Thank you for your support!

Thank you Joe Gagnon, Mildred Espinoza and Rolando Mansilla for your support! 5 students in Guatemala received scholarships today because of you…and I’m proud of Kelly Sullivan Walden and Nancy Telzerow for sticking with the Chimein dream…we’ve only just begun — visit: Mercure Casa Veranda Guatemala.


THANK YOU to everyone who participated in making our Dia de los Muertos Fun(d)

FundRasiingThe Chime In team (Dana Walden, Susan Johnson, Steve Allen, Mara Quigley, and Kelly Sullivan Walden) would like to pour open our hearts and shout out from the rafters THANK YOU to everyone who participated in making our Dia de los Muertos Fun(d) Raiser at Corazon Performing Arts a smash success!

Because of your help we raised $10,000 (and combined with our Crowdfunding Campaign) that makes for a total of $16,000-We are about 10k shy from being able to reach our ultimate goal—but we are well on our way.

I’d like to thank the following people for contributing to sponsor a house:

Haitham Hassan, Jay Anderton, Ayman Sawaf, and Michelle Larson (and the Bliss Sisters) for collectively contributing to the building materials for what will be “The House that Bliss Built”!

And we couldn’t have had such a successful event if it weren’t for the generosity and talent of the following people:

Giovanna Brandi and her team for hosting our event in her gorgeous Corazon Performing Arts studio

Hasya Anais for choreographing and performing her original “dia de los muertos” flamenco dance with Haily and

Luke and the Lovingtons for including us on their “Goodness Tour” and sharing their incredible uplifting music

Benjamin Swatez (who is also a member of our core team) for painting the evening with love

Helen Djukic for procuring California Fruit Wines and enriching us with such delicious (and unique) wine for the occasion

Chef David for his exquisite and delicious food

Wendi Resnick for creating such a beautiful “photo booth” area for magic to take place and for donating so generously to our fund to build home,

the Tuscali Mountain Inn, Topanga Home Grown, The Mimosa Café, Jelan Jelan Imports, Yoga Desa, Jo-e Sutton, Jonny Brower, Gypsy Racco, Nancy Telzerow,
