Boards Across Borders - OLIO & Ninos de la Promesa

Ninos de la Promesa is an 18 year old orphanage that is located right on the coast of sunny Playas de Tijuana in Tijuana, Mexico.

Throughout the entire month of February, OLIO will be accepting surfboards, skateboards and other needed items to be donated to the children of Ninos de la Promesa. 

Besides the fact that they are located right on the water of Northern Mexico, Ninos de la Promesa stands out because it is an orphanage where children choose to go to on their own. Having to face difficult decisions on their own without loving families, these children turn to the loving arms of Connie and Tyler. An old hotel was renovated into a safe and new home for these children where they can receive education, family, friendship and personal growth. 

Through February 2 - 28, OLIO will be accepting donations everyday at Culture Brewing in Ocean Beach during business hours. 

4845 Newport Ave, San Diego, CA 92107
