Beds for Pilgrims in Tabara: a Peaceable Project!

Many, various, and continuing.
The latest Peaceable Project opportunity is in Tabara, in Zamora province on the Camino Sanabres branch of the Via de la Plata.
The little donativo albergue there opened 16 years ago, and thousands of pilgrims have dined, rested, and slept there since. But 16 years of hard use have taken a toll on the seven bright orange bunks... about a third of them are beyond repair. The mattresses that were new back in 2003 are now.. pretty flat! So... new beds, and 14 new mattresses are needed.

Jose Almeida, the visionary in charge, has some money saved up, but if we can raise 2,000 euro we can re-equip the whole place before the 2019 season kicks off.
Wadda ya say, folks?
No donativo is too small or large, and Peaceable Projects Inc. is a 501c3 registered charity in the United States.

Thank you for posting this, Rebekah; I sent a $250.00 donation earmarked for that project.

Please, folks, contribute what you can.

I say, YES! Brava and Bravo, Reb and Jose.
(And never let an opportunity to be generous go by without offering a little something because it all adds up, both the happiness on the giving end and the total amount on the receiving end.
Thanks, Rebekah, for the bringing all of us into the joy loop!)

Thanks for doing this, Rebekah, and greetings again from your hometown! Site visited, donation made, and may well stop by the albergue on this Spring VdlP hike. Best wishes for your projects!

Done. @Rebekah Scott I didn’t note that it was for Tabara, can you ensure that’s what I donated $200 towards? Hope there are new beds by April 4th 😉

As this is one of my all-time favourite albergues I am glad to make a contribution that will enable Jose to continue to provide such outstanding hospitality. As well as money, however, Jose surely deserves more consideration than some pilgrims have shown him. When I stayed there last Spring, of the ten guests who had assented to his offer of breakfast at 7 a.m. only three honoured the agreement. While it may have been too late a start for some of the walkers, they could, and indeed should, have said so at dinner the night before. I don’t think I would have been as gracious as he was at the discourtesy. Thank you, @Rebekah Scott for your active support for his mission.

Twice walked from St Jean to Estella and once from Sarria to Santiago. Maybe someday I'll find the time to do the entire walk.
I've found the time. Just completed SJPP to Santiago. 25 Aug to 1st Oct, 2016.
And now the Portuguese from Lisbon.
Donated $100.
The Tabara albergue is small, the same can't be said of the heart of the hospitalero. He's a good man.

Made a small donation and I am pleased to see that others are doing the same.
Jose Almeida is so devoted to the camino. It's inspiring.
