I am starting a new fundraising campaign for April 2022! We are OPEN FOR DONATIONS so we can continue on our mission to bring drinking water to the local indigenous communities of Lake Atitlan. So stay tuned!!!
WHY I'M DOING THIS AND HOW IT STARTED:
In an effort to help them have access to an unlimited supply of clean water and to cut down on their use of plastic bottles (which is a huge problem in the area!), we started a personal initiative where we would donate a filtering unit (Ecofiltro) to one of the families whenever we would come through. We would also bring the filter replacements whenever the time would come, since each filter is good for up to 2 years. So far, we had managed to donate to all of our homestay families, then to the school, church and fire department! We were doing great!
But all of a sudden Covid hit, and our operations came to a complete stop so we haven't been able to revisit the community and there are 18 filters that need to be replaced ASAP because they are about to expire!!!
Soooo this is where YOU come in!
Help me buy the 18 filter replacements (27UDS each) and get them to the community... pretty please! Now, I know Covid has hit a lot of us very hard, especially in our pockets but any little bit helps into making sure that our friends in San Jorge can keep having access to clean, plastic free water!
So thank you in advance for your help and donation and or sharing the cause!
If you want more information on the pricing or on how the filtering units we donated work, you can find it here: https://www.ecofiltro.com.gt/es/como-funciona
PS: Thank you to all those amazing hearts out there that donated the units in the first place during our visits together! They have made a big impact in the lives of the local families'. Hopefully we can go back on the road soon enough and continue with our efforts to get a unit to all the families in the community.
