Christmas Toy Drive for Ecuadorian kids in mountain villages

For twenty years, Grace Ordonez, Cuenca DDS, has been gathering toys and clothing donated by Cuencanos and herself and delivering them to unsuspecting Ecuadorian children in Ecuador’s mountain villages. This year, Grace would like to expand the program with more donations to bring joy to even more children.

Donating toys and clothing and “giving with Grace” will be even easier than in the past - and way more fun - by attending our donation party on Saturday, November 12, 2016 from 4 PM – 6 PM in the auditorium of the Workcenter building at Paucarbamba y Miguel Cordero. Your toy contribution(s) are your admission. Get all the details from the attached flyer or at

At the party, there will be beer, wine and apple cider, free appetizers, and music by Cuenca expat’s favorite crooner, Umberto Ballone, including Christmas Carol sing-alongs. All toy contributors will also receive a digital photo collection of this year surprise deliveries to the children.

If you cannot attend the donation party, you can drop-off donations any weekday at Grace’s office in the Workcenter building (see above) between now and December 16th between either 9 AM - Noon or 2:30 PM to 5 PM.

Again, see all the party details at If you have questions, please email

For our planning purposes, please reserve via an email to For the party, just put “toy drive party” in the subject line. To indicate that you’ll drop off a donation at the office, put “office drop-off” in the subject line. No other information is needed.

November 12, 2016 from 4 PM to 6 PM, donation, Workcenter Building: Paucarbamba y Miguel Cordero, Cuenca.
