Dear donors, friends and family of our project "All Children Deserve to Dream", it is an honor to be able to greet you and tell you new news of this last time.  Thanks to your support we are able to motivate and support each one of our children to dare to dream and set goals.
Thanks to your unconditional support, we have been able to start this new year 2022 and make new dreams come true in this period. The first dream is that of Katherine, an 18 year old teenager, studious, responsible, whose dream is to access a preparation to take the entrance exam to the public university, her biggest dream is to pass the exam and study industrial engineering; Katherine with great enthusiasm said that in a few years she sees herself as a future and successful engineer, having her own company, helping her mother and people living in vulnerable situations.  Thanks to you who make this program possible, we have been able to make Katherine's dream come true by giving her a scholarship for 7 months at a renowned pre-university institute so that she can prepare to take the university entrance exam. Between smiles and tears of emotion we have witnessed her achievements and academic progress. We are sure that the best tool is to educate oneself in order to defend oneself on a daily basis.    The second dream that we have been able to make come true thanks to your support is that of Xiomara, a beautiful fifteen year old teenager whose dream was to have a spa-hairdresser day, to feel pampered by an expert in beauty, she mentioned that she wanted to have a beautiful curly hairstyle in her hair, to have her make-up done and her greatest desire was to have her nails painted, she projects herself every day to be a better person, she sees herself in the future as a dentist. Xiomara with tears in her eyes the moment her dream came true mentioned that it was the best day of her life, she never imagined being in a spa and feeling so beautiful.     The next dream is of two beautiful children, Camila and Franklin, 10 years old, whose biggest dream is to have a bicycle, to be able to go out to the park, play with their friends and help their recycler moms to load cardboard on their bike to relieve the burden of their moms' work. These dreams were motivating because when we interviewed them, they mentioned that they had only ridden a bicycle from a friend a long time ago, and that it was impossible for them to have a bicycle because their mother did not have enough money to pay for the gift. The moment of making these dreams come true, their eyes filled with tears of emotion, their big smiles and their words and jumps of emotion are inexplicable. Franklin with his voice between cuts hugged his mother and told her my dream came true, today is the best day of my life. Camila jumped with excitement, put on her helmet, got on her bike and went for her first ride, came back and mentioned that all dreams come true, hugged her mother and mentioned that they will be able to carry cardboard on the bike and that their work trips will no longer be so heavy.  

Thank you dear donors because beyond fulfilling dreams is to encourage our children and adolescents to project goals and that all dreams are possible to be fulfilled with effort, that no dream depends on their social status. Thank you for supporting us to fulfill; each dream inspires us, each dream has brought smiles, tears, but above all illusion and hope that together we can build a better present and future for our children and adolescents.


Thank you for having a heart of gold, and for making many hearts keep beating and dreaming.

Together We Are Change.

Dear Friends

I hope you had a great week and will be able to get a little rest this weekend

I want to start by thanking you for all your suppor on this amazing project.

The main goal of dreams comming true on the community we are working with, is to change the reality and the way our young children and teenagers think.

They only used to think they can follow their parents lead, becoming street vendors, woking on contrustion and other activieties thier parents work on.

With their dreams comming true, we dont juts put a smile on their faces, we teach them that they can achieve their goals and dreaming as long as you work hard, become a reality!

You have made a huge difference in so many lifes!

The result of this project so far has been, children with a better self steem, good grades in school and  hope in their hearts.

We are currently working on new intreviews with new little ones, please continue supporting this project and assuring the world that  ALL CHILDREN DO DESERVE TO DREAM!

We will soon be sharing new dreams such as  “I DREAM OF HAVING ENOUGH FOOD ON OUR TABLE AND EAT EVERY DAY ” 

“ MY  DREAM IS HAVING THE OPPORTUNITY OF GRADUATING FROM HIGHSCHOOL AND ATTENDING UNIVERSITY TO BECOME A DENTIST”

From the bottom of my heart, Than you for your  trust and support, please stay safe!

