Donation from Alex and Isabelle Hair Ties

photo 1Little Known Help Zone has started a new project! We are collecting Christmas presents for the Hogar De Amor orphanage run by http://helpinghonduraskids.org . The children of La Ceiba do not have access to everyday things you or I may be able to get, so I thought it would be nice to sen down Christmas gifts to the orphanage.

Recently, the kind owners of Alex and Isabelle Hair ties sent a donation of hair tie packages for the girls at the orphanage. Little Known Help Zone is quite happy and very grateful for their kindness. The hair ties are beautiful and will be delightful to include in the Christmas presents. I have always used these hair ties due to their eye pleasing nature, great quality, and kindness towards hair.

Alex and Isabelle are a very small operation hair tie company who are devoted to giving back to the community. It is a family affair ran by two moms and their young daughters. Half of the money made goes to the the girl’s horseback riding and the other half goes towards pediatric cancer. Alex and Isabelle have a wonderful mission and I highly suggest you check them out! http://www.alexandisabellehairties.com

Little Known Help Zone is having luck collecting donations but will still need much more. There are 22 orphans, 11 girls and 11 boys. If you would like to contribute, please email me at littleknownhelpzone@gmail.com

Apparel is still in the works, along with a large scale fundraiser being planned in spring! Check out our etsy and stay tuned!

A Little About the Refuge

I am just about ready to leave for the refuge, but I figured I would make a post about the organization I have chosen to aid.

The Jaguar Rescue is located in Playa Chiquita in the southern Caribbean portion of Costa Rica. They rehabilitate injured or mistreated animals and then reintroduce them to their natural environment. It was born in 2008 and is not considered a zoo, instead a rehabilitation center. They are also trying to develop a proper wild animal education that is beneficial to everyone’s future. They use a hands on approach which has been very successful with the animals. Over 400 animals have been returned to the jungle. Animal guests include birds, monkeys, jaguars, and other mammals/reptiles. The name originated from the baby jaguar they received in 2007 which unfortunately, the preserve and their work stands in her honor.

The Jaguar Rescue is a touching organization with great roots and a great mission. As soon as I stumbled upon this organization, I knew it was the one I wanted to help. I am highly looking forward to aiding the organization and visiting these great people. I suggest checking out the Jaguar Rescue and possibly donating or finding your way to help.
