We are almost half of the way to our goal. Only $4,800 to go. Can you help us?
Our dilemma: 22 shelter children living at Casa Mara Amor + 78 shelter children living outside the shelter x $95 = $9,500. This is the amount needed to provide our children with shoes, uniforms, underwear, backpacks and supplies. (Please note: thanks to our mailing list generosity and you wonderful people on GringoPost and Facebook, we have raised $4700 of this goal since last Friday)
How you can help: We are looking for more $95 sponsors to help our kids return to school. If you can afford more, that would be great too.
If you are unable to contribute the entire amount at this time, we are also offering $20 partial sponsorships.
Scholarship payments can be made through PayPal or dropped off at Mujeres Con Exito.
