Thanks for the toy donations!

from Paul Crist of Vallarta Enfrenta el SIDA, A.C.

Many, many THANKS to Tom, Luis, and everyone who donated toys! The Posada at the CAPASITS HIV clinic was yesterday, and it was filled with smiling, laughing, young faces because Christmas came early for a lot of kids living in families affected by HIV and AIDS! Tom and all at Frida: YOU ARE THE BEST!!!
