Matching Challenge for Children’s Home

Please join Regal Properties in an effort to build much-needed children’s housing for Hogar Infantil, near Tijuana.  Currently, when the children reach the age of about 12-13 they have to be turned away from the existing home and split up from their siblings because of insufficient resources and facilities.  Some of them are quickly recruited and exploited for illicit purposes like prostitution.  Therefore, Hogar Infantil has a goal to build 4 large houses on its property, at a cost of $150,000 each, which will be used to address this need.  Fortunately, an anonymous benefactor who shares the desire and commitment to build these 4 houses, will match every dollar pledged or contributed by you toward this cause during this month of November.  In other words, your gift of $100 = $200, and your gift of $10,000 = $20,000!  No gift is too small, and the donor will match up to $150,000 (which means we can get 2 houses for the price of 1).  All donations are tax deductible.

Please help by mailing a check TODAY, payable to Hogar Infantil, Inc. c/o Regal Properties, at 690 West B Street, San Diego, CA 92101, and reference “Matching Challenge” on the check memo, and you will receive a receipt for your tax deductible contribution.

For example, less than two years ago many commercial real estate analysts predicted the demise of Starbucks while the company braked growth and even closed some stores; but now Starbucks has resumed opening stores, including some it previously closed.
