Because We Care is a loosely structured non-profit on Roatan. It was started 18 years ago by Nidia Webster.
Nidia had a dream that she could help the children who had so little. She started off small with Christmas parties for a few kids and from there, it grew. This year we had Christmas complete with Santa and gifts for almost 2000 island children. These were kids who would not normally get anything at all for Christmas.She also distributes TOMS shoes from the Buy One, Donate One program. This past year we fit over 11,000 school children with new TOMS shoes.Many of the children came to get their new shoes wearing the very worn out pair they were given the year before. Because We Care also distributes school supplies, desks, raincoats, toothbrushes and toothpaste, all from donations.
