Yuselfi Elena G. (8) of Barranquilla, Colombia Receives her Gifts!
Written by Aura’s House Partner, Inga Katelari
Good day, Everyone!
I wanted to share with you my excitement that I received the report and photos from my sponsored sweetheart Yuselfi’s combined Income Generation Project and Education Special Needs Gift. This was a combined gift of an Education Special Needs Gift for Yuselfi and a fundraiser on Firstgiving.com that I started at the end of January 2011, which was completed at the end of March, but it took a while to get to Children International and to be completed. Yuselfi’s Income Generating Project raised money to provide her family with two washing machines needed to start a business of washing clothes and renting washing machines.
With this project, Yuselfi’s mother expects to increase their income by about $80 to $110 on a monthly basis which averages to more than 50% – 70% of their current income to be able to provide for her two children. I would like thank very much from the bottom of my heart all the wonderful donors and friends who have helped me to make this dream come true for Yuselfi and her mother! I’m very happy to share the report and photos with you.
The gifts that were provided to the child:
2 Washing Machines
1 Reading Book
1 PE Uniform
1 Bottled rinse
Receive cordial greetings along with your whole family. I hope you are in good health. I write this letter to thank you for the gifts you sent me especially because it allowed me to pay for my uniform and books that will be very useful for me to attend school. I also want to thank you so much for the washing machines that will help my mother increase our income and help us get ahead. (!) May God heap lots of blessings on you!
I fondly say good-bye,
