Each month Sayulita Life gives back to our community. For the month of May 2021, Sayulita Life has chosen to donate to the Dia de Los Ninos Fundraiser for SayuParke. The donation will go toward helping to fund the event itself, and also to improve and maintain various materials and structures in the park.
Each month Sayulita Life gives back to our community. For the month of April of 2021, Sayulita Life has chosen to donate to the Sayulita Jaibos Baseball team. The Jaibos Baseball team has officially been participating in the Nayarit Baseball League for the last six years, but has a long tradition of playing in Sayulita. Ran entirely through contributions and volunteers, the team is always in need of extra community help and support. Eduardo Castillon Guerra, President of the team and President of the Administration of the Manuel Rodríguez Sanchez Stadium (Sayulita’s Baseball Stadium), explains that the donation from Sayulita Life will help to purchase expensive and much needed equipment for the team.
Each month Sayulita Life gives back to our community. For March, 2021, Sayulita has chosen the Trashion Fashion fundraiser as our donation recipient. Trashion Fashion began just a couple years ago as a means to raise funds for Sayulita’s recycling program, and to get the community involved in recycling and to spread awareness about its importance. The concept quickly became a hit, as volunteer participants worked together to create fashionable looks out of trash or recycled items to be shown off in a fun runway fashion show for the community. Lina Weissman, creative director, tells us more about the event and how Sayulita Life’s donation will help the recycling program in Sayulita.
Sayulita Life has chosen local animal rescue organization Wet Nose to receive the $5,000 peso donation for the month of February. Wet Nose Animal Rescue is an animal rescue aimed toward rehabilitation, placing animals in loving homes, and spreading awareness about animal neglect and how to prevent it. The rescue has recently applied to be an official non-profit organization here in Sayulita. The founder of Wet Nose Rescue, Kristi, talks more about Wet Nose’s mission and how others can help their cause.
For the month of January, Sayulita Life has selected Casa Clu in San Ignacio, Sayulita’s neighboring town, to receive our monthly donation. Casa Clu civil association (CA), is a recreation and learning center where the children from San Ignacio, Nayarit can gather and feel free to express their feelings. It is a place to play, create, teach, learn, share, laugh and grow. Casa Clu’s team of psychologists, teachers, artists, athletes, professionals and volunteers has built a program of art, sports classes, workshops, field trips, and games, to create new opportunities and a better future for the kids of this community. Sayulita Life’s donation went toward helping to purchase Christmas gifts for the children of Casa Clu. Patty Rozos, leader of external communication at Casa Clu, describes more about Casa Clu and its mission.
This month’s recipient of Sayulita Life’s $5,000 donation is Sayulita’s Campamento Tortuguero, or the turtle camp. Campamento Tortuguero in Sayulita is a voluntary community project, located on the north end of Sayulita’s beach across the street from the Pajaro de Fuego condominium complex. The goal of this Sayulita organization is to relocate sea turtle nests in order to keep them safe, as well as to educate locals and visitors on how to protect the turtles from poaching. For the last several years, the Sayulita turtle camp has been dedicated to preserving the native sea turtles that come every year in large numbers to Sayulita’s beaches to make their nests and lay their eggs.
The donation from Sayulita Life will help the camp by purchasing materials that will improve the facilities of the turtle nests’ incubation laboratory. The donation will specifically buy wooden boards, shelves, electricity supplies, and thermometers.
This month’s recipient of Sayulita Life’s $5,000 donation is El Centro Creativo y Reciclaje. In the summer of 2018, El Centro started a project with the support of the Mar y Vida surf camp. With the support of local donations raised, they were able to make ashtrays for the community of Sayulita out of resourced aluminum and plexiglass glass, for a durable build to withstand the intense Sayulita sun, heat, and overall tropical weather. However, recently, due to normal wear and tear, and unfortunate vandalism, these ashtray receptacles have been ruined and therefore taken down. They are in need of repair and some extra love and care. Sayulita Life’s donation will help purchase new materials to repair the ashtrays. This donation, along with the sourcing of old materials, will repair the cigarette containers to be good as new! Risa Machuca tells us more about the ashtrays and when they were first created.
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.
