Mike & Cathy McLeod

from Tacoma, Washington, have an annual fundraiser—a cheese and wine-tasting party—and the proceeds are placed in their 501c3 non-profit M&C International Children’s Foundation. The funds raised are used for matching funds to benefit FANLAP and other non-profits in La Paz, that help children of impoverished families further their education.
