In 2013, I was blessed with the opportunity to go to Guatemala with my youth group from here in BC. This was an incredible experience, and I have been involved with the ministry in El Tizate through their child sponsorship program ever since. When approached about the 100 at a Hundred birthday campaign, I was so excited to be able to support Global Shore in this way!
This year I turned 20, and I was not planning on having a party with my friends, however, this idea encouraged me to get some people together to celebrate and raise money for Guatemala! It was incredible to see other young people putting aside a donation amidst summer jobs and students loans. All together, we reached the goal, and had a stellar time in community with one another, knowing that we were making a tangible difference in Guatemala.
