They are two different organizations with different economic structures.
Fundación Atención Atención can offer its services to the community thanks to the support of various donors:
- Proposals to various government agencies and private Foundations.
- Companies that support us as part of their social responsibility programs.
- The generosity of private donations.
We also have a catalog of workshops that can be purchased and offered to parents, teachers and health professionals in alliance with educational institutions or companies. These allow us to continue expanding our educational offer for adults.
We also organize fundraising activities open to the general public that help finance the operation of Fundación Atención Atención.
Atención Atención is a corporation founded in 1999. It started as an educational musical project but that over the years has become the most important Hispanic children’s artist in the Caribbean and on the east coast of the United States. It includes the Atención Atención band, and celebrities such as Mr. Toad, Johnny the Lizard, Tito the Angel, Vera the Traveling Flea and the Tapita Fairy. It is also a television program that is seen in various countries and merchandising products.
For many years, Atención Atención received letters from fathers, mothers, educators and therapists about the value of their music and their programs in the education of their children or children in their care. They requested that they continue developing their work in the educational field.
This led to the birth of Fundación Atención Atención, a nonprofit organization, focused on education and developing creative experiences and educational tools that help each child reach their full potential.
The focus of both organizations is different, although both have children as the main focus of their work.
