Little Known Help Zone just sponsored our student Julio for his 3rd year of school through Mayan Families.
Julio is a bright young boy studying accounting and doing incredibly well. We are excited to see his potential, and any further donations to help out him, his mother, and 4 siblings would be incredibly helpful.
We are still waiting to hear how he and his family is doing after his misfortunate period of energy lapse and malnutrition and will keep you updated.
To end the semester of our labor rights advocating, Little Known Help Zone sold candy grams for May Day that were delivered in people’s mailboxes. The chocolate we sold was fair trade and organic and also benefited endangered animals. We made over $50 that will be donated to ORMUSA, a women’s labor rights organization in El Salvador.
To put together the candygrams, we had an end of the year party to celebrate our accomplishments with some chinese food.
We hope to have more successful fundraisers in the following semesters to continue to contribute to human rights causes in Central America.
If you remember, Little Known Help Zone sponsored Julio Ruiz’s school for 2 years, and also purchased a bed for his family.
We were just made aware that Julio has been suffering medically due to malnutrition, and although Little Known Help Zone has been helping out, the more aid his family receives, the better.
If you are interested in sponsoring food for Julio’s family, go to https://www.mayanfamilies.org/donate/simple and specify your donation for student number #2684. Any bit helps, and we thank you for your support of Julio!

On Wednesday, September 27th Little Known Help Zone Bryn Mawr held our first event, a yoga fundraiser.
Prior to that, we sold raffle tickets for a gift card to Mom’s Organic Market and raised $50.
The event was an hour long yoga class taught by BMC Alum Alexandra Seits and had delicious snacks afterwards! The event was a success, and even though the outdoor component was rained out, we held it inside and it was an enjoyable day.
Check out all the photos!
Come out on September 28th at 5:00 PM in the Cloisters for an outdoor yoga class to enjoy the weather as we transition into fall. The class is “Donate What You Can, Leave With a Lifted Heart.” Class is taught by BMC Alum Alexandra Seits ’16.
Rain location is New Dorm Second Common Room!
This is the second time LKHZ has hosted a yoga event on Bryn Mawr’s Campus and the 4th Yoga event ever through LKHZ.
Yoga is an influential aspect of Central American culture, and as we raise awareness for human rights in Central America, we want to embrace positivity and spread the word. Yoga in Central America is not a common association, but through the past twenty years has grown more common and has been adopted for a variety of uses. In addition to yoga bringing in tourism money to provide jobs and resources to local people, yoga has powerful effects in other contexts. Schools, orphanages, and shelters are implementing yoga as an option for students and those facing troubles to relieve troubles, balance energy, and brighten outlooks. Also, free yoga classes are common for Honduran children looking for relief from internal conflicts such as the drug wars. In situations where workers are kept in uncomfortable positions for long periods of time, such as Salvadoran coffee sorters, yoga has been a small step in the fight for better worker’s rights to provide a healthy and positive break from the work. Yoga is an activity in Central America that promotes positivity, peace, and harmony.
Support Little Known Help Zone by visiting us when we table 11:30-3:30 on Thursday in the Campus Center and 5-7 Monday in Erdman selling raffle tickets to win a $25 gift card to Mom’s Organic Market! Tickets are 1/$1, 6/$5, 15/$10. All money will go to human rights causes in Central America.
The event will have healthy snacks, the hour long yoga class, and the raffle drawing!
Event sponsored by BMC SGA.
