INTRODUCING Amigos-ABC4All Partnership:


Power Point Presentation:  Amigos and ABC4All


TO:  Alma Martinez, Founder/President, Amigos Sin Barreras / Friends Without Barriers 
Hi Alma,
Whether you can join us or not, we are ready to begin the weekly - every Saturday morning - Madrona Marsh Challenge! 
This first time for this year event on 1/19/13 is listed at and at Redondo Beach Patch.
Here's a 1-minute video when we first did this!  Here is a special video:  "As Long As"
Here is the “Team Dream:”

A dream Amigos Sin Barreras/Friends Without Barriers Founder Alma has

Spending 20 years while so many of her dear Clients leave the world dying alone.

A Hospice she will build, her dream now a Team Dream

With all concerned matching her soul’s wish so the caring love she holds

Will embrace all basking in her midst: 

A place to rest weary bones Alma will create,

So all within are adorned by and benefit from her Love that conquers and clears away any teary mist.

Rest easy, dear client, at Alma’s Hospice that is Home, one where you will be comforted till you breathe no more.


Thanks to everyone who comes out and participates now and into the future so that when the Amigos Hospice opens, we will, together, march from Madrona Marsh to the new Hospice in Redondo Beach!  CLICK! DONATE HERE
See you there,
