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!

Now that the frigid weather is finally behind us, let’s wrap up the Hogar de Amor Christmas project.

Just Born Donation

I reached out to Just Born, my local candy company, and received a very generous donation of many Mike&Ike flavors. Each child received 6 big packs of candy and I packaged them in Christmas themed goodie bags.

The children will be very excited for these treats and Little Known Help Zone extends its sincerest gratitude to Just Born for their kindness.

Donation from Alex and Isabelle Hair Ties

photo 1Little Known Help Zone has started a new project! We are collecting Christmas presents for the Hogar De Amor orphanage run by http://helpinghonduraskids.org . The children of La Ceiba do not have access to everyday things you or I may be able to get, so I thought it would be nice to sen down Christmas gifts to the orphanage.

Recently, the kind owners of Alex and Isabelle Hair ties sent a donation of hair tie packages for the girls at the orphanage. Little Known Help Zone is quite happy and very grateful for their kindness. The hair ties are beautiful and will be delightful to include in the Christmas presents. I have always used these hair ties due to their eye pleasing nature, great quality, and kindness towards hair.

Alex and Isabelle are a very small operation hair tie company who are devoted to giving back to the community. It is a family affair ran by two moms and their young daughters. Half of the money made goes to the the girl’s horseback riding and the other half goes towards pediatric cancer. Alex and Isabelle have a wonderful mission and I highly suggest you check them out! http://www.alexandisabellehairties.com

Little Known Help Zone is having luck collecting donations but will still need much more. There are 22 orphans, 11 girls and 11 boys. If you would like to contribute, please email me at littleknownhelpzone@gmail.com

Apparel is still in the works, along with a large scale fundraiser being planned in spring! Check out our etsy and stay tuned!
