LOCAL FUNDRAISERS WE SUPPORT

Being Part of Our Community Means Giving Back

Please join us in raising our world up

We believe in giving back to the communities where we live and do business.  We are pleased to have raised over $20,000 MXN for Hogar Irekani Morelia, so far, with the help of Casona Rosa B&B owner Rose Calderone.  Our first Eco-Science Monarch Butterfly tour January 11-12, 2020 raised $9,000 MXN for scientific research and an extra donation of $500 Pesos will go to the NGO Butterflies & Their People.  Please also contact Rose Calderone of Casona Rosa B&B if you would like to purchase a Monarch Butterfly T-shirt, with all proceeds going to NGO Butterflies & Her People.   

HOGAR IREKANI

Children's Orphanage

Between donating Sterling Silver jewellery from Canada for a silent auction, and two Christmas Ornament Fundraisers that included making crafts with the children, we are proud of what we have raised - and want to see this number grow.  Please contact us if you would like to adopt a child for Christmas 2020.  The link below will take you to Hogar Irekani's website where you can also donate directly to the orphanage.  We have chosen Hogar Irekani due to the very organized and transparent policies of the director, Sandra Martinez.

SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH

Dr. Pablo Jaramillo Lopez

It is always wonderful to meet a scientist so passionate about their work, as is Dr. Pablo Jaramillo Lopez.  Between working full time for the university and conducting research, Dr. Pablo Jaramillo Lopez has volunteered his minimal spare time to offer educational presentations and tours, to teach guests about the Monarch butterfly habitats, and how we can assist.  All proceeds from these tours go into scientific research.  Dr. Pablo Jaramillo Lopez obtained his PHD in Canada, and has collaborated with Dr. Lincoln Brower.

LOCAL NGO

Butterflies & Her People

Local NGO Butterflies & Their People was started by Ellen & Joel of JM Butterfly, a power- couple who have dedicated their lives to assisting the survival of the Monarch Migration.  By supporting their NGO, you help provide jobs for locals who work in the reserves to monitor illegal logging activity.  The NGO was proud to have just added a 5th team member, and are working on ideas for increasing conservation-based employment in the region to offer alternatives to illegal logging and other activities.
