WHAT IS PATA DE MINGO?
The Website: It is a way for anyone to help Venezuelans in need. You pick an illustration you love, buy it on a T-shirt, tote bag, or any of our products. 100% of the profits go the charitable organizations doing the most change in Venezuela. It goes to the people making the BIG changes. With this money they feed children that are starving, help expecting mothers, find medicine for the sick, they do things that MATTER.
Metaphorically: Pata de Mingo is a common Venezuelan saying that means "I am right there, right next to you whenever you need me".
Literally: Mingo is the little white ball in bocce ball (Bolas Criollas in Venezuela). Pata is foot. It means at the foot of the mingo.
