Grandma's battle for her home

Organized by: Alex Duarte

Alex's Photo


I am 14 years old and I love my grandma very much. She is a great inspiration and model to me. She is a very fair, just, honest, and hard working person. She came from El Salvador 40 years ago, with nothing but a dream of a better life. She started with nothing, and worked very hard while living in an apartment in Los Angeles with other family members. Her dream was to one day buy a house. Earning minimum wage with four kids being a single mother, she managed to save money for a down payment for a house. She eventually was able to buy her first and only home. 20 years later (present day) my grandma is 65 years old, a senior citizen without work, and some medical problems. Her only source of income is social security and picking up recyclables around the neighborhood for several hours a day. Due to this reality she is forced to sell her dream home, where she has accumulated immense memories. My brother and I were born in that house. We love this house, I love this house but mostly I love my grandma and would humbly request your help so that she can pay off her entire debt, or at the very least some of it so that she isn't forced to sell. Thank you, Alex