Dear Friends, it is an honor to be able to greet you and tell you about the progress of our project "All Children Deserve to Dream", in this last period. As you know, we seek to encourage and motivate each of our boys and girls, that we can all dream and that all dreams and goals can come true if we put a lot of dedication and commitment.

Despite the situation we are going through with the pandemic, thanks to your unconditional support, we have been able to make new dreams come true.

The first dream came true to a group of 12 girls, boys and adolescents; in which they dreamed of having their own Taekwondo uniform, to be able to carry out their training with the appropriate equipment and implements. We want to tell you that these children, thanks to the discipline generated by this practice, have allowed them to learn new concentration techniques, self-defense techniques, self-control and above all the importance of improving their physical condition. The second dream come true thanks to your support is that of “Juan” a 7-year-old boy who dreamed of having new shoes and socks. Thanks to his unconditional support, Juan was happy because at last he can play soccer and run. The third dream that we have been able to fulfill thanks to you is that of a 10-year-old girl "Key" her dream was to have a purple bicycle, "Key" she always saw her neighbors play on a bicycle and longed to have one. Thanks to your support, we were able to make his dream come true, Key was very happy, his eyes shone with emotion, he got on the bike wearing his new helmet and gloves, he took a few laps and hugged us saying thank you I never thought about dreams They come true."

Thank you dear donors because beyond fulfilling dreams is encouraging our children that all goals and dreams are possible. In addition to giving you a magical and unique moment. Each dream inspires us, each dream has brought us smiles, tears, but above all hope and hope that together we can build a better present and future for our children and adolescents.

Thank you for having a heart of gold, and making many hearts keep beating and dreaming.

Together We are the Change.

"If you can dream it, you can do it."

It is important to mention that the pandemic that we are experiencing worldwide has brought many consequences not only in health; the majority of children and teenagers have been the most affected victims of COVID -19,with  interrupted education, confinement; This has led to them being at greater risk of hunger, sexual, physical, psychological violence and school dropout.

It is for this reason that we decided to act immediately for our children. This year 2021 we are very happy to tell you that we have reactivated the “All Children Deserve to Dream” dream program, our goal is motivate andengourage each one of our beneficiaries who are in a state of vulnerability.

Thanks to your unconditional support, despite the situation that we are going through with the pandemic, we have joined forces to fulfill the dream of seven children. You gave our children a magical, unique and unforgettable moment. Motivating them to build confidence in themselves, recover the right to be happy, grow healthy and without violence.

Thanks to your collaboration we acomplished these magical dreams; -Climbing a mountain.- Being a princess for a day. - Have the dress of the little mermaid. -First time at the Movie Theater with prents. - Own a stuffed Unicorn. - Own a remote control car and new clothes. -Have  new skates.
After fulfilling these beautiful dreams these were their testimonies:
"The mountain is very very high, the clouds are like foam and dreams are achievable" 9 years

"I want to be a princess to help all children fulfill their dreams, like today I have fulfilled mine." 13 years

"It is never too late to get to what you wanted since you were a child, my illusion from the age of five has always been to feel like a great princess, and today I am and will be all my life" 8 years

"I loved being able to attent to the  movie theater with the people I love the most in my life, my parents, it was an unforgettable day, the best day of my life." 12 years

Dear Friends, 

I hope this email finds you well

I wanted to thank everybody for your unconditional support and trust, Hearts of Gold and its partner foundations are here today because of you!

As you know, because of the COVID we have had to pause our Dreams project to make sure we keep everybody safe.

While we paused the dreams of our children and teenagers, we have made sure they have food, clothes and medicines to  overcome this crisis, we have also been able to share ice cream, donuts, school supplies and more.

Now that everything seems to be a little better and learning how to continue our lives with this virus around, we have decided to activate our Dreams project again.

We will be focusing  on dreams that dont require to be around big crowds and  unsafe public spaces.

Please stay tuned for the  next report, we have planned a princess, mermaid and unicorn tea party!

Thank you for making this possible, thank you for allowing us to continue offering our services and for warming the hearts of our chilodren and teenagers.
