BENEFITING: Integral Heart Foundation
Martita is 14 and is in first year of high-school. She lives up the mountain of Vista Hermosa with her father, mother and seven siblings. They are also other siblings with wifes, husbands, and children all crammed in the same shack… The father and the mother work as seasonal farmers for different harvests. They also pick up wood in the mountains to sell in the market. They is never enough to feed the family, let alone pay for school. Martita begs to study though, so that she can achieve her dream of becoming a vet.
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 Marita 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!
