BENEFITING: Corazon De Vida Foundation
Corazon de Vida is a USA non profit organization that provides life sustaining support for over 750 children living at 14 Baja orphanages. Donors, sponsors and volunteers provide food, water, education, dental, medical, housing, gasoline, propane, electricity, septic, housing, daily emergency support, and much much more.
Lambda Theta Alpha is a sisterhood based on unity love and respect. Our chapter philanthropy at CalPoly San Luis Obispo CSU is Backpacks 4 Kidz. We will be working closely with the children from the Casa Hogar Ebenezer orphanage this year, April/May 2013. After evaluation of what the orphanage is at greatest necessity for we will be no longer filling backpacks with school supplies, but instead fundraise and send money to the orphanage for their shelter, mobility, and clothing. They are in need of repairing a leaky roof ($4,000.00 US for material and labor) and four tires for the Jeep Cherokee ($92.00 each) to transport the children to and from school. Also, sweatpants and new underwear for the children are in high demand, since they purchase them every three or four months.
For the last five years we have been able to make this happen with the support of many organizations, and people with great hearts willing to help others, and it has been a great success. This year we hope it’ll be the same or even better. We are excited to be able to help these kids, and hope you can join us in making a bit of a difference in their lives. Every bit helps!
