We need your help. We’re asking you to rally your friends and family to do something big about injustice this summer by helping us launch the fourth academy in a dangerous neighborhood in the heart of Guatemala City.
This month, we need to raise $25,000 to cover the costs of launching this new academy. In addition to one-time donations through our easy online platform, we’re also looking for people like you who are willing to become fundraisers, which means recruiting people you know to give to a specific part of the academy, like a classroom, the kitchen, or the psychologist’s office.
We have five individual fundraisers so far. Our goal is to double that number for a total of 10 individual fundraisers by the end of the day today.
When you choose to start an online fundraising page, you are helping to spread the word about expanding holistic impact to reach extremely vulnerable children.
Getting Started is Simple
- Select “Become a Fundraiser”
- Set your fundraising goal
- Personalize your page to share why you are fundraising to launch the fourth academy
- Spread the word by sharing with your friends, family, colleagues, small group, neighborhood association, and other networks through email and social media.
- Encourage your kids to get creative and join in helping reach your goal!
The Power of Teamwork
Imagine if you raise $500. Then imagine that five friends join your team and raise $500 each. You will have funded an entire classroom!
Imagine if you raise $1,000. Then imagine that five friends join your team and raise $1,000 each. You will have covered the costs of the academy for a whole month!
