Give Three Families a Place to Call their Own

53275504_160840683099757_r.jpegUpdate: I first want to thank each and everyone that has donated to this amazing cause. In our great efforts to help establish a home for these families, we learned that the little hut where they were living in was in a land that was not theirs. As we were working to find them a perfect spot to build their home, we learned that the land they were in was sold to them by an individual who claimed the land was theirs. Unfortunately this deceit has caused us to go a different route in helping these families, as building in a land that was not theirs would only cause the sad unfortunate story to repeat again: being displaced. Therefore we have been thoroughly traveling to find a perfect land where they can live in. Not only does this land need to be healthy so they can farm and live off their grains, but we need to find a land where a house can be build, or a land that already has a house on it. It is because of this that we have had to increase our gofundme goal. We want to establish something permanent where the children can live on, where five years from now they do not have to worry about not having a place to stay. We need to establish plumbing so the privilege of having a toilet and shower is at their reach. It is the simplest things in life that we take for granted that these families have not had the privilege to experience. We are going to keep pushing our goal so the families we are helping have a permanent home with walls, floors and plumbing. Thank you all so much, I will keep posting videos of potential land we can buy. Please follow our journey, because this journey is as much as these families as it is to every single one of you who have donated so far. God Bless!53275504_1608406618955967_r.jpegThis is their kitchen.

Hi friends please take moment of your time to help build a home for a beautiful family. Today I had the pleasure of meeting some family members here in Colombia, they are beautiful humble people that sadly have had it difficult. They lived in a place called Meta in Colombia and were farmers, had a little ranch and had everything they needed but years ago they were displaced by a guerrilla group. Sadly after many years the government has not come thru with giving them land or a home back. They have managed to buy a little piece of land on the mountain side and built a hut but it is very unstable... there is no floor no real plumbing and no walls even ... it’s like the walls are plastic bags and the floor is dirt ... I am so happy I got to meet them and really want to help them build a house there ... it would be around 15k to build so I am asking for donation thru this media and I am also going to donate myself  and have also asked family members to help. Anyways anything you can do will be greatly appreciated I will def be sharing progress and pics I will put a video of what it looks like right now on my Facebook. Please help me make this come true and you don’t ever have to buy me presents ever again not for christmases or birthdays or ever again. If you didn’t buy me presents well please just help I wish I could just do it on my own but it would be impossible for me at the moment love that you even read this much and thanks to anyone that will help.
