Wishlist

Below is a list of items needed at The Mariposa DR Foundation.  Wishlist updated June 2019.

Please do not ship items to the DR.  Customs fees are often more expensive than the items donated.  The best way to get them to us is to bring them down in an extra suitcase!

We are so grateful for anything and everything that is donated, and we wouldn’t be able to operate without our supporters! Please keep in mind that some donations can create problems for us. Please consider carefully before bringing the following items:

- Small toothpaste tubes, glue sticks, and other individually packaged items. We do our best to minimize our waste and avoid bringing plastic to the DR, so please consider the packaging around your donation!

- English books. Although many of our girls are learning, most can’t read in English. We try to keep our library well-stocked with Spanish books. Children’s books by Haitian and Dominican authors are especially great!
