Mr. President Please Open the Airport!

June 18, 2020 – Palmira, Carrillo, Guanacaste, Costa Rica.

It has been about 3 months since we have been working with the local communities, volunteers and your donations to provide much needed food and supplies to the most needy families in our little corner of paradise.  So what changed this time?  Well being good capitalists and knowing that it is not good for anyone to just receive handouts and not do something in exchange we decided to require every town who got aid to clean up their streets on the day we deliver them aid.

So here is what happened – and it is not what you would expect…  We had previously identified 53 families in the community of Palmira that were in need of food and supply packages.  And we told them that everyone who was on the list to get a package had to come out in the morning and help do a street and yard clean up.  We partnered with Patas y Manos like always who in turn coordinated the clean up with the assistance of the Municipality of Carrillo.  So instead of the 53 families, over 200 people showed up to not only clean the streets but to clear out backyards of garbage and items that could be a potential Dengue nests.

Diamante Eco Adventure Park Coronavirus Food Drive June 3, 2020.

Giving out much needed food and supplies to our local community members has now become a weekly event thanks to those who have donated time and money.  We are incredibly thankful to everyone’s efforts.

This week Tank Tops Flips Flops and Patas y Manos is proud to partner with Diamante Eco Adventure Park.  Diamante provided all the funding for this weeks food drive that helped 100 families in the communities of Artola, Nuevo Colon, Sardinal, Libertad and San Blas.  All of these communities are the home to the folks who greet you with their warm Costa Rican smiles and “Pura Vida” attitude as you enjoy one of the areas tourist attractions, restaurants, shops, medical clinics, supermarkets or nightlife spots.  Things would not function as smoothly and as pleasurably as they do without the hard work and dedication of all these local community members.
