Transportation for the residents of the Lar dos Velhinhos

Dear friends, we are extending the duration of this raffle with the purpose of raise more money so we can also help the Lar dos Velhinhos -- a nursing home in Piranga, a very small town in the interior of Brazil, to purchase a car to transport the sick and disabled to doctor's appointments and hospitals, which are located very far away. There are 45 residents at the institution and most of their care and survival depends on the generosity of volunteers -- financially and emotionally.

With the minimum amount of $20 you can make a big difference in the life of these people, who were either abandoned by their families or are mentally or physically disabled,

Besides you'll have a chance to win the beautiful painting, donated by acclaimed Brazilian artist, Marinna Lisita.

The drawing date? November 17, during a really cool cocktail party ... because will be partying for a cause!

Place and Time - TBD

Please, help us to help!
Da Terra Brasil Foundation
The Da Terra Brasil Foundation is a non-profit organization, whose mission is to raise funds to help with social projects in Brasil - www.daterrabrasil.org.
We have been very touched by the Brazilian campaign "Let's take Yuri Home" and we're counting on you for your help.
Yuri was born with Muscular Spinal Athrophy and he will never be cured. He has been living in a hospital in Brasil for two years now, because his parents cannot afford the 15.000 dollar respirator that would help him live a more comfortable life.
The generous and dedicated volunteers in charge of the campaign in Brazil have done wonders to help make his parent's wishes come true, to be half-way there to take their baby home. Can you imagine having to go to visit your child at a hospital every day and having to leave him to sleep alone at night? Well ... we can't!
Now it's our turn, Brazilians in America, to help out.
Our goal is to reach $15.000 to buy the respirator ASAP and hvae a chance to win Marinna Lisita's beautiful artwork. The drawing will be done during a cocktail reception at the Bubble Lounge in June-- date and time to be confirmed.
