For many local San Pedro Indigenous Maya Tz'utujil people, Tourism is an important part of the local economy. COVID-19 has completely obliterated this industry and has caused difficulty for some people to feed their families.
San Pedro has been a special place for me since the first time i visited. I spoke to my local friend Henry, he is owner of "Guatemala Sur Mesure Travel" and like a brother to me. I heard that he was hosting children in his home who had come into town hungry, in need of food. Hearing this, I felt compelled to help. Guatemala has opened its borders recently, but it will take time for things to hopefully return to "normal". I hope to help bridge that time by getting food to those truly in need.
Any amount truly helps as $30-$40 can feed a family for a month.
If you donate $20 or more (by 12/28 2020) i will send a custom screen printed T-shirt ($3-5 goes to shipping). Message Me Here with your full mailing address info and a screenshot/other proof of your donation. (USA only) PICTURES BELOW
I Return (Covid Willing) to San Pedro on December 29, 2020. I will be teaming up with Henry and his family to make food baskets. All food will be bought from the local community and distributed to families in need using the funds from this fundraiser.
Stay in Touch! and THANK YOU for your generosity :)
