"Today is an unforgettable day for me, without doubt a special day... Two years ago I spent Christmas with the children and that day changed my life. I knew I had to do something; this is something very personal for me. It is a day that I'll never forget," were Marc Anthony's words at the Maestro Cares Foundation first orphanage inauguration earlier today.

A beautiful day indeed for 100 young boys in La Romana, Dominican Republic to move into their new home built for them with lots of love and faith. The endless hours of work, dedication, and sweat from many involved in the Maestro Cares Foundation has finally come to light. It was a mission for two founders salsa singer Marc Anthony and Henry Cardenas were set to make a reality since November 2012 with their non-profit organization - Maestro Cares Foundation.

The inauguration of the first orphanage built, Niños de Cristo, was attended by Colombian actor Manolo Cardona, merengue singer Rubby Perez, bachata singer Romeo Santos, President of the Dominican Republic Margarita Cedeño de Fernandez; the President of the Senate, Reynaldo Pared Pérez among other dignitaries and celebrities. Mr. Perez recognized Marc Anthony for his labor of love with his foundation. The ribbon cutting ceremony was also celebrated with a group of children singing Marc Anthony's hit song "Vivir Mi Vida".

Niños de Cristo is more than an orphanage, it is a home for the boys to grow healthy, be sheltered, educated, play but most importantly be loved and prepared for a successful future.

This is the first orphanage of many more to be built in Latin America and the Caribbean. The next Maestro Cares Foundation project will be in Colombia.

Changing lives, building dreams.

Congrats to Marc Anthony, Henry Cardenas, the workers, volunteers, sponsors, and donors in making Maestro Cares Foundation first mission a reality and many more to come.
