In the province of Guanacaste, almost 13,000 families live in extreme poverty and their children probably won’t receive a gift for Christmas. These families live on ¢88,000 (about $165) per month, an amount that is barely enough for food.

That is why several organizations in Nicoya, Nosara and Samara are collecting funds and gifts, to bring joy to those who have less. Here we share the details of the entities that are looking for sponsors to encourage you to contribute.
