Hello, my name is Edwin Gabriel I am six years old and I have a dream of building a school for poor children in rural indigenous Guatemala; for this purpose I have started selling Ghirardelli's Triple Chocolate chip cookies to raise funds to build the first classroom for 60 children.

I have to raise US$15,000 to build my first classroom.  For this purpose I am selling packets with five cookies at US$5.00 each.  You can also donate to my cause at VENMO and GoFundMe @CookiesWithAPurpose

I hope my dream, my story and purpose inspires you to help me improve education for those that most need it, and so changing the world one project at a time.

The pictures I share are from a project my brother Felipe who now is eleven but who also started with his own social enterprise when he was also age six with www.iniciativaf.com
