From One Single Blog Post, So Much Good Can Happen – Here’s Proof

Highlighting the positive or showcasing the greatness in people or culture has always been my top priority in writing or blogging – especially when it comes to Mexico and giving it the recognition it deserves.  I see enough bad junk in the world news and seriously, life’s much too short.

Most of you have seen that my blogs pertain to non-profs quite a bit – and those organizations who are small and have a hard time getting their news distributed.  One of my greatest joys is to see what happens when people read the posts…and react.

Recently I posted a piece about how to get involved with a non-profit that I am honored to work with, Corazon de Vida, located in Orange County with their work taking place in Baja California with 14 different orphanages.

Among many social media outlets, I also posted the piece on LinkedIn in one of the groups I’m in, and a doctor responded by sending me an email.  He wanted to donate the services of his clinic and I gave him all of the info of how he could proceed.

A few weeks later, I received an email from him saying that they solidified a pilot health care program in Baja for one month, providing checkups, screenings and health care information for the kids.

The moment I received this email was one of those days I’ll remember forever. Such a small effort of posting an article can make a world of difference to others.

This is not the first story I have to share, there have actually been dozens of stories like this since I started this blog. I promise to share more of these with you in the future.

    This is exactly why you are one of my heroes! Yucatán needs this type of assistance, too. There is already a group of doctors from Iowa that come down twice a year to operate on disfigurements like cleft-palates, etc, on 0-income patients, but it is not nearly enough. Thank you, Susie!
