$20 Uniforms for Christmas
Organized by: Daniela Weaver
This Christmas, give a gift that counts! We have 125 Guatemalan students in need of uniforms!
For just $20, give the gift of education to one child! In Guatemala, although public education is "free", students who cannot afford the uniform are not permitted to attend.
Hogar Miguel Magone is a private foundation and is home to 125 Guatemalan children who have been taken away from abusive or incarcerated parents. This foundation receives no government help. January is one of the hardest times for the home as this is when the new school year begins.
Each child needs shoes, school supplies, and full uniform. Our goal is to help them as much as we can. Through previous fundraisers this year, we have been able to purchase/collect 2 new pairs of shoes per child (one leather dress pair and one tennis pair). Now, we are aiming our sights on providing the complete uniform to each child. For only $20, you can provide the entire uniform to one fortunate child. This includes: 2 dress shirts, 1 pair of dress pants or 1 skirt, 1 pair of sweatpants, 2 pairs of socks and underwear, and 2 white t-shirts. This will allow your child to go to school for the whole year.
Please reach deep into your heart and remember the true reason we celebrate Christmas. Let's make a world of difference together!
