On July 11th from 4:00 pm – 7:30pm there will be charitable Bingo Event at Hosteria Duran to raise the awareness of Carbon Monoxide Poisoning. Tickets are $10 and I can drop them off for you at one of the local Gringo Hangouts.
CO poisoning kills more than 300 people each year in Ecuador. Unfortunately, the monitors are expensive in Ecuador. All the funds from this event will go to purchasing CO monitors for people who can’t afford them.
The Maria Jose Foundation mjcfoundation.org, a non profit was started after the tragic death of my friend’s sister. There was a good article about the danger of CO and the foundation in El Tiempo today.
There are some great prizes at the Bingo Event. A trip to the Oriente and our friends from Bananas Cafe, Windhorse Cafe and Amcry Swiss Restaurant are providing Almuerzos and Dinners as prizes.
Please help this worthy foundation.
