First of all, let me say THANK YOU to those of you that donated to this cause last year. Your compassion and donation allowed us to raise enough money for a full years sponsorship for one child. In addition, we raised enough money to sponsor the child for half of a second year. This year we are just $700 shy of completing the second year of sponsorship!!
Come join me in fundraising for SAFE PASSAGE (Camino Seguros) and the families of the Guatemala City garbage dump! This organization works to empower the poorest of families in this community through Educational Reinforcement, Early Childhood Development, Adult Literacy, Health and Nutrition, and Social Entrepreneurship programs.
In 2013, Safe Passage's programs enabled more than 550 children from this community to attend school, giving them the skills necessary to graduate high school, secure stable jobs, to be self-sufficient, and to lead their families out of poverty in a dignified and permanent way. For many of the children, attending school would be near impossible without this organization's help and guidance.
Although we ran the 21K last year, this year we will use our time to work directly with the families at the project. I appreciate any support you can give. And, you can make a real difference in the lives of so many. Thank you all in advance!
With heartfelt gratitude,
