Giving Hearts 2013

Wednesday, January 16, 2013 7:49 AM

Peace of Art began a toy drive in the fall of 2012, "GIVING HEARTS." The idea behind it was to collect toys and deliver them across the border in Cd. Juarez to orphans left behind by the violence from the recent years. They were to be delivered on January 6, 2013,

In remembrence of the "Magi" bringing gifts to baby Jesus, Mexican tradition has it that children receive toys on this day. A bread called "rosca de reyes" accompanied by hot chocolate is the traditional food for the day and families get together to celebrate.

Due to the weather, we delivered the toys one week later but the joy and celebration was the same. Along with the toys, we brought "rosca de reyes" and hot chocolate to share with the beautiful children.

You can go to our gallery to see some of the pics of the celebration.
