All Children Deserve to Dream

Did you know about our Hearts of Gold, All Children Deserve to Dream program? This program is about fulfilling the dreams of the beneficiary children, many of whom have lived in a state of vulnerability all their lives, so we encourage them to set short, medium and long-term goals, in addition to increasing their self-esteem and that of their parents to know that with effort they can achieve what they set out to do.

For this 2022 we have many dreams waiting to be fulfilled. One of them may be to go to the beach, or to be able to enter college. Yo others that may sound very simple like having a ball, going for an ice cream for the first time. As you may have noticed, fulfilling a child’s dream does not require supernatural powers, only a big heart of gold, so I invite you to be part of this program and share the magic of dreams together.

Innocent victim of traffic accident

My name is Rick and I am raising funds for a prosthesis for Italo. He lost his lower leg recently when a motorcycle crashed into him while he was waiting to cross the street.
The prosthesis costs $6000 so his family is hosting a bingo and hopes to raise $4000 but needs help with the rest. His son, Max, attends Cetap-Lucy, “where I volunteer”, and helps out at the Grill and Bakery Lucy in Chilcapamba.

Cash donations can be picked up by me or you can use gofundme:

Total is now $581. $290 donated offline. Have given the total to Italo. He has $5000 of the $6000 needed for the prosthesis.

Thank you to all the donors.

Marley and Tipper

Tipper and Marley are two adorable doggies that need to retire from life on the farm. Unfortunately, they attack the chickens and harass the cows. They are, however, excellent guard dogs and only bark at strange and out of the ordinary things. With a little training they could transition into becoming good companion animals as well as useful guard dogs.

They are accustomed to living outdoors with proper shelter during inclement weather. They do love to be inside though.

They are both 2.5 years old and sterilized. Tipper and Marley are very sweet and deserve good homes. They are both leash trained.

If you would like to meet Tipper and Marley, please contact me.

Please contact me with what you think, and your fees. I will be taking them to vet to get nails trimmed–if you can do this, a plus.

Bernan’s Home Canned Foods

Hope you’re staying safe and healthy… Bernie and I are staying out of harm’s way. We have been fully vaccinated and always have our masks when leaving our apartment. I guess we have just gotten so used to wearing them, that if we get to our elevator without them, we automatically feel like something is missing.

This month we got a nice supply of tomatillos to make Salsa Verde with. We have 10 jars in stock so if you would like some let me know quick… it won’t last long. Our Salsa Verde is in 500 ml. jars for $4. We also received more Hatch green chilies so we feel more comfortable about advertising them. I really hate it when we have to tell someone that we are out of something.

Because Bernie is staying busy in the kitchen… the pantry is staying full. We have had discussions about going into a full retirement but he is still not ready. He truly loves what he does… from shopping for the items, to cooking them and canning them, and making deliveries, but I believe especially just being out there talking to all of you about his passion. I’m sure that day will be coming but not in the near future…

If you are new to Cuenca or just misplaced or need a new product list… just send me and email and I’ll be happy to send one off to you.
As always, we hope to see you soon!

Gramm Bulkshop / nutritional yeast

Dear friends, we share some information about nutritional yeast:

This yeast is grown specifically to be used as a food product. The yeast cells are killed during manufacturing and not alive in the final product. It is used in cooking and has a cheesy, nutty or savory flavor.

To produce nutritional yeast, S. cerevisiae cells are grown for several days on a sugar-rich medium like molasses. The yeast is then deactivated with heat, harvested, washed, dried, crumbled and packaged for distribution.
