On Thursday evening, April 2nd, 2009, I AM Book Gifting Ambassador Bruce Descoteaux and I met the First Lady of Tijuana, Mexico at The Gente Bien Magazine Saks Fifth Avenue Event in San Diego. Alicia Llanos De Ramos was very gracious in receiving us and her personal copy of The I AM! Affirmation Book. We shared with First Lady Alicia that we would be doing a book gifting mission to the Rancho De Sus Nino’s Orphanage in Tijuana. The First Lady really has a heart for the children and was very interested in our sincere intent on helping to build the self-esteem in the children of Tijuana and the world. We will be contacting her staff to work with her on other orphanages throughout Tijuana. Gente Bien Magazine will be doing a story on our visit to the Orphanage. If you would like to volunteer for this event, please contact us at www.iamfoundation.org.
The I AM Foundation would like to thank Zehra Rizvi-Sayed from Aero Financial, and Esteban Villanueva and Danitza Ramirez from Gente Bien Magazine for inviting us to this event and making this meeting possible.
As many of you know, The I AM Foundation’s vision is to connect with 30 First Lady’s around the world. This is our 3rd meeting with a First Lady. Other’s include The First Lady of Sri Lanka and The First Lady of Vukovar, Croatia.
