I'm Giving Up My Birthday

$250 of $1,000 goal

Raised by 3 people in 5 months
Hello! Whether you got here from Facebook, Twitter, or my blog, thanks for stopping by!! This year, I'm giving up my birthday and instead asking for donations for one of my best friends and her family. AND THEY DON'T KNOW I'M DOING THIS so if you know them, PLEASE DON'T TELL!!! I don't know how long I'll be able to keep this a secret from them, since I'm asking mutual friends to share, but I'm trying!

The Santos family (Courtney, Jacob, and Micah) recently moved from Guatemala, where they've been missionaries since 2015, to Colombia, where they will begin their own mission. Courtney will be teaching bible-based English classes and Jacob will be giving music lessons. They will also be providing food and medical aid to villagers in remote areas, and providing aid to individuals who have been displaced because of paramilitary, gang, and drug trafficking violence.

The work Santos Missions does is funded by donors, and I am raising money around my birthday this year to donate to the mission. Please consider donating, sharing this page, and/or praying for the fundraiser and their mission.  IF YOU SHARE THIS PAGE ON FACEBOOK AND KNOW COURTNEY OR JACOB OR ANYONE IN THEIR FAMILY (mom, sister, brother, dad), PLEASE CHANGE THE SETTINGS OF THE POST SO THEY CAN'T SEE IT. See photo below for how to do this. If they accidentally find out, it's not the end of the world, but I want it to be a surprise.

I will be giving them the money on my birthday, January 4th, 2018.
