Nicole is a bright and vivacious girl with a smile that lights up the world. She and her family are among the thousands of immigrants, refugees, and asylum seekers from Mexico and Central America who have settled in Tijuana. Living in a town that borders the USA and with drug-related violence prevalent in her neighborhood, Nicole wishes for safety and unity. To make that wish come true, we will build a much needed pre-primary school and friendship center in Nicole’s neighborhood. The friendship center will be a safe place where children on both sides of the border can gather to learn, build bridges and make new friends.
Inspired by the transformative spirit of the butterfly, we will create a beautiful art piece to hang in the friendship center. For every donation of $25 or more, a butterfly will be painted on the canvas in your honor ($25 = extra small butterfly, $50 = small butterfly, $100 = medium, $250 = large butterfly, $500 = extra large butterfly). To witness the progress of the masterpiece, live updates of the painting will be shared on Facebook. Be sure to check it out on Tuesday, December 3rd.
Double Your Impact – Donations Up To $15K Generously Matched!
Between now and December 3rd our goal is to raise $15,000 to set the foundation of the school and friendship center.

All donations up to $15k will be generously matched in memory of Kids for Peace Co-Founder’s brother, the beloved Jay McManigal.
