BELIEVE: Help us help Guatemala!

BELIEVE: Hello Friends and Family! Thank you for visiting our fundraising page - please help us raise $5,555 so we can travel to Guatemala, build a three-classroom bottle school, and give generations of Guatemalan children the opportunity to receive a formal education!

Throughout the past three years, Justin Gadrim, Kato Pascal, and I (Michael Tirpak) have all played a significant role in raising $20,000+ to build a three-classroom bottle school in Guatemala, that will impact 10's of thousands of children throughout the next hundred years.

In order to follow through with the fundraising campaign, we had to make many sacrifices, the most significant of those being our financial well-being.
With that being said, we now have the life-changing opportunity to physically participate in the building of this school... but we need HELP!!

Please help us reach our goal so we can send Kato Pascal, his son Kato Jr, Justin Gadrim, and I to Guatemala to impact generations!

Any and all donations are greatly appreciated. Thank you for your continued support, generosity, and well wishes.

We love you, and can't wait to be in Guatemala making a tangible impact.
