As a Burqueña, I really appreciate everyone who reblogs/shares art, events, stories, culture, history, etc concerning New Mexico. It might seem simple or even trivial to some of you, but a lot of the time we are highly under-represented/recognized in the X/Chican@ community in every way. & being the second poorest state in the country with an extremely high amount of Raza and Natives living here, we need all the love and support from other PoC we can get, seriously. Thank you.

If you’re available on Sunday and have an extra $15, please come check out the event my salon is hosting at Sister bar! Not only will there be dope South American jams from Baracutanga – but it’s for the amazing purpose of supporting the Children’s Grief Center of NM. They help our youth around the entire state heal and cope with trauma and loss of loved ones. It really is a great cause, but will also be a lot of fun!

(100% of the proceeds will be benefitting the Children’s Grief Center and their Camp Corazón .)

“Camp Corazón – A special place for kids ages 7 – Senior in High School who’ve had a loved one die.

At the Children’s Grief Center of New Mexico, we often get calls from families living around the state who have lost loved ones, and don’t have any resources in their communities. This is why we’re reaching out across New Mexico.

Camp Corazón offers traditional camp activities such as a challenge course, bonfire, songs and games, and it also provides a unique opportunity for kids who have lost a loved one to share feelings and memories with other kids who’ve been through something similar. Camp Corazón helps grieving young people develop their own coping skills that will help them manage grief in their day-to-day lives, even after they leave.

At the Children’s Grief Center, we’ve been working with bereaved kids and their families for a long time – and we know we need your help! Let’s spread the word about this unique opportunity for grieving kids. Please help us reach bereaved families in your community. We also need volunteers to help at camp – as Big Buddies (playing and camping side by side with each kid), Activity Leaders and in special support roles (bereavement facilitators, help with meals, arts and crafts, driving).”

“The Children’s Grief Center provides free services to hundreds of kids in our community each year – all without any state or federal funding.” We appreciate any support!
