Elizabeth Porras hosts an EXPERIENTIAL program over Winterbreak at her HACIENDA in Mazatlan, Mexico. Students from Dallas go to Mazatlan Mexico for two weeks of CHANGING the lives of poor children.
Professor Bob Hopkins has created an opportunity for Dallas students and adult chaperones to go to Mazatlan to the 10,000 square foot Hacienda of Elizabeth Porras. Some of the experience will be to learn Spanish, but mostly to teach English, provide back packs full of toys for children, paint a school, help clean up hurricane damage in a wrecked village and share American experiences with Mazatlan non profit organizations.
The students going will be led by Amit Banerjee, his brother Dave and dad ANDY. Imagine a Christmas helping international students and people who barely live day by day to find enough food to feed their families. Amit is founder of Philanthropy Kids magazine.
Accompanying students are Olympic RACE WALK champion Richard Davis and wife Nancy, who are bringing suitcases full of toys for the back packs. Barefoot Wine founders Bonnie Harvey and Michael Houlihan will sign their book, the BAREFOOT SPIRIT for local American and Canadian locals in Mazatlan. American Airline pilots Sonia LAXO and Steve
Iverson will take a few days to help bring joy to the children of RECREO, Mexico.
