School Uniforms for Cangrejo

$1,650 of $2,500 goal

Raised by 19 people in 29 months
Many of the children in the impoverished village of Cangrejo cannot attend school, for the simple reason that they do not have a school uniform.  Here in the Dominican Republic, children are prohibited from attending classes if they do not have the appropriate attire.   For the cost of $25, we can provide a child with a school shirt, pants or skirt, shoes, belt and a backpack.

Over the past two years, we have been able to send over 150 children to school, and with help from our generous supporters.   If you would like to help one of the children in need, your support will be very much appreciated.

I am so, so proud to introduce you to the 128 beautiful children of Cangrejo who will be now be going to school on Monday. I hope you enjoy this little "Thank You" letter from each and every one.

Thanks to all of you who helped make this program possible. We were able to raise $2,725 and send 128 children to school this year! Education truly is the greatest gift we can give a child..

85% and counting!!!

Thanks to GoFundMe and cash donations, we are getting really close to our target!! *applause*

I know that with the state of the world today, people are tightening the purse strings. But you know, if 50 people threw in the price of one cup of their morning coffee, 6 more kids could go to school. That cup of coffee could give a child what is likely the only chance they will ever have of changing their lives, and the lives of their families. Every day I wake up, I see the difference we can make with just a little money, and a whole lot of love. Trust me on that.

Also, never underestimate the power of social media. Helping can also mean just sharing a link. If you can help me keep this campaign going for another week, I am confident that we can reach our goal.


Last years donations helped these kids!
