.

If anyone is interested please text me or email to send you some pictures.

Thanks so much!
Stay safe!

Gramm Bulkshop / until today; hemp seeds, special gift

Dear friends, until today, we will give you 90 grams of hemp seeds in your purchases over $25. Also, for the purchase of a pound of hemp we will give you extra 90g.

Thank you for your trust in us about our products and its benefits. We share some benefits of organic hemp with you:

Hemp seeds strengthen the immune system and provide health and vitality. It has proteins that are so easily digestible and such a perfect ratio between essential oils.

Hemp seeds contain more essential fatty acids than the seeds of any other plant. These acids are responsible for our immune response (the way the body responds to bacteria, viruses or harmful and dangerous substances) and influence our growth, vitality and mood.

Provides abundant protein, omega-3 and minerals.

It has a huge amount of vitamin E that protects cells and tissues from aging.

Hemp seed protein is more digestible than legumes and is gluten-free.

We want to reduce the use of plastic, we use paper covers and we invite you to bring your favorite bag, as well as your containers to fill them with the necessary amount.

Visit our cozy store located in Sucre 14-14 and Estevez de Toral, 099 505 9604,

We will be happy to assist you.

Recommendation for Victor Ojeda, facilitator

Last month I lost my Cedula, and discovered that you can’t live without one in Ecuador. I contacted my longtime friend and facilitator, Victor Ojeda. Over the almost 9 years living in Ecuador, Victor has helped me with a variety of needs in medical, legal, immigration, insurance, car and motorcycle purchases, just to name a few. I believe that Victor is unique in his approach to working with expats. Victor has developed contacts in just about every field you might need help with. He knows their procedures, and has copies of documents for a variety of banks and other businesses that requires forms be completed. He will save you the time of having to go and collect the forms, and help you fill them out before even visiting many of the businesses you might need to go to, saving you wasted time waiting for your turn.

When I found out the procedure needed to replace my Cedula, I knew I could not accomplish it on my own. Victor knew the procedure to a tee, and together we began the process. Three visits to the Immigration office in Azogues, two visits to the airport, a couple of trips to the bank, and a variety of copies of different documents. In addition, just the time spent in Azogues going from office to office to office inside the facility, and so on. Victor made the whole process appear seamless, but it was time consuming, and to me complicated. But in the end, I received my new Cedula, and could have never done it without Victor’s knowledge and professionalism.

If you have any needs, no matter how large or small, I highly recommend Victor. He has always shown me to be personable, reliable, sincere and caring, and my go to guy[JS1] .

Double D’s: There’s still time to order, but not much.

In this menu, we celebrate our (grand)parents’ most favorite foods. Being rural Midwesterners, vegetarian wasn’t really a thing in their time so you’ll find two meaty dishes. The BBQ sauce for the casserole is a St. Louis-style sauce–thinner and a bit more vinegary than KC-style. Mom/Grandma was known to whip up a batch of chili even on the warmest of days, and the family always loved it. We’ve modernized her recipe a bit. Strawberry Shortcake was one of their all-time favorite desserts, but Mom/Grandma loved nothing more than a Snickers bar right out of the freezer. Our sweets this week are takes on those two indulgences.

BBQ Chicken Mac & Cheese Casserole: $25 (6-8 servings); $19 (4-5 servings)
Beef & Black Bean Chili: $8/lb (2-3 servings)
Strawberry Shortcake Cupcakes: $2.50 each
Snickers Cookie Bars: $3 each

Orders are due by 3 PM today, Tuesday, August 10. When placing your order, please include the following information.
