Pina Palmera Definitely Needs Some Loving

Blog post by Tina Winterlik © 2012!/zipolita @zipolita Google+

Pina Palmera definitely needs some loving support. I was over there the other day and there was a lot of standing water. There was a bad smell coming from it or somewhere. I am not sure of the situation there but I know that they survive on donations.

If you have supported them in the past I would definitely suggest you contact them and see what you can do to help out. If you are not aware Zipolite was hit with Hurricane Carlota in June 2012. Please lend a hand and help out if you can.

 From their homepage

We are dreaming of a society, where EVERYBODY recognizes and respects differences !
