Raise your glass to the kids of La Boca!

You have enjoyed the festivities of the Holiday Season and you welcomed in a Happy New Year.... now join me, and all the volunteers at Club Union de los Pibes (The Kids’ Union), and raise a glass to the children of la Boca!

You can start 2011 by making a positive difference to the lives of
the kids of La Boca; click the buttons below now and donate the cost of a New Year’s drink to celebrate a brighter future for the kids of Barracas and La Boca with Club Union de los Pibes. The proceeds of donating your drink will go towards renting a new home for the club and towards activities for the kids.... and it might even help you keep that New Year's resolution you made!

You can donate in any currency with your debit/credit card using the PayPal donation buttons below. You do not need to join PayPal to use these buttons; look for the link near the card symbols on the left of the page that the button takes you to. (See notes below about Gift Aid and matched giving.)

Donate your glass: 2.50 GBP (approx 3.50 USD / 15 pesos)

Donate your bottle: 10.00 GBP (approx 15.00 USD / 60 pesos)

Donate a round from you and your friends: 25.00 GBP (approx 35 USD / 150 pesos)

Don't forget to ask if your employer runs a matched giving scheme. If you live in the UK, you
can add Gift Aid to your donation: insert the message "This is a Gift Aid donation" in the optional message box on the confirmation of payment page.

If you’d like to make a donation of a different amount please use the buttons on the ‘donate’ page of our blog; http://uniondelospibes.blogspot.com/p/donate.html
More, less, whatever you can manage - we're all working together and it all counts!

Volunteer for free in Buenos Aires in 2011

Happy New Year from everyone at Club Union de los Pibes!

We wish all our volunteers and supporters - past, present and future - all the very best for their adventures and aspirations in the coming year. It is solely thanks to your continued efforts that Club Union de los Pibes will be able to help improve the lives of the kids of Barracas and La Boca during 2011... and beyond.

Club Union de los Pibes is your family in Buenos Aires. We have lots of experiences to offer you and we are looking forward to hearing from you!


"I really enjoyed my time volunteering at the club. I was able to get to know some really amazing kids, a lot of great people from around the world and actually improved quite a bit with my Spanish. I liked the volunteering experience with the club because I was able to see how a community volunteer organization works and how it impacts the kids that are involved. It also helped me figure out my skills as a volunteer and what I'd like to improve on in the future."
