Warm and Safe Children's Place
Organized by: Michelle Walpole
Hello everyone, As some of you already know, I've already collected a lot of school supplies to bring with me. Elim Santa Lucía Iglesia is a church located here in Guatemala which specializes in not only spreading God's word, but also helping people find hope in poverty and difficult situations. I had a chance to look at the children's church and it made me very sad. While it was meant to be a place for children to go and feel welcome, this isn't an ideal place for children to be spending time. They need a place to feel welcomed and loved. Therefore, I need YOUR HELP to completely transform this space. While raising 350 dollars may seem daunting in such a short time, this is an opportunity to give money to a cause where you know where the money is going. The 350 USD will buy paint, drywall, some carpeting, tables, chairs, and some simple organizers, and more supplies to completely transform this space. If I can get enough money, I will complete this project before coming back to the states next Thursday.
