Build a Home & Change Lives Through Fundepaz


For the past six years I've supported Fundepaz, a non-profit organization that is committed to helping people living in extreme poverty around the world. Their recent projects include building nurseries, schools and homes in the Philippines, Colombia and Guatemala. They go wherever they are needed.

One of the projects near to my heart is the annual building of homes for poor families in Dominican Republic, where my family is from. This year Fundepaz built 40 homes there! Not only do they build new homes, but they also provide furniture and any special needs items for family members with health issues. For homes where children will live, they even include new toys. I have attached a couple of before and after photos of the homes.

Giving a family a new home changes their life forever. For most people in these areas, having a safe home to live in is something they dream about, but not something they can achieve. Receiving such a generous gift not only radically improves their living conditions, but it gives them hope for a better future.

This year we would like to contribute to this very important cause by donating a home. A two-bedroom house costs $8000. I'm hoping to have good news to share  at Fundepaz's annual fundraiser on November 21.51774862_1602278389415131_r.jpeg
Would you consider helping me make one family's dream come true?

Thank you in advance for your support, whether it's a financial donation or sharing this message!
