Today, I am going to tell you about what first got me interested in forming this organization.

After visiting Honduras, I fell in love and came home wanting to help out. A school project came up where I had to note a challenge and try to fix it. This was the perfect opportunity for me to help out. After months of planning, I started a supplies drive. I collected mainly school supplies and nonperishable foods. After I gained a huge amount of supplies from my school drive, I went to my local target and picked up a few fun things for the kids that weren’t donated by others.

There were the flyers hung around my school during the drive.

After a series of emails with the organization head, Lynn, I was ready to ship. The shipping process was intensive, which included various forms and packing techniques.

The final collected supplies that was being sent to Honduras totaled over 500 dollars. I was amazed, and hopeful about my community.

I was honored to participate in this project, and it inspired me to start Little Known Help Zone, which focuses on many Central American charities and projects.
