‘Mija, yes you can’ Project to join fundrasing forces with Gigi’s Playhouse

Like countless events and organizations, COVID-19 has impacted GiGi’s Playhouse of El Paso, and now the ‘Mija, Yes You Can’ project is stepping in to help.

As GiGi’s Playhouse depends on funds raised through events, unfortunately, the organization had to postpone their primary fundraiser the “I have a voice Gala”.

“While we have remained operational and continue to offer programs via distance learning, we still have rent, salaries, and utilities to pay,” said Maggie Morales-Moody, Executive Director of GiGi’s Playhouse El Paso.

That’s where the local women’s empowerment project ‘Mija, Yes You Can’ is stepping in. For the next month, profits made from ‘Mija, yes you can’ T-shirts will go straight to GiGi’s Playhouse of El Paso.

“During these difficult times, many El Pasoans have answered the call to help out our community. Now is another opportunity to help out our neighbors,” said Iris Lopez, Founder of the ‘Mija, Yes You Can’ project.

GiGi’s Playhouse is a nonprofit organization aimed at increasing positive awareness of Down Syndrome as well as empowering local residents with Down syndrome, their families and the community. GiGi’s playhouse provides free programs that are educational and therapeutic to those with Down syndrome from birth through adulthood.

‘Mija, Yes You Can’ just made its first large-sum donation to UMC’s Compassionate Care Fund, and now the organization said it’s proud to team up with another local nonprofit in need during these trying times.
