WSE Color-a-Thon After Party

Saturday morning was a wonderful time for Little Known Help Zone at WSE’s color-a-thon after party.

Check our some pictures from the event below.

Yoga Fundraiser Success

Saturday’s yoga fundraiser was a success, drawing some new support in from the community and creating a day of peace and philanthropy. A total of $70 has been added to the goal, which leaves a remainder of about $600 to go!

The class was wonderful at West End, taught by Jamie, and catered to all ages from 6 to 70! The event really showed how we all can join together to support one common cause.

Next month will be another fundraiser at Western Salisbury, and hopefully will bring us closer to the goal!

Monetary Update and Donations

At about the midpoint of the planned fundraisers, it is time for an update on the success of the 3 causes. The goal was $200 to send a child to an English Language Program, $200 to buy a playground toy for an orphanage in Honduras, and $360 to send a child to school for a year in Guatemala.

Little Known Help Zone has made wonderful strides, but more need to be made to reach these goals. In the future there will be a yoga fundraiser and another fundraiser at Western Elementary, and this will bring us closer to our goal.

If you would like to contribute further to these causes, please contact Makenna Lenover at littleknownhelpzone@gmail.com

Every dollar counts and this would make a huge difference.

$683 more to go to reach the goal of $760 for the 3 causes in Central America.

Thank you for all your support in these endeavors.

Guatemala- Mayan Families

The work for Guatemala has been complete.

Little Known Help Zone will be selling handmade crayons, a dollar a piece, to raise the $360 needed to send a child to school in Guatemala through mayanfamilies.org

No crayon is the same, just like no child is the same. 

As of now, 6 dozen crayons are available to buy, and Little Known Help Zone is requesting donations of broken or old crayons from locals in the community to work and make more crayons. The more sold, the more children sent to school!

The crayons will be spread out on the table so children can view all of them and choose.

After the event, these will be listed on easy for purchase.

Fundraiser Cause #3- Honduras

The third and final country Little Known Help Zone will be helping this fundraiser is Honduras, a repetitive country in Little Known Help Zone’s history.

This time, we will be donating to Mama Tara’s orphanage, specifically towards their playground. Mama Tara supports the Miskito Indians, who live on the Mosquito coast and are caught in the fire of Honduran drug wars. The goal is to raise $200, hopefully enough to put in a seesaw, or another fun playground piece! It is a firm belief of Little Known Help Zone that while it is important to help with the necessities, it is also important to bring smiles and support the sheer delights of childhood.

To raise this money, we will be selling baked goods to bring smiles to children’s faces there. A smile for a smile.

Additionally, we will be sharing information about a great opportunity where coupon clipping can help Mama Tara. If you visit Common Kindess http://www.commonkindness.com/printable-grocery-coupons and create an account then chose Mama Tara, the orphanage receives a portion of the advertisement fee based off how many coupons are clipped for them.

Fundraiser Cause #2- Guatemala

The next cause that Little Known Help Zone will be raising money for is Mayan Families in Guatemala.

Specifically, we will be raising money to send a Guatemalan child to school for a year. For $360, a child can attend school for one year and further their education to move on in life and support their families.

Little Known Help Zone will be selling erasers and pencil toppers at $1 a piece to benefit these students, and hopefully enough money will be raised to send a child to school! Stay tuned for more!
