Holiday Wishes & Matching Funds #givingtuesday

This year, we’re inviting you to send your holiday greetings to the kids (and/or staff) in Peru. We’ll share your messages directly with Viviana, Avishai, and the Niños to fill the casa with love and joy from our Global Family.

In addition, your Giving Tuesday donations will be matched up to $1,750, thanks to a pledge from two of our generous donors!

Your contribution is also part of a beautiful holiday of selfless giving, designed to balance the energy of Black Friday. Namasté.

“Because we are Quechua, because we speak our language and live according to our customs, and because we don’t know how to read and write, we live in the world of the night. We have no eyes, and we are invalids like the blind. In contrast, those who know how to read and write live in daylight. They have eyes. It is senseless to stay in the world of darkness because we must progress to be like those who go to school and have eyes. Going to school, we open our eyes, we awake.”
