My Message

Hi Everyone,

I had the privilege for the 3rd year in a row to go back to visit the villagers in Guatemala. We went back to visit Parrequena, which we had successfully fundraised for last year. Not unlike the previous year, it was an amazing transformation to see how their lives have changed to having clean water. This year's village is Talaxcoc. Talaxcoc is in a mountainous region and the distance to get water is far. As mentioned by one of the villagers, that the river/streams of water are starting to dry up so they need to walk further and further away to get water. This year I had another opportunity to experience the struggle that they experience by walking down to the river and I can personally tell you how difficult it is. The walk to the families home was about 30 minutes and from there it took about 45 minutes to get down to the river. I cannot imagine doing this 4 to 5 times per day, translating to 8 to 10 hours of walking to get water, all while carrying heavy and wet laundry or heavy containers of water. How blessed is our life where we can have clean running water for drinking, showering, watering our gardens, cleaning our food - all at a easy turn of the tap. 

It is my hope that with your help, we can raise enough money to give another village the opportunity for a better life. The fundraising goal for Talaxcoc is $150,000 to help 190 families and with your help we can make that goal. For every $100, gives one person water for the rest of their lives. Would you consider sponsoring me for the lives of those in Talaxcoc? 

If you are able to financially gift $20, $50, $100 or whatever you are able to give (no amount is too small, even $5, but $20 will get you a tax receipt), I and those in Guatemala would be grateful. Please know 100% of the funds raised will go directly to the water projects. All processing fees and event costs are covered by HOPE's sponsors and the collected registrations fees.
Thank you!
Andrea
