Our Wish List

The most useful way to support Mil Milagros is with monetary donations. While we deeply appreciate efforts to purchase and collect goods for the children, please do not ship anything to us in Guatemala. The Customs process in Guatemala is unworkable. The expense, time, and bureaucracy sadly make it all but impossible for us to receive shipments of any goods for the children. It is best to bring the following goods with you to Guatemala, and/or to make a cash donation. For further information, please contact us at
