Send Henry to College

Hello!  This campaign is about a young man named Henry Vasquez who lives in Guatemala and wants to go to college.  

Henry, along with his sister Melisa and mother Olga, fostered our son Oliver for the first 19 months of his life, and not only gave Oliver a wonderful foundation of love and care in that critical time, but they did it for dozens of children over the years.

This family opened their home and hearts, and now, we are trying to repay that kindness.

My wife Kirsten and I committed to putting Henry and Melisa through high school, because basic education is not free in Guatemala.  Now that Henry is ready for college, we are asking for help.  University in Guatemala is *considerably* less expensive than in the States, but is still too large a cost for us to carry alone.

Sending Henry to 5 years of school to become a therapist, which is his goal, will be $3500.  Please help in any way you can, and I will give you updates and news as I am able.

Education like this is a LIFE CHANGER.  Thank you so much in advance for any and all help you are able to give.
