The Maestro Cares Foundation has a pair of unique founders who are deeply involved in a cause that is very near and dear to them. One is a successful entrepreneur who has been the force behind some of the most memorable music and soccer productions in the U.S for decades. The other, a multiple Grammy Award winner who has delighted crowds with his powerful voice, music and fashion throughout the world. Henry Cardenas and Marc Anthony, longtime friends and now partners in this labor of love, have recently made sizable donations to their growing foundation. Cardenas donated $250,000 while Anthony donated $300,000. The funds will continue to benefit the new orphanage project in the Dominican Republic, and the soon to be state of the art facility will house more than 100 children. Some founders are just the face of a foundation. Maestro Cares has founders that are the mind, heart and soul of the organization.
PHASE II BEGINS:
“Whatever good things we build end up building us,” (Jim Rohn) — this is precisely what the Maestro Cares Foundation intends to do as we begin the second phase of construction for Orfanato Niños de Cristo’s new facility in La Romana, Dominican Republic. The new complex, which will include a kitchen, a chapel, dorms, a playground, classrooms and medical offices, is scheduled to be open in December 2013.
The new facility’s construction began on Nov 23, 2012, as Maestro Cares founders Henry Cardenas and Marc Anthony traveled to La Romana for the groundbreaking ceremony. The Foundation has been committed to raising money for the development and care of the children from Orfanato Ninos de Cristo as its first beneficiary.
The Mission of the Maestro Cares Foundation is to help develop and care for the needs of disadvantaged children throughout Latin America. The foundation has been able to fund the Orfanato project via donations, charity concerts, galas and funding from its founders. Until each child in Latin America has a place to sleep, eat, and read, the work of the foundation will not be finished. It all occurs brick by brick.
