Christmas giving in Lima, Peru!

Hello everyone,

We want to invite you to get to know a small but significant story of a woman who works tirelessly to put smiles on the faces of children of low income or resources. We need everyone’s help (all who are able) to spread some love across the country to Lima, Peru.

Our grandmother, Abuelita Lola, dedicates her time and energy during the holidays to buy as many toys/treats as she can in efforts to bless those whose family cannot receive toys on Christmas Eve.

Each child is provided with a gift (toy/clothing) and some traditional treats such as hot chocolate (chocolate Cuzco), along with a Panetton (a yummy sweet bread).

We’re hoping to provide her with more support to help her accomplish her only desire to give to those children in need, despite her own limited resources. Not many people know about Abuelita Lola’s mission during the holidays, but together we want to help her expand and give even MORE.

Ultimately, we want to extend the opportunity to everyone to play a part in her annual tradition of blessing children during the holiday. Your gift will bless more than just these children, but also a community. Funds will be used to purchase more toys, essentials and treats!

We understand finances can be difficult for any family so if you would like to support this campaign in a different way, please share this post as much as you can. We have a short window of time so help us spread the word and surprise Abuelita Lola with some help!

Thank you to everyone!

We will keep everyone who is interested updated on the results of this campaign and display pictures from last year’s gift giving! Please reach out to us if you have any questions!
