The Cacciutti family has announced that they will donate 150 Disney scooter helmets to help protect Cozumel children and to raise awareness for the Lazarus Council Charity.  “Child helmets can be hard to find on the island, and expensive for young families to afford, yet the lack of head protection can result in a child’s death”, explains John Cacciutti. “One of the core principles of the Lazarus Council is to assist thosewho are struggling, and these helmets will help those most in need and will save precious lives.”

The first 100 helmets have been ordered from Mario’s on Avenue 50 and are due to arrive on the island within days. The remainders are infant helmets, which are not available locally  and will have to be imported from the United States. The family plans to give the helmets away at public events on the island, such as festivals and fishing tournaments,  but you can also request a helmet by emailing

John Cacciutti and his family spend a lot of time in cozumel and have plans to eventually build a home here as well.  During their visits, they would often see families with small children on scooters and imagined how devastating it would be if a child was injured in an accident.  They have teamed up with the Lazarus Council to help solve this problem here in Cozumel.
