Mexicos children' Earthquake relief

The children effected by the Earthquake in Mexico need your help.My name is Jessica Grijalva and I'm here to tell you a little about myself and what my dreams intend to do. I dont come from a family of wealth or high education but theres something most dont have that i did, passion. My father taught me young if you are really passionate about something, no matter what, you would find success and happiness in it. I found this fulfillment in helping others. I had previously went to cuba and tried to help by giving water, clothes and personal items, there apreciation for something so simple brought tears to my eyes and a need to give more. It wasnt nearly enough. Now i will be taking a trip to Mexico City and Oaxaca. Im not a woman of riches and am asking for help in this journey. Asking you to give back to a Mother, a Father, a Daughter, a Son and other families in need. My grandmother knows of a School for low income children in Oaxaca and an Orphanage called Casa Hogar in Morelia who needs our help. I will be purchasing items they cant recieve and taking them in duffle bags. If possible i would also like to give them funds  for items that they may need such as food. Many dont know this but the roads too Oaxaca are flooded so getting what they need is a bit difficult right now. Lets show these kids that the world isnt cruel but that kindness and chivalry is still alive and well. I intend to do this until I just cant anymore. As i obtain more knowledge and intellegence I believe i can do great things and this is merely" A step for humanity."
Thank you for your time.
