What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


Somewhere safe and comfortable to sleep at night

How important is a good night's sleep? Just imagine how important that is for an orphan, who has witnessed the most terrible things in their young life. We want to raise enough money to provide them with comfy beds, soft sheets and the bedroom they deserve.

The communal bedrooms are in need of refurbishment, and that's why we would so appreciate your donations. Even five dollars, or ten euros goes a long way in Mexico, and we can't wait to share photos of the new bedrooms with you all.

The people who run the orphanage out of their love for the kids have set up a facebook page where you can see more about their work:

Thank you in advance for your kind donations - these children are so loving and deserving. This is a major step in helping them back into a normal life.


Comienzos mission - to rescue children from 0-12 years old who live in extreme poverty, are abandoned or abused, at risk of falling into alcoholism, prostitution or delinquency.

Comienzos vision - to see children living at serious social disadvantage begin to live a wholesome life.

Comienzos objective - take in children and give them the opportunity to begin a new life, preventing future delinquency.

A little goes a long way in Mexico, and everything at the orphanage is funded by kind donations from local people, and those of us abroad lucky to be living in privileged circumstances.
