THE STORY:

Querida familia y amig@s,

 

En cinco meses, voy a correr el Maraton de Big Sur para apoyar el organismo internacional Save the Children. 

Entrenar en el invierno de DC, en EUA, no esta facil, pero hay una buena causa de por medio.

En el ultimo año, he tenido la oportunidad de aprender un poco sobre sus practicas y el impacto que esta organizacion ha tenido. Por ejemplo, por medio de sus programas en 9 paises de America Latina (incluyendo Mexico), Save the Children ha impactado la vida de mas de 25 millones de niñ@s, parte del 25 por ciento de la poblacion del Continente que vive en niveles de pobreza y pobreza extrema. Tambien aprendi que, en promedio, 90 de los fondos recaudados por Save the Children se invierten directamente en sus programas—nada mal!

Asi pues, les pido su ayuda para motivarme a salir de la cama en las mañanas cuando haya que entrenar en el frio, sabiendo que ayudaremos juntos a promover una buena causa.

El total a recaudar es de $1,500 USD. Los donativos se pueden hacer directamente en mi pagina personal (INSERT LINK). Cualquier monto con el que puedan contribuir es bienvenido, y sera muy agradecido.

 

Abrazos, y gracias por ser la mera neta.

 

~*~*~*~*~*~**~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Dear family and friends,
 

In a couple of months, I'll be running the Big Sur Marathon to support Save the Children, an international organization.

I know the winter of D.C. is really not the toughest time or place to train, but it's also not that fun, let me tell you. All the same, there's a good cause to consider.

In the last year, I've had the opportunity to learn about the Save the Children's practice, and the impact it's had. For instance, via the programs it runs in nine Latin American countries (including Mexico), it has impacted over 25 million children, an important component of the Continent's population living in poverty or extreme poverty. I also learned that, on average, 90 percent of Save the Children's funding are invested directly in their programs—not bad!

And so, I'm writing to ask for your help to motivate me out of my bed in the cold mornings, knowing that together we can promote a good cause.

The total funds to be raised for the Marathon's registration add up to $1,500 USD. Donations can be made directly in my personal page (INSERT LINK). Any amount you can contribute with will be welcome, and I'll be very thankful indeed.


Big hugs, and thank you for being the best!
