I have been a supporter of The Orphaned Earring since I heard about it. I love non-profit causes that really give back to the community and knowing that the money I donate is actually going to the organization is really important to me.
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!
You can also donate at any time visiting The Orphaned Earring website
So do not be shy, head over to the pages and help this girls have their dream come true!!
