Thanks to your generous donation 3 special children will be starting the school year off right! To kick off the Bright Futures Program your donations were used to provide each of the 3 children with almost all the items from the requested lists of school supplies their teachers provided as well as a backpack. This year we are planning on beginning a Homework Club where the students will receive tutoring once a week. Thank you for being a part of making this school year memorable for these dedicated children and for standing with their families to give support for the sacrifices they are making to educate their children. Keep a look out for further project updates!

Happy Eco-Store Customer
The world's 3rd Eco-Store is now up and running! Eco-Store La Navideña started quite unexpectedly and organically in our headquarters as word of the project is spreading around town. While our clientele is still small, they are regular. Some of this Eco-Store's most popular items are sugar, coffee, clothes soap and detergent, bleach and even bed comforters. Across the 3 Eco-Stores we now have over 2,500 eco-bricks to be used in the construction of more than 3 rainwater harvesting systems. We are also currently applying for funds to open 2 additional Eco-Stores as well as we have secured funds to keep these first 3 Eco-Stores running for an additional 6 months. This project has been a blessing to our community and our environment and has prevented over 625 pounds of plastic trash from being thrown in rivers or burned. Thanks again for your support! Additional donations will go towards maintaining the current Eco-Stores to keep the project going.

Meet the children
By Colleen Supanich - Project Manager
We currently have 4 children looking forward to starting their studies next year. Today we want to spot light one of the students who your donations will help make this possible. Meet Yesica. Yesica is the middle child of a family of 3 sisters and is 6 years old. Her father is a farmer and her mother works in a tortilla shop. Yesica likes to play shop keeper, her favorite color is purple, and her favorite food is noodle soup with vegetables. Yesica wants to study to one day become a teacher. Your donation will help make Yesica's dreams to come true! We want to thank you on behalf of these 4 children for your donation.
