THE STORY:

I turned 40 this year and I have adopted the saying: "It's tough getting old." And it is. Our muscles ache more, old injuries come into play, and we search out comfort and have a tough time actually finding it.  Now, that is what it's like for us Americans. Imagine the aging process in the rural lands of Guatemala. No bed to cuddle up in, no chocolate ice cream before bed, no heating pads for our aches and pains. Just a lot of hardship and hunger and pain.  

We had the opportunity to meet 30 beautiful elderly people from the San Jorge Feeding Center. We had the honor to serve them a delicious meal of "Pepian" and leave them each with a goody bag of comfort items.  It was so beautiful to see them cherish this gift.  

I wanted to make them feel as special as they are. They are such strong, resilient people who deserve so much, but receive so little.  It is my desire to help raise a little money to see them get a bit of this deserving attention.  Any amount you can give will surely be helpful. 

Mayan Families' Elderly Care program allows them to bring life-sustaining food and medical care to people who would otherwise be left to die.
