Your Valentine's Love

Thanks to you, we are making progress, but Julian is still in grave danger of becoming permanently disabled if he does not have surgery within a week but you can help with the purchase of Valentine's roses.

Let your purchase of roses for your love spread love to a young family in need. Trebol Roses is generously donating 100% of your $10 purchase of a dozen roses for Valentine’s Day towards Julian’s surgery. Your roses will be available for pick up at the Trebol Roses office (Otorango Plaza) on Friday. You can pay when you pick them up. To place your order, please contact Karla Sanchez at 096 904 1385.

Dr. Santiago Romo, whom many of you know, has offered to perform the surgery at a greatly discounted cost, but the specialized hardware needed to save Julian's leg is expensive. The additional damage to his leg is extensive and the conventional rods and screws available will not work.

We need to raise $7,000 this week. This will cover the anesthesiologist, materials, surgical suite, and post-op therapy. This translates to 50 of you good people donating $100, or 25 of you donating $200, or 10 of you donating $500. Whatever you can donate will be greatly appreciated. We have raised $1,645 thus far, so it is doable.

Gofundme is the best way for our friends in the States to donate and you can read Julian's story there:

Jane Miner will be at the soup kitchen today from 10 AM - noon to collect donations (enter the old cloisters area of the church at Padre Aguirre y Presidente Cordova), then at El Santo until 1:30. El Santo is just down from Sunrise, same side Sunrise but closer to Padre Aguirre.

Des will be at the Soup Kitchen on Thursday from 10 AM – 2 PM.
Thank you all in advance.

If you would like to donate in another way, please contact Des and Bill at, Smith at, or Jane at
