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 $3000 of this goal since last Friday)

High rates of return + safety/security

Because many GringoPost readers may not be familiar with Cooperco, I’d like to introduce this exceptional co-operative to you. Established in Cuenca in 1965, Cooperco has, until now, been focused almost exclusively on servicing the Cuencano community. That exclusive emphasis has begun to shift. In addition to continuing to serve the Cuencano community Cooperco, in 2020, expanded its capability to now include a strong initiative serving Cuenca’s international community. Starting from a decidedly strong base, Cooperco has only grown stronger. It is the cooperative that offers CDs with not only high rates of return but unparalleled safety and security of principal. That’s a combination that is hard to beat.

Recommendation for M & E Pet Lovers, pet sitting

We were taking a 4-day trip and needed someone to watch our two dogs. We took the advice of you all here in GringoPost and contacted, eventually hired, Elizabeth and Mateo and could not have been happier with that decision. These guys are amazing when it comes to pet sitting and the general well-being of animals. They updated us daily on what they were doing and how our dogs were acting, even sent pictures! In fact, they notified us that one of our dog’s medications was running out and that they had purchased more so that our dog did not miss a day without it. Absolutely amazing! If any of you need pet sitting you have to at least check out these guys. Give them a call, please. You won’t go wrong.
