THE STORY:

This year the Atlantic coast of Colombia has been affected by severe floods. There are 1.8 million affected people who have lost their homes and all their belongings. Typically children return to school in early February and unless we help them they will have no notebooks, pencils, backpacks or any other school supplies.
As a native from Colombia who now lives in New York City full time, my goal is to raise money and volunteer to buy school supplies for the children of Plato, a small town in the Atlantic Coast with a population of 66,000 thousand people. There are 8,450 displaced families that are living in temporary shelters and the local government is doing everything they can to help this families survive the tragedy.
My goal is to raise USD $ 1,000.00 and coordinate with local volunteers in order to buy school supplies for the children of Plato. I will be volunteering by running the fundraising operation and coordinating the purchasing and delivery of the supplies.
Returning to school and seeing familiar faces will provide a glimmer of hope to these children who have lost everything.
