You can now purchase products which show images of our SOLARHAVEN projects in the United States and in Mexico as well as of the many adorable dogs and cats that have been our constant companions. These products include stationery,
photographic prints and spiral notebooks as well as smart phone cases,
throw pillows, tote bags, and coffee mugs.
Your purchase will help support our efforts to educate disadvantaged children in our village in Veracruz, Mexico
as well as to help with the costs of food and verternary care for our seven rescue dogs and three rescue cats
which is more than our small, fixed income can manage. Since
coming to Mexico we have rescued eleven dogs.
Our new "BEST FRIENDS-Ghost and Homer" calendar can be configured before purchase
to start at any month of the year.
