Shoes for the Children Annual Christmas Party and Shoe Drive

December is here, and we are collecting shoes and donations for our annual Christmas Party and shoe delivery.
Last year every child that came for shoes walked away with a new pair for Christmas!
This is the one time of year we only collect new shoes in order to make each child feel extra special.
Not only do we distribute shoes, but we join with the local community to provide a meal and a small gift. It is a special event, as for some of the children, it will be their only Christmas gift. They are already looking forward to it on December 24th.
If you would like to donate shoes, please contact Greg Snider at:

If you would like to contribute monies so we can purchase shoes, food, or small toys, please also contact Greg at the email address above or go to our website for Pay Pal at:

We will happily send you photos of the children who receive your gifts. As you can see they come dressed in their best to celebrate!

May God richly bless you this Christmas Season with the “wonders of His love”.

Greg and Natalie

Did you know that Isla seems to have something in common with Bubba Gump's? I had a friend who posted a pic of her lobster meal at Minino's last week. I commented that I was one of those people who seem odd because I don't really care for lobster but give me shrimp and grouper and I will eat it everyday. So I looked through my food photos from Isla for about the last three years and found over 40 different pics of shrimp served various ways from many restaurants.

The cookbook that I created (with a lot of help) in 2010 is now available on CD. Ixchel's Kitchen contains recipes from and inspired by the island of Isla Mujeres. Order by going to my blog.

- it's a PDF file that you can scroll down page by page like a book or print for yourself. You could print a page at a time and take to the kitchen or you can use a laptop in the kitchen.


A few photos....Fashion Show to benefit The Little Yellow School House (a school on Isla Mujeres for children that are mildly to severely handicapped, with physical, emotional, and learning disabiIities. It is totally funded by donations.)
