BENEFITING: AMISTAD FOUNDATION
Who inspires you? For me, it's the heart of service that my family has lived for and stood for that inspires me everyday. This is why, I am so thankful, humbled and hopeful that later this month, my mom, my grandma and I are joining are group of good-hearted and high-spirited individuals on a service trip to Guatemala through the organization the Amistad Foundation.
Where do you turn during the rainy seasons in your life? For me, it's home--it's family. There are 14 families, in one of the villages (vagueness is for security reasons) we are visiting that don't have a safe place to go when the torrential rain comes. We want to help provide them a safe home by providing them roofs over their shelter. The cost to do this is $2,200. Divided by 14, the cost is $157 per home. Our goal is to raise enough funds to fund seven of these roofs, $1,100.
While there, I will be able to capture photos of the people in the village and help us all connect and enjoy in this journey together. Upon my return, I will share the pictures and insights with you so you know your money went to a good cause.
