dona por la causa, por favor

in giving back

I just want to say thank you.

Thank you, thank you, thank you from the bottom of my Everythingtarian heart for all the donations, good thoughts, and prayers you’ve been sending for Jovenes en Camino, the orphanage that Brandi and I are raising money for this holiday season.

As of right now, we’re at $715 {!!!}. I can’t tell you how excited I am about this – we are SO CLOSE to hitting our goal of $1,000! I know many of you are probably cash-strapped after the holiday season, but if you’re still looking for a group to give back to or a great organization to support, please consider this fabulous place.

If you can, we would be honored if you would help out if you haven’t already.

It takes $28,000 per MONTH to keep Jovenes running, and while I know money is tight for all of us, every little bit we can raise is going to help them cover their costs.

The minimum donation is whatever you want it to be. Maybe you can go without a new jar of almond butter or coconut milk ice cream and donate that $5 to 10 here instead. Or maybe you can give more and sacrifice your holiday lattes for the month of December. In the grand scheme of things, it might not be much of a sacrifice for YOU, but it can make a huge difference to them.

If you are feeling merry this holiday season,

please click here to donate to Jovenes!

Or here.

And perhaps here.

You can click here too.

Donations are completely secure and private.

Thank you all for everything you do – I know how amazing this community is and the power that comes when people truly get behind something they believe in.

Love and good wishes to all!

Great job! You are very close. I wish I could give a little to everyone but this year I have devoted myself to soles4souls.
