This month Sayulita Life has chosen to donate to SayulitAnimals-- a non-profit animal welfare organization in Sayulita focused on assisting rescuers who find stray animals, reducing overpopulation of stray cats and dogs in Sayulita, and providing foster homes / assisting in the adoption of abandoned animals. During these difficult times with Covid-19, SayulitAnimals has been struggling to afford to pay for their free spay/neuter program they provide to our community, and have had difficulty in maintaining their permanent spay/neuter clinic. Sayulita Life’s cash donation will go directly toward assisting these causes. Others can help get involved too! Read more to find out about SayulitAnimals’ overall mission, and about how you can help get involved and donate to their cause.

This month’s donation recipient from Sayulita Life goes to Pro Sayulita as they continue to work closely with lawyers and environmental specialists to stop the new IMPLAN Development Plan for Sayulita. We are all aware of the difficult times we are facing due to Covid-19, but in order to continue forward with this project, the community of Sayulita needs additional funds; Pro Sayulita’s goal is to raise $25,000 USD. Sayulita Life’s donation will go toward raising funds to help our community stop this development plan, also known as the “Saving Sayulita Project”. The economy will surely be affected negatively by this plan if it is not stopped, opening the doors of IMPLAN for "special favors" to be asked, like the approval of illegal constructions, and taking advantage of height limits on new builds.

Sayulita Life’s recipient of our monthly donation for June was split between two groups: the Gavilanes Vigilantes and Luis Verdin’s Group, “La Huerta”. The Gavilanes Vigilantes have been volunteering to protect our pueblo during the outbreak of Covid-19 by guarding filters and security checkpoints to ensure our town remained safe & secure. Sayulita Life’s donation to this group, for the second month in a row, went toward purchasing food & supplies to help sustain the volunteers working long, tiring shifts, 24 hours a day. Luis Verdin is a Sayulita local who created the group “La Huerta”. His primary goal is to buy fresh fruit and vegetables at lower costs directly from the producers, in order to then create food baskets at reduced prices for those in economic need here in Sayulita. Sayulita Life’s donation went toward purchasing 25 bags of fruits and vegetables which helped 25 local families in need.

Are you finding yourself bored during quarantine? Get the family together and spend some time trying out a new and fun recipe!. Everyone loves a good batch French fries; this recipe, however, for “Avocado Fries” is a healthier take on the classic and beloved snack, that everyone in the family will surely love! The best part is that it’s always Avocado season in Sayulita! I had not even heard of avocado fries until a couple of weeks ago; my husband and I happened upon them on the menu at one of the beach restaurants here in Sayulita! Being a foodie and because I love avocados, I just had to try them.
