Mariana's Home

On April 12, 2018, Mariana and Gabriel woke up with their typical happy-go-lucky smiles and went to school! Their father (my younger brother Abelardo) got up and went to work with his typical drive to impress his employers and support his family. Unfortunately, destiny had other plans. That Friday morning, my brother slipped and fell to his death. Just like that, in the time it takes to fall 3 stories, his life was extinguished.  Mariana, like all of us in the family are devastated.

My brother had been working for 2 years to build a house with his own hands on evenings and weekends. The house is about 3/4 through completion and I am fundraising in hopes of finishing the partial house my brother left behind. It would give his family a place to live. I estimate the cost of completing to be about $5,000 but anything I can raise would help. On behalf of my brother and his family I thank you in advance for your generosity.
