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.


Big hugs,

Dear friends, 


I hope this email finds you well


We want to thank you for your your kind heart, your support and trust have made a big difference in our community.


Due to the crisis we are currently facing we have had to stop our regular activities and make a lot of temporary changes.


95% of the families that attend our partner foundations have lost their jobs and are struggling with having nothing to feed their children or how to pay rent and utilities.


For this reason we have created our food project, and with the support of other  community organizations, we send non perishables to the families that need it the most.


Every Friday they get rice, beans, milk, oatmeal, lentis, tuna, and many other products that will allow a family of up to 5 members to eat for a week.


We consider that since we have had to pause our regular services due to de COVID 19, we needed to make sure our children and teenagers can stay at home having something to fill their tummies with, they want to thank you with their hearts, you make them smile and give them hope!


We can't wait to go back to  the activities that you initially support, but we wanted you to know  we are being able to make a difference in the community  because of you.


Please stay safe and healthy!


Thank you for your trust and support,

Dear Friends, 


We would like to share with you the very first dream of one of our loved children from our partner Foundation OSSO.


Cristian a11 year old orphan with Autism, his dream was to have lots of balloons and a full sports outfit.


We showed up at  the orphanage and arranged the room before he walked in, we were not sure how he would react, Autistic children don't tend to show much emotion.


When he walked into the room he did not say a word other that “ are all the balloons just for me?”

he started jumping up  and down, he tried on his outfit and played with the balloons the hole afternoon.


The directors of the orphanage where shocked to hear Cristian,had an  extensive vocabulary because he rarely speaks. he kept looking at one of the director repeating “ I am Happy!”


We had a moment where our eyes filled with tears, we genuinely  felt Cristians happiness.


I kept thinking to myself,how grateful and fortunate we are to have your kind heart to support this project that will bring so many smiles to our children.


We have now a calendar for this 2020, we will be accomplishing dreams like flying on an airplane, become a bike racer, climb a mountain, meeting a pink unicorn, see the ocean for the first time, be a firefighter for one day, eat rice and ketchup, and many more.


We want to leave you with the smile of our dear Cristian, thanking you for gifting him with a full afternoon of fun and love.
