BENEFITING: SEEDS OF LOVE

Clare Von Herbulis

THE STORY:

Semillas de Amor (Seeds of Love) is an amazing home and school for once abandoned children in Parramos, Guatemala.  I had the pleasure of visiting and meeting the children and staff in February, 2012 and I have since become extremely passionate about doing my part to help these amazing children not only survive, but to continue to safely thrive with the good values, education, health, love and respect that they receive at Semillas de Amor and would otherwise not receive. While these children are taught to embrace their Guatemalan culture and heritage, they are also taught that the world is full of possibilities, that they are each responsible for the future and to break the poverty cycle in which they were born.

In short, international adoptions in Guatemala were stopped in 2007 so what was once a temporary home for orpahned babies until they could go to a loving family, is now a home and school for these 25 children. The entire facility is run on the generous donations and contributions of others. No grants, no government assistance - ALL donations. In addition to the $18K per month operating fees required to keep the home and school open, funds are needed for other specific initiatives (purchasing beds as the children grow, purchasing a van to transport children safely, etc.) This is where you can help!!  

Please join me in helping me reach my goal of raising $5,000 by February 1, 2013 marking my 1 year anniversary of meeting these smiling faces of hope.  You can make a monetary donation right here on this site. All you have to do is click on the orange DONATE button at the top right of the page.

If you would like to contribute in other ways, have fundraising ideas, want to be a team member or would like more information, please contact me!

VIEW THE VIDEO!...to the left is a photo video that I created just after my trip where you can get a glimpse of just how beautiful these children are and all of the amazing benefits of giving! They are some of the most precious, gracious and smart children that I have ever met and they simpy stole my heart. 

On behalf of myself and each child at Semillas de Amor, THANK YOU & MUCHAS GRACIAS!!
