For the last 5 years, the Bloganthropy Award winner, The Orphaned Earring (El Arete Huerfano in Spanish) has helped over 300 orphan kids in Latin America with food, clothes, school supplies and arts & crafts.
By collecting orphan earrings and unused jewelry, The Orphaned Earring recycles the materials by making bracelets, thus, giving new meaning to the jewelry and a new home to the orphan earring. One hundred percent of the proceeds go to the orphanages but most of the time the bracelet sales sometimes doesn’t even reach the $150 a month goal.
Even though The Orphaned Earring struggles every month, it’s incredible to see how $30 a month they feed about 60 children daily for a month in Guatemala. Isn’t that amazing? While that is truly an accomplishment, we often forget that these orphanages also house young ladies with dreams of having a Quinceanera celebration, similar to a Sweet 16, a Quinceanera is a big deal in Latin American countries that celebrates a girls right-of-passage. Without parents to make this celebration happen, these young ladies will never have a special day due to the hardships they face.
This year, in addition to our regular contributions and ongoing help to each center, we want to make the dreams of 7 teenage girls come true and help them get the Quinceanera they deserve but we need your help!
Become a Quinceanera MADRINA o PADRINO and help raise money for celebrations for 4 girls in Mexico and 3 girls in Guatemala. This is how you can help!
