Fundraising Campaign for the Birth Center in Tepoztlan

Hi folks,
Merry Christmas to everybody! Last night I created a new fundraising campaign page on GoFundMe.com to help Angelina Martinez to build a new Birth Center in Tepoztlan, Mexico. I wish you can participate, even with a small contribution in this campaing and share this link also with your friends in facebook.
Our goal for 2013 is to reach the amount of 2'500 USD so that we can build a new and safe place for Angelina in her community in Tepoztlan and allow the future mexican babies to be born in peace in her hands.
Please give whatever you can to make this dream to be possible. Share with your friends and let them know about it.
All donors will be informed by e-mail once we'll have reached our goal.
Thanks to all people who have bought a copy of the DVD Born In Mexico this year, since june 2012, we were able to raise only 92.50 US Dollars for the Birth Center in Tepoztlan. There's still much to do and there are still 61 copies left.
For those who still don't know what this project is all about and why we are doing it please read the August 18th post.
If you wish to donate please do it here http://www.gofundme.com/BirthCenter-Tepoztlan
Wish you a wonderful Christmas and happy holidays

Hugging Montréal

Hi everyone,

Hope there are still some people out there that have survived at the End of the World as it was predicted by Mayas for this last December 21st!
I'm currently in Montréal now, still alive, happy and so relieved to have left behind me the Hudson Valley in NY. So far I'm enjoying this very beautiful and amazing city. People are so friendly and lovely. Yesterday, with a bunch of friends we participated at a Free Hughs event in Mont-Royal, right in front of the Metro Station place. It was so nice to share so much love and warmth with people of all ages. From the 4 years young kids running with opened arms and a big smile on their eyes, to the 78 years old native woman almost crying and surprised to receive so many hughs from so many strangers.

I feel so grateful and blessed to be here and to be still committed with myself and my dreams as I've planned since before my departure from Switzerland. Coming back to our latest news concerning Born In Mexico I just wanted to tell you that there won't be another re-edition next year of the DVD nor in the future. So you can order now 1 of the last 62 copies of Born In Mexico left. In fact I decided that it's time for me to leave this project behind to its past and go further if I want to realize new videos for other Indigenous Communities. By now I'm just waiting to sell everything out before send the money raised to Angelina.
Canada seems to me an amazing place to meet aboriginal peoples from first nations and acknowledge their ancient traditions. I feel there's so much to learn from them. I also remind you that as a Midwifery School or Birth Center, you can buy more copies if you want at a more advantage price. Just write me an email for further information and conditions of this facility.

Tree of Life-Video wishes you a very joyful Christmas and a peaceful 2013. May this New Year bring us more clarity and more consciousness in our relationships, whether with ourselves, with our loved ones, with the nature that surrounds us and with the new babies that are waiting for a more respectful and loving humanity.

Sweet Hugs, Maurizio
