Their initiatives include the Border Health Campaign, which addresses cross-border health care issues, and the Give2Baja Campaign, which creates a sustainable and balanced community in Baja California by increasing philanthropy in the areas of education, health care, community development, the environment, economic development and culture, and the arts.
