Rubbish to Runway: Support our teachers!

Hello everyone, and happy September! Today we want to talk to you all about our fundraising event coming up September 12 (3 PM GMT / 5 PM EDT), Long Way Home's Rubbish to Runway! This is a virtual event, meaning you can join us from anywhere around the world!

The Rubbish to Runway originated in 2011 as a parallel endeavor to LWH’s mission of using recycled materials such as glass bottles, plastic ecobricks filled with trash, and earth-filled tires in building sustainable structures. Rubbish to Runway events have been held in North American cities such as Boston, Houston, Los Angeles, and Edmonton, Ontario and have raised over $150,000 for LWH since its beginning.

While navigating the recovery from the COVID-19 shutdowns, local employment remains a top priority. Your contribution to this event will help maintain the livelihoods of teachers and builders within San Juan Comalapa, Guatemala, ensuring that they are able to continue to provide for their families as we emerge from this pandemic.

This year we have set a goal of $10,000, can you help us reach it? 100% of money fundraised will go towards supporting our incredible teachers and administration who have worked and continue to work tirelessly to support their student's.

Tickets for the event are pay what you can, as we want to make the event as accessible as possible.

You can also support us by purchasing raffle tickets (10$) to enter a chance to win $1,000!

We hope to see you there, thank you for your continuous support for Long Way Home!
