Etsy Shop- Wax Melts

The newest item to be listed in the Etsy shop is wax melts made for a candle wax tart warmer. These melts come in a 6 pack for $5, and are lime scented. Made with soy wax and organic coconut oil, these tarts are great for your wax melter in a dorm or apartment and are fragrant and fresh.

They are packaged in individual cupcake cups for each use, and currently only come in the lime scent. If popular, more scents will come soon!

In Mexico- Book Delivery!

While in Mexico this past week, LKHZ donated a large bag of books to KKIS, Keeping Kids in School. This organization donates large amounts of school supplies (over 2,000 bags) to students in Mexican schools, as well as a box of supplies for the teachers. These English library books, donated by Salisbury Middle School last year during a trip to El Salvador, will help children practice reading English at school and also serves as a great exposure to younger kids.

Check out KKIS to learn more about their amazing work!

Volunteering In Mexico

LKHZ will be traveling to Mexico in a few weeks and making sure to give back while in the area. When in Playa del Carmen, LKHZ will be donating the remaining book donations from last year’s trip to Keep Kids in School Project (KKIS). This organization works hard to both keep kids in school and educate them in English. The English books will be great practice to read.

Also while there, LKHZ will be helping to pack backpacks of school supplies for once the school season resumes in Fall. Stay tuned for pictures from the visit, as well as upcoming projects!

Check out KKIS here!

Julio Cesar Sponsorship for 2016

It’s time again for Mayan Children Sponsorships so they can go to school, and Little Known Help Zone has responsored the past sponsored student Julio Cesar to continue for another year of school. This was made possible by generous donations during Bryn Mawr events and through speaking at PETE&C. For $360, Julio will attend school for another year and further his education which would otherwise be impossible.

If you remember, LKHZ has sponsored two students in the past, including Julio Cesar. The other student, Brenda, is graduating this year, but Julio still has a few years in high school to go. LKHZ also donated a bed to Julio’s family in December.

Once Julio finishes school, LKHZ will stop student sponsorships for the moment to create a more comprehensive program that is more inclusive of children in need rather than of specific students.
