BENEFITING: MERCADO GLOBAL INC
EVENT DATE: Dec 24, 2016
We got married, and instead of doing a regestry we would like to fundraise for an organisation we love. Mercado Global (http://www.mercadoglobal.org) works with indigenous women in Guatemala. At first glance, Mercado Global looks like a fashion brand, but they are so much more. They empower women by giving them skills which help support their families. They create beautiful handcrafted products that are made by the indigenous women that they support. A lot of these women did not get a chance to go to school, and they grew up in a country where they were not valued. Thanks to the support that Mercado Global is offering, now these women are able to provide education to their children, and earn a large part of their home's income. Paul and I already have a wonderful and fortunate life. We don't need anything but your help in supporting these women.
