Lead Encourage Live Act (LELA)

We are a group of Dancing Chefs committed to enriching the lives of those less fortunate on this ever changing planet. Lela the Pig was created after the earthquake that hit Haiti in 2010. Her goal is to collect donations from guests who attend The Original Salsa and Salsa Tour in our 3 locations: Cozumel, Mazatlan and Los Cabos. Lela the Pig along with all the amazing donors have raised more than $114,000.00 USD and counting... Lela the Pig continues to donate each month to a different cause around the globe.

Who said pigs can't fly ?!

you must believe. . .

Like so many of you, I have been working my little hooves off with a variety of amazing causes and charities these past years. Every time I do something for others my heart grows bigger and bigger, full of compassion. The first words that came to mind were: Lead, Encourage, Live and Act. (LELA)

Leadership in my opinion is one of the greatest characteristics one can hold. Having leadership supports the idea of encouraging others to make a difference, living a life filled with compassion and acting on our instincts to donate to the difficult situations that occur around the world.

And even though I am just one beautiful pig, I believe that the smallest of all acts can truly make difference in the world.

"Thank you to all the Dancing Chef's who are part of Salsa and Salsa and LELA for your generous donation. It is the support of animal lovers like you that makes Sanctuary possible for our Girls here at The Elephant Sanctuary. Our mission is to provide a haven for old, sick or needy elephants in a setting of green pastures, dense forests, spring-fed ponds and heated barns for cold winter nights and educate about the crisis facing these social, passionately intense, playful, complex, exceedingly intelligent and endangered animals.
