NEED TO RAISE $450 ASAP to purchase this trailer for Johanna and her 9 children! I am so pleased to announce that I have finally found a trailer perfect for Johanna and her 9 children. As many of you know, in September, while I was in San Felipe, there was a flash flood and a single mother with 9 children lost their trailer. After 2 months of searching, I found a perfect trailer for the family and although I have been able to raise $1250, the cost of the trailer is $1700 plus the cost to register it and the cost for plates. I will pick up the cost of the registration, plates and expenses to transport it but as a full-time student with no income, I cannot cover the additional $450 needed to gift this family a HOME.

Johanna and her children are currently living in the 8×6 plywood home that Eli and Efrain were living in prior to us raising enough money to move them into their new home. To say that their current living conditions are unsuitable, is an understatement!

In addition to raising $450, I would like to ask for any donations for household goods that will be used to decorate and furnish the trailer for this family. If you have any bedding, kitchen, bathroom and decor items that you would like to donate to this family, please let me know.

I will also be having a cleaning, painting and decorating party next Saturday in anyone is interested in lending a hand to turn this trailer into a beautiful home for this family. I already know that with the assistance of family and friends, raising the $450 will not be an issue so let’s get together and truly make a huge difference in the lives of Johanna and her children.

If you’re able to donate, regardless of the amount, please let me know as soon as possible. It goes without saying that ever little bit will help.

I will be heading down to San Felipe on November 25th to deliver the trailer to Johanna and her children……. Help be the change you wish to see in the world.

Thank you in advance for all of your support, love, kindness and generosity. We have already contributed so much to the lives of so many poverty stricken men, women and children in San Felipe…… We will be doing it once again!
