Do rubber boots come in pink? Well, it's June, and the rainy season is upon us. It sure is nice to have the humidity break and see things so green. The other day I saw a little girl in rubber boots, and I asked myself. Do rubber boots come in pink? It got me to thinking about our area and what's in store for the immediate future of kids here in Guanacaste, Costa Rica, Many of them refugees.
Why do these areas of the world still need your help?
It's true, we have been selling well here at our beaches, many of the ocean view lots are now gone, and I cannot stress enough to get yours before it's too late. With those sales creates jobs, either building, renovating, decorating, legal, etc., etc. It's fantastic for the local economy. So why do these areas of the world still need your help? Yet with all the lockdowns, tourism numbers are still way down. As such many families are still without basic needs. On top of that, as I mentioned we're in our low season.
There seems to be exciting new opportunity in all this.
What really caught my attention the other day seeing the little girl in her rubber boots? The fact that is was a Tuesday around 10 am and she was not in school. Schooling is one area that has suffered, for some families more than others. Especially refugee kids. But there seems to be exciting new opportunity in all this. Not only have many teachers moved classes online. They are also perfecting the craft of virtual teaching. Virtual teaching is not new, yet to many people, it is the first time they have used it. Personally, I hope and believe virtual schooling will create great opportunities for advanced studies, opening doors to far more students and young adults than ever before. What a powerful result that's being created out of the Covid-19 pandemic. There are, however, a few necessities. One is internet, and when a family lacks resources to put basics on the table, well, I do not have to draw a flow chart. We all get it.

So, when you see pink rubber boots, remember the goal is ensuring a little girl is not stuck wearing them for life.
Proudly like Canada, Europe and the United States, Costa Rica takes in large numbers of refugees mainly from Nicaragua here in the Guanacaste area. There is only so much the small country of Costa Rica can do without help. Over the next few months, the food drives will still run and many local people, expats, etc. will be doing what they can to help less fortunate people get through. We know this area set to explode with tourism. It is evident in the number of sales happening (Listing Map Here) and projects coming. Together let's continue to do what we can to ensure these people have the help they need to stay fed and continue with their education. So, when you see pink rubber boots, remember the goal is ensuring a little girl is not stuck wearing them for life. Included here is a way to contribute. Our Broker has remained involved from the start of the pandemic. As an easy way to contribute I am including this method as 100% goes into our food drives and other basic needs.
