I would like to nominate my best friend Landy and her father. This is an excerpt from an email she wrote in May, 2009 – “Mama and I have had lots of talks about life lately. She is not scared of death, because the worst thing that can happen is that she gets to be reunited with Lista. And I’m not scared of her dying, because I know there’s a place saved for her in Heaven.” Earlier this year, cancer took her mom’s life. Lista was Landy’s sister. Her life was cut extremely short when cancer took her not 2 years before it took her mom. Landy is a gift to the people around her and has had to suffer through more than any one person should.  I could only hope to give back to her what she gives to everyone. Please consider her and her father for this amazing gift. — Jenny


Five reasons why our family, meaning “ME” needs to win a trip to the wonderful Now Resorts & Spas

  1. Work all day with a cranky waddling boss!
  2. Having to (stupervise) not supervise 6 other workers who don’t know the meaning of the word work!!!
  3. Cooking, cleaning, mopping, pot scrubbing, lawn cutting and toilet scrubbing.
  4. The regularly scheduled after dinner homework fight. Plus the homework that I have to research just in order to help them!! (I am not smarter than a fifth grader)
  5. Dealing with my husband (women out there, do I need to say more?)

Help! Help! I need a vacation to Now Resorts & Spas! — Marie


I would like to nominate my brother’s family for this vacation.  The morning of June 28th I received a phone call from the sheriff’s department asking me to pick up family members because of a garage fire at their home.  When I arrived 15 minutes later their whole home and both vehicles were engulfed in flames.  Fortunately they made it out safely (including their dog Jack).  They escaped with only their pajamas.  They lived with my husband and for the next couple of months.  Last month they found a rental home and will live there while they tear down and start the rebuilding process.  We are all grateful for their safety, and “things” are being replaced bit by bit.

My 2 nieces and nephew need some fun in their lives.  My brother is a cancer survivor, and they have a special needs child.  They don’t complain and are thankful for all the blessings they’ve been given.  I think this opportunity to be near the ocean at this gorgeous resort would brighten their lives and give them time to heal as a family. — Dawn


My parents deserve such a wonderful gift. They are always there for our family from guiding us when we became parents to celebrating our accomplishments or helping us overcome the loss of my mother-in-law. The year we got married, they celebrated 30 years of marriage. With preparations for the wedding, they were not able to plan a trip for their own special day. We have always wanted to make that up to them but could never afford to do something so special. They recently celebrated their 40th anniversary. But again, they made no plans and watched our three-year-old daughter while my husband and I celebrated our 10th anniversary at Now Jade. They are an inspiration to me as individuals, a couple and as parents. We are blessed and thankful and would love for them to celebrate 40 years of marriage at Now Jade. — Stephanie


After 10 years of marriage, we have two beautiful children that keep us on our toes and by your slogan “live in the moment” is just what we are doing. We cherish the time we spend with each other, laughing at silly movies, playing games with the kids or just taking walks. The legacy we would like to leave with our kids is the one of “caring for others”. Last year we had the opportunity to visit Puerto Morelos to teach our kids about giving. We asked our friends and coworkers for school materials, clothes and toys for children in Puerto Morelos. With smiling faces, our kids gave their toys along with other items directly to the children at the primary school. Our thanks to El Mundo para Puerto Morelos for helping us. My family would love to see the children’s smiling faces again, along with enjoying the refreshing resort Now Jade. — Maurice
