Where The Money Goes
100% of proceeds go directly to the needy families through Children International. Aura’s House is a 100% volunteer organization. Also 100% of donations go towards all our projects. Aura’s House At a Glance

Donors to our projects will receive a receipt for tax deduction purposes within 3-5 weeks from Children International or the Registered Non Profit Organization we are working with. If you have any problems or questions regarding your tax receipt or have any comments,  you may email us at: contact (at) aurashouse.com

Aura’s old house.


All projects* on the Aura’s House site are 100% US tax deductible. (*With only the exception of our now completed Emergency Education Project in Nigeria.)
Kristen Palana originally set up a secure Paypal donation account specifically for the purpose of raising money to build a new brick house for the Hernandez family. Our goal was met and Aura Hernandez’s house was finished in June of 2005. See pics. Today we have a direct payment link through Children International accepting online donations for our current projects.

In addition to CI, we are also work with the non-profit organization, United With Hope, a Georgia 501(c)(3) organization for our recently completed Emergency Orphan project in India.

Offline donations for all other Projects are sent directly to Children International (and may take 2-3 weeks to be added to the site’s total). Online donations go directly to Children International and are earmarked for Aura’s House projects. Online donations are reflected in the site’s totals weekly, usually on Mondays. If you have recently made a contribution and don’t want to wait until we get the weekly spreadsheet from CI, you can email your donation receipt to: contact (at) aurashouse.com and we’ll add it to the project totals ASAP.

Once We Reach Our Goal

Once we reach a project goal, the project’s materials and items are purchased. Through working with Children International, United With Hope, and most recently StayInSchoolng Inititative, we will be able to post updates and photos on all Aura’s House projects, past and present. Donors can also join our mailing list to receive a quarterly online newsletter of all the latest developments.
