When the strongest storm on record hit the Mexican state of Baja California Sur last September, the town of San Jose del Cabo was devastated. A number of families lost everything.
The partners and staff at Dakeryn Industries, having enjoyed vacations in the area, were compelled to help the indigenous people of the Baja. The plan was to raise funds to provide immediate relief in the form of clean water, food, medical service/supplies, shelter – and building materials for restoration.
Under the leadership of Lauren Chimko, and with heartfelt gratitude for the amazing generosity of customers, suppliers, friends, and family, we’re pleased to confirm $30,174.86 was raised. With Dakeryn matching $10,000 in donations, the final tally broke $40,000. Many have been following Lauren’s blog Rebuild the Baja, where today’s post summarizes how these funds have made a difference.
