Many of our generous and caring visitors to Zihuatanejo bring school supplies and clothing for our less fortunate children, and for those that have dropped off their donations with my wife at Lupita's Boutique I thought you might enjoy seeing where some of those donations have gone.
About a quarter of the way between Zihuatanejo and Acapulco is a tiny forgotten village of fishermen and farmers called Cayacal. Cayacal is located about 55 kilometers (34 miles) southeast of Zihuatanejo along the Carretera Nacional 200 at the coordinates 17°23'20.50"N and 101° 9'41.61"W. Cayacal is home to a small primary school and a kindergarten with about 45 students.
Last Monday, May 21st, we took school supplies and clothing donated by some very kind and thoughtful visitors to Zihuatanejo. We had saved up enough donations to assure that there were enough supplies and clothing for all the children at the kindergarten and the primary school so that no one would be left out.

The children were all very grateful for the donations of school supplies and clothing, and they wanted to be sure that the kind people who made it all possible for them received this message from them:¡GRACIAS!
