We were invited by TV Azteca in Mexico City to participate in a Jugeton (toy charity for children). The gala event began at 6:00 am in the main city plaza, and was televised live nationwide. Fifteen trucks were employed to head out in caravan to distribute 35,000 toys to needy children.

whose lives were touched
The event carried on to the next day when our show groupe was invited to perform for 3,000 children in Atenco, Hidalgo.Ten of us took off early in search of this remote town and after 5 hours of driving we finally found it. Families with their children were arriving and the line grew long as they patiently awaited seating in the stadium. Marco’s puppets were a real treat for the children and they clapped and laughed throughout the show which was a sensation for them.
There were also skits, dance contests and complimentary refreshments for all.
