BENEFITING: Integral Heart Foundation
Maritza is 12 and is studying 5 class. She has never known her father. Her mother works selling tortillas, she has a brother who is 10 and an older sister of 17 (who doesn’t work) who already has a baby and a boyfriend (whose money only is enough for the baby). They all live in the same house. Maritza doesn't want to follow the family tradition of becoming a teenage mother. She wants to study, go to college one day and help her family. Can you help her?
Overview of Situation
Children are the most innocent victims of poverty. In countries like Guatemala, some poor kids are left without the oppertunity to get an education. But with a little outside help from us, we can change the course of someones's life by giving her the chance for an education. $500 is all it takes to provide basic needs for one child for one year through the Integral Heart Foundation.
With today's technology, we can make a tangible difference in the lives of the less fortunate from our smart phones by donating whatever we can. To act on that, I am reaching out to family and friends like you to help me give Maritza the chance for an education. Please be generous and join me in this effort. Together we can make a real difference in he and her family's life!
