Each month Sayulita Life gives back to our community by donating to a local cause or charity in need. This month, Sayulita Life has chosen Sayulita’s JR Sup Team as our donation recipient. The Sayulita JR Sup Team is one of Sayulita’s original and longest lasting youth programs in our community. The team is comprised of over 50 local Sayulita children who participate and train year-round, and is an organization run entirely as a community and donation-based program, meaning they are in constant need of funding and support in order to operate. Sayulita Life’s donation to the team will help cover the costs of some much needed new equipment, including new team uniforms, paddles, and life preservers.

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.

This month Sayulita Life has decided to give back and donate to the Sayulita Church. Father Donato from our local church said they could use the donation money to buy a big loud-speaker, so that they could place it outside of the church for this year’s Dia de Los Muertos holiday, so that people can still hear mass while avoiding being crowded in the church or in an unsafe large gathering for mass on Monday, November 2nd, 2020. As many already know, this year’s Dia de Los Muertos Festival was canceled in order to keep the health and safety of…

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.

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.
