TEN2END Tuesday – An Inspiring Young Lady

There is just one week left in our our TEN2END Campaign… that leaves us with 7 days to reach our goal of having 200 people give TEN dollars a month to help END poverty, injustice, hunger, hopelessness and despair in La Limonada.

Here’s the story of one young lady who found a way to help…

A couple weeks ago we received an email from a high school student from Michigan. In her email she shared her desire to join the TEN2END Campaign. She could not foresee a way she would be able to give $10 a month in a traditional way, so she got creative and came up with a way she could make it work. Here is her email…

Hello,

I am a High School student in Michigan who visited La Limonada 2 summers ago and I can’t seem to forget about that place. I really wanted to sponsor a little girl named Astrid but I found it was too much for me to commit to. It makes me happy to see that she is sponsored by someone now though.

Anyway, I really would like to join your “ten2end” campaign. The only thing is, I only work during the summer. I also don’t have a credit card or anything like that for online payment. I was wondering if every month this summer I could somehow mail $40 and then be covered until next year. Just let me know if this is a possibility.

My Dad lost his job a few months ago and so we are still struggling through that. I have seen so many people give seemingly small gifts to my parents over the last months that have meant so much. A little really goes a long way….

We received her first $40 donation this past week. This is a high school student who has found a way to give $120 of her summer job income to help transform people’s lives in La Limonada.

She is truly an inspiring young lady!

If you would like to join her, you can go to www.TEN2END.org today to get started.
