Happy Thanksgiving!! I am thankful for you!

Not every country celebrates Thanksgiving. It is not a Costa Rican tradition. But giving thanks should be a daily thing and having a holiday to give thanks it's a beautiful idea!

Let us not fool ourselves, 2020 has been a challenging year. So many people are unemployed worldwide -according to some estimations, 40% of Costa Rican households will fall under the line of poverty by the end of the year- and so many people died to the COVID 19. It has also been harsh weather-wise; draughts, hurricanes, and floods hit us left and right. Not an easy year.

Yet, I can not help to feel grateful. This year you -and friends like- you have stepped up more than ever to show your solidarity! Your trust, generosity, and commitment have helped us bring relief to people in the Osa Peninsula's most vulnerable and impoverished places. And that's not all, we have been really busy helping people stay on track! Thanks to you we have

  1. Supplied relief to 50 senior citizens in Drake Bay, every month since April 2020,
  2. Protected more sea turtles nests than ever before,
  3. Given remote environmental education every week to kids all over the Osa Peninsula
  4. Provided training, materials, and organic seeds to 30 families who are now practicing regenerative agriculture to improve their food independence without damaging the environment.
  5. Trained and certified 11 tourism guides in the Talamanca Region
  6. Supplied training to 10 associations all over the Talamanca region
  7. And this end of the year, we will be bringing Christmas gifts to 95 kids all over the Osa Peninsula whose parents are struggling.
  8. We helped open Corcovado National Park and have been supplying funds to community park rangers to enhance its protection.

There is so much need in Costa Rica and the world, but you have been a light helping stay on track through this bleak time.

If you celebrate Thanksgiving, I hope you enjoy it, and if you don't, I hope you have lots of things to be grateful for anyway. We are indeed thankful for you!

Warmest regards,

Ale
