Evin is sponsored by Christiane Relvas of Illinois, USA.

Christiane writes:

Evin Gerardo, who will be 12 years old in April, is a boy who has already been through quite a lot for someone so young. He and his two siblings were abandoned by their parents and they now live in a single-room home with their grandmother and an aunt. The aunt works and provides as best she can for the family. This extended family has only two folding beds, a few dishes, no towels, and they cook what little food they have over an earthen stove.


Small Project #12 launched January 10, 2007:Complete 2/17/07. Thank You!

Our goal was to give Evin (11), and his famiy in Honduras the gift of beds, bedding, clothes, a stove, furniture, and food. Our goal was to raise $750. You can view pictures of Evin and his family here.

See photos of the gifts Evin and his family received.

*Special Thanks * All donations up to the first $500 were automatically doubled thanks to the $250 matching challenge by Evin's sponsor, Christiane. Also special thanks to Steven Krumholz for his multiple donations and for finishing off this project.

continued from left...

We hope to be able to raise $750 for Evin and his family to be used for the following:

1 full bed $145
beddings for full bed $30
beddings for twin bed $20
towels $19
1 Stove $87
set of pots/pans $63
plastic wardrobe $53
clothes for child $36
food basket $47
latrine $250

TOTAL $750

I will match donations – dollar for dollar – up to the first $250.

That will bring the final total to $750 for this family. The extra $250 will be put towards the construction of a new latrine for the family.

Thank you for your support.

Lift One

In 2005 Children International launched an online fundraising tool inspired by Aura's House called SponsorThon. Since then, it has now grown and evolved into the Lift One Project.

Just $22 a month will help a child get basic medical and dental care, schooling, clothing, and more.
