BENEFITING: Integral Heart Foundation
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 destiny of three kids lives by giving them the chance for an education. $500 is all it takes to provide an education for one child for one year through the Integral Heart Foundation.
In April, I will be traveling to Guatemala to volunteer with the Integral Heart Foundation and so I am reaching out to family and friends like you to help me give three kids the chance for an education. Please be generous and join me in this effort. Together we can make a real difference in three kids lives!
