$1.00 – TOTAL…..   

While many of the programs are relatively small in size, dollar wise, they are vital to the people receiving the program benefits. 

All of your donation goes to work in Los Toros.  Everyone involved, both here in the US and in Los Toros are volunteers.  Administration fees are very small, less than half a penny per dollar spent, so they are not shown above.
